Banana Ice Cream
We got an ice-cream maker for our wedding. Just a reminder, that was June 11, 2011. Two years ago.
I just opened it the day before yesterday.
Whatever. We've been busy.
What an amazing, fluffy world I've been missing out on.
I feel like I thought it would be hard. Ice cream salt. Churning for hours on end. I guess I was thinking about when my dad would make homemade ice-cream back in the day.
But enter: the modern day ice cream maker. Who doesn't love a good time-saver?
You freeze the drum overnight. You refrigerate the mixture 1-2 hours. You churn for 15-20 minutes.
Our first batch we decided to keep it simple: banana.
Two bananas. 2% milk, (instead of the whole milk it called for) half and half (instead of heavy cream) and a little bit of real maple syrup (instead of white sugar). Oh, and a pinch of sea salt.
So simple and fresh. Banana ice-cream for breakfast? Mayyyyybe.
Next flavors to try: double stuffed Oreo, peppermint, Mexican chocolate, almond...
Any fun, flavor suggestions?
