2 Ingredient Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream

on June 21, 2016

You make this Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream with two ingredients, that’s it. Frozen strawberries and frozen bananas. When you end up with those bananas that get to the point of not great for eating anymore, just peel them, cut them into chunks, and put them in the freezer. They will turn brown if left in there too long, so use them up as quickly as you can. Not that I have experience with that or anything. I mean, I did finally figure out what those black blobs in the zip top bag were. I guess maybe they had been in there a bit too long. I usually cut or break the bananas into 3 or 4 pieces before putting them into a zip top freezer bag and putting them into the freezer for smoothies or ice cream. I guess it might be a good idea to label the bag so you know what’s in there in future.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream

There really isn’t much of a recipe for this.

Pulse in food processor until smooth and combined:

2 cups frozen strawberries

2 cups frozen bananas


I used the pretty little local strawberries for this ice cream.


They all go into the food processor.


I give them a few pulses, just to get things going, then let it go until the mixture is smooth.


You can eat it right away and there it is – soft serve!


Or you can put it into the freezer for a couple of hours to firm it up more.


When leaving it in the freezer for a longer period, I let it sit out for about 10-15 minutes before trying to scoop it. I’ve also tried this with raspberries and bananas, bananas and cocoa, and just bananas. It’s so good and good for you! Just pure fruit and nothing else. The perfect summertime treat!
