Gluten free Banana Ice cream

You may wonder why we have to label ice cream “gluten free”.  Well isn’t it just cream? Well no it’s not.  There’s more and more weird ingredients being added into everything we eat, and chances are we don’t have a clue what they are let alone how to say them.  Well anyway this is old fashioned ice cream,  but with my ingredient of the week……Bananas!!

Im not gonna lie it’s a bit of an involved process starting off with making the custard at the stove, which is the longest part, but from there it’s smooth sailing.  The taste is worth it, please try 🙂





6 Bananas

2 tbs of Orange juice

small pinch of salt

3 egg yolks

1 cup Caster sugar

1 cup whole milk

1 cup Cream ( I used thickened)

1tbs vanilla extract


How To Do It:

Step 1 Make the Custard: whisk up the egg yolks with the sugar then add the milk.  Set as a double boiler.  I used a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.  Stir and stir and stir until it is thick enough to coat the back of you spoon.  Once thick place in fridge to cool.

Step 2: whisk the cream with the vanilla.  Don’t go to hard peaks only lightly beat it.

Step 3: mash your Bananas with the OJ and salt.

Ok ya still with me?  Now combine the bananas with the cream mixture and stir well,  then add in the cooled custard.  Stir well then transfer to a shallow stainless steel dish and place in the freezer, remembering to stir every now and then.  Basically just don’t let it set hard without stirring it.  Hope you really enjoy this and think it’s well worth the effort as I do…..enjoy 🙂
