3-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream

3 Ingredient Banana Ice Cream
It’s in the 80s here, and we didn’t have any ice cream. Gasp! I decided to take matters into my own hands and make some myself. Technically, this banana ice cream isn’t real ice cream. It’s mashed bananas, marshmallows and a splash of milk. But if you love bananas, you’ll love this frozen treat.

It’s super simple to make. First, cut three bananas up into large chunks. Cover them with plastic wrap, and put them in the freezer for about 3 hours.

Next, put the chopped bananas, marshmallows and a couple splashes of milk into the blender a little bit at a time. I used 10 regular-sized marshmallows total, but you could use about 1 cup of mini marshmallows, too. Just leave them out of the blender and mix them in after your bananas are pulsed.

If marshmallows aren’t your thing, add some nuts… or chocolate chips… or vanilla cookies. Some peanut butter would be tasty, too. You can’t go wrong, really.

Once everything is mixed up, put it in the freezer (again, covered with plastic wrap) for an additional 2-3 hours.

Serve with chocolate syrup. YUM!
