Ice Cream Flavor of the Week: Roasted Banana Ice Cream

Recipe #276

If you love bananas, you will love this ice cream. The intense flavor is brought out by roasting bananas for 40 minutes in the oven with a bit of butter and brown sugar. After roasting, the bananas and the resulting caramel-ly syrup are pureed in a blender with milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. That’s it, easy-peasy!  😛 Even with out eggs, it’s very creamy and smooth.

  1. Roasted. Bananas? Wow, what a concept. Sounds really interesting and possibly fantastic. I’m thinking I NEED that David L. ice cream book. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi that sounds amazing….never would have thunk it. I do have a banana bread recipe that “roasts” the bananas before mixing in the batter along with all the yummy juice. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow…I need to try this recipe……wow….I just bought the Alice Waters book too…but I was using it more of a cool coffee table/aren’t you hip book…now I am motivated to crack it open!

  4. It never ceases to amaze me how the simplest of ingredients can come together to create something so good. This ice cream looks wonderful. I love David Lebovitz’s blog but still haven’t bought any of his books. I’m going to start with this one!

  5. I am kicking myself for having given away my ice cream maker in a fit of moving-related purging… this recipe looks so amazing. I wish I could try it! Coldstone Creamery makes fabulous banana ice cream, but in general, banana (without chunks of other stuff) isn’t a very popular or common ice cream flavor. Wonder why? Your roasted banana one and others have proven to me that bananas + ice cream = heaven.
