Banana Split Ice Cream Recipe

Sunday, August 4, 2013
Since I purchased and ice cream maker I can't find another dessert I love more. I know the ingredients are wholesome and much better for you, ( although fattening), however after looking at the ingredients in the store with many high fructose and can't pronounce ingredients, I'm sold that this is healthier no matter how fattening it is. With moderation you can enjoy the wonderful rich taste of a wonderful confection this gives. The ice cream is smooth, rich and full of flavor. The fruit accents it perfectly!

Note: Buy the freshest of fruits for the best results

1 or 2 bananas chopped in small chunks
2 cups fresh strawberries sliced
1 cup fresh or canned pineapple chunks chopped fine and drained on paper towels
1 cup fresh sliced pitted bing or rainier cherries
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

3 tablespoons lemon juice
Add the banana to this to keep from browning let sit until ready to add to the ice cream. Drain before adding.

1 cup chilled whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
2 cups  chilled heavy cream

Optional: Whipped cream and hot fudge sauce

Whisk in a medium sized bowl cold milk and sugar until dissolved around 2 minutes.
Whisk in heavy cream and vanilla.

I like to freeze this for around 2 hours before adding to the machine so its nice and cold.

Add to the ice cream maker and proceed to the instruction manual for ice cream maker around 25 minutes.

While this is making the ice cream combine all the fruits together draining the bananas first.
Around 5 minutes before the ice cream is done add the fruits and then the chocolate. Immediately pour into a container with a lid and freeze until solid. Take out for 10 minutes before serving. Add whipped cream and hot fudge sauce.
