Cooking Tips

  • 1. Bananas should be peeled and frozen for at least 8 hours before preparing the ice-cream.
  • 2. This recipe also works wonderfully in a Ninja Creami or your preferred ice cream maker. If using a Ninja Creami, just blend all the ingredients until smooth. Then transfer the mixture to the ice cream container and freeze for a minimum of 24 hours before processing. In this instance, fresh bananas are recommended as they blend more easily.
