Banana Nutella Ice Cream
Winters and ice cream!! Sounds insane?? what a combination. What if it’s chilled winters, ice creams are for all seasons. I crave these ice creams more even in cold winters, drizzling rainy days, and of course, summers are the best season for anything cooling for our mouth and ultimately it helps us to cool down a little bit. This is one of the best summer treats.
But this Banana Nutella Ice Cream is one of my favorites now. And why not? I have all good reasons to love this ice cream or say nice cream.
This Banana Nutella Ice cream is made with only 3 ingredients. And it took less than 10 minutes to prepare this ice cream or nice cream with frozen banana.
No churning machine or no other preparation. Perfect dessert with your perfect partner on Valentine’s day, a sweet love gift for your Mom & Dad on Mother’s day/ Father’s day. Or simply a dessert treats on any family get together. The only requirement of planning is to freeze bananas well in advance.
How to Make Banana Nutella Ice Cream (Only 2 Ingredients)?
This is in fact made with 2 ingredients i.e. banana and Nutella. 3rd one (choco chips) is optional. But that gives more chocolaty flavor and crunchy bites with soft ice creams. Nutella is the chocolaty hazelnut spread. It adds a nutty chocolate flavor.
You can replace the choco chips with chopped dry fruits raisins or berries. Otherwise, keep it simple with only banana and Nutella. Add some coffee powder for a mocha flavored nice cream.
These nice creams can be made with 2 consistency level. One is soft consistency which you can eat immediately after you blend it. 2nd one is firm like regular ice creams. For that you need to keep it in freezer for 2 hours so that it will be firm enough.
Can I make this ice cream in blender?
Food processor is the best for this process. but still you can make this in blender. If you have high speed blender then it will do same magic. If you are using regular blender, then you need to add 1/4 cup milk. Then once you finish mixing everything keep in freezer for 2 hours to set.
Chop ripe banana to 1 inch pieces. Place it in a fridge bag and keep in freezer for 30 – 40 minutes. Keep max chilling in freezer. Keep in freezer until it’s frozen completely. (time may vary depending on cooling pattern).
After banana is completely frozen and hard, remove these frozen banana and put them in a food processor or high speed blender.
Start blending it. When it becomes smooth, add nutella and blend once more till both are mixed well. Add chocochips at this stage and mix with help of a spoon.
Transfer to an air tight container. You can have this softie immediately or store it in freezer.
Isn’t it perfect? No churning, no machine, no hard work. Only 10 minutes and a quick dessert is ready. You can freeze longer for 4 – 6 hours for a better ice-like texture.
Can I refreeze Banana Ice cream?
Yes, if it’s not ready (medium icy texture) to eat just after blending, freeze this in an airtight freezer-safe box. Whenever you have to eat, just thaw for a few minutes ( 3 – 5 minutes) before you serve.
What is a substitute for Nutella?
Nutella is one of the main ingredients in this ice cream. However, if you don’t get Nutella, you can check for a similar nutty chocolate spread for this recipe. I would go for Hershey’s Choco Spread. If you don’t want a chocolaty flavor, peanut butter would also be a great substitute.
Does Nice cream or banana ice cream always taste like banana?
Yes. Since banana makes the base of the ice cream, it dominates the flavor in any flavored banana ice cream. Even if you add fruit pulps, you will still get banana flavor to the final ice cream. Which is not bad also I think.
