    1 large ripe banana

    1. Start with ripe bananas: They should be sweet and soft.
    Peel, cut and put the bananas in an airtight container: A freezer-safe glass bowl like this one is fine, or you can use a freezer bag. Freeze for at least 4 hours, but ideally overnight.
    2. Blend the frozen banana pieces in a small food processor or powerful blender: Pulse the frozen banana pieces. We've found that a small food processor or chopper works best. Blended banana to creamy, soft-serve ice cream. If adding any mix-ins, like peanut butter or chocolate chips, this is the moment to do it.)
    3. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until solid: You can eat the ice cream immediately, but it will be quite soft. You can also transfer it back into the airtight container and freeze it until solid, like traditional ice cream.

    Here are a few favorite mix-ins to make it even more awesome:
    • Spoonful of any nut butter
    • Handful of chocolate chips
    • Dollop of Nutella
    • Tablespoon of cocoa powder
    • Half a teaspoon of spices (cinnamon, cardomom, ginger etc.)
    • A few Nuts
    • Fresh or Dry Fruit
    • Honey
