Homemade Banana Ice Cream with Mini Chocolate Chips and Coconut
After seeing several posts around the web making banana ice cream using only frozen bananas and a little bit of milk, I decided to make it with my kids. It was a super hot day and the kids were bored so we grabbed the ripe bananas out of the freezer and made this sweet and tasty treat. My kids had fun making the ice cream and both agreed it would be even better with some mini chocolate chips and shredded coconut added to it. This ice cream was super fun and simple to make and my kids thought it was amazing – they ate every single bite.
Peel the ripe bananas and cut them into thick coins. Place on a plate and put into the freezer for 2 hours.
Side Note: I used the over ripe bananas that I had previously placed into the freezer. Trying to peel the frozen banana peels made it more difficult so I recommend peeling and cutting the banana prior to freezing.
Remove the frozen bananas and place into your blender along with a couple of tablespoons of milk. Blend until creamy, making sure to scrape the sides with a rubber spatula. Remove from the blender and place into a bowl.Add the mini chocolate chips and shredded coconut then mix until well combined. Place into the freezer for 30 minutes then scoop and serve. Enjoy!
