If you’ve been on a food blog or Pinterest in the last year, you’ve probably seen the very popular one-ingredient ice cream made from frozen bananas. Also known as “nice cream,” I gave it a green twist by adding matcha and a little sweetened condensed milk.
First, let me say that it tastes NOTHING like ice cream. It tastes like a sweetened banana with matcha that has the consistency of ice cream. (Which is a good thing if you like bananas and matcha.) Fool me once with that mashed cauliflower that they swear tastes like mashed potatoes but tastes exactly like mashed cauliflower.
It was a lot of fun watching the frozen bananas turn into what looks like soft serve ice cream. You can eat it as soon as everything is well blended, but I refroze for an hour and a half to harden it up a bit.
MATCHA (GREEN TEA) BANANA “ICE CREAM”
Makes 2 servings
Cut bananas into little small pieces and freeze for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Using a food processor, blend until it looks like mashed potatoes. Add matcha and sweetened condensed milk and blend until it looks like soft serve ice cream.
Can be eaten as is, or can be transferred to a container and frozen again for at least an hour and a half for a harder consistency.
