Roasted Bananas!

When life gives you bananas...

you roast them and throw them into ice cream!!!


well that's exactly what i did here..

recipe taken from David Lebovitz 'The Perfect Scoop'

Roasted Banana Ice Cream

makes about 1 Liter

3 medium-sized bananas, peeled

1/3 cup (70g) packed light brown sugar

1 tblspoon butter, salted or unsalted, cut into small pieces

1 1/2 cups whole milk

2 tblspoon granulated sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 tsp coarse salt

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius
  2. Slice bananas into 1/2 inch thick slickes and toss them with brown sugar and butter in 2 liter baking dish. Bake for 40mins. Stirring just once during the process, until bananas are browned and cooked through.
  3. Scrape bananas and the thick syrup into a blender and add milk, granulated sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and salt and puree till smooth.
  4. Chill mixture thoroughly in the fridge then freeze in the icecream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
and ta-da.. and overnight, you'll see the emergence of a beautiful canary yellow banana ice cream in your dessert bowls the next day. I'm so loving this... Just wish the ice-cream maker could do a better job, the ice-crystals were still pretty rough and not dispersed right. *sigh*..

the malt ice cream recipe looks pretty tempting.. hehe.

Wow great ice cream. I have a ice cream maker, but the last time I used it the engine burned up!

I made this a couple of times and love it! It has a little more crystals because it's not a custard base but the taste is out of this world :-)

linda: I will indeed try that recipe sometime soon! thanks for dropping by!

ladyironchef: Yeh.. roasting the bananas result in a sweeter caramelised flavor. What you don't like banana cakes? I'm the total opposite of you yar! never like eating bananas plain. haha.
