Thermomix Chocolate Banana Ice Cream
A delicious and super healthy chocolate ice cream. It's literally bananas that it's so good and you can't taste the banana at all
- 1 frozen banana per person. To freeze your bananas best when they’re ripe: peel and break each into 3-4 chunks. Calculate 1 banana per person and that way you know to get 3 chunks per person. The maximum I have done has been 6-7 frozen bananas (690 g of frozen bananas)
- 1 heaped tablespoon of cocoa powder or raw cacao powder per banana i.e. for every 3-4 chunks of banana you add 1 tablespoon
- 1 tablespoon rose water per banana optional. No, it doesn’t taste like Turkish Delight (I do not like Turkish delight, in fact, but love it in this ice cream). My favourite to use is Steenbergs
Place the bananas (try to snap the chunks away from each other so that you can place them around the blades) and cocoa powder in the bowl: 2 seconds on Turbo. Scrape down
Add the rose water if using: 30 seconds speed 10. Scrape down
30 seconds speed 10. Scrape down
30 seconds speed 10. Scrape down.
30 seconds speed 10. Scrape down.The amount of times you need to do bursts of 30 seconds will depend on contents. Always do the 2 seconds on Turbo then bursts of 30 seconds on speed 10, scraping down in between until it looks like in this photo (bear in mind that with smaller amounts you won't get quite this look).
Then either eat as a bit of a soft serve or transfer to tubs in the freezer for a few hours (or days) for more of an ice cream consistency that you can scoop out.
My favourite Rose Water is by Steenbergs. I've tried the Nielsen Massey Rose Water but they seem to be made very differently and it doesn't work as well. Stick to Steenbergs or something produced without alcohols, which seems to be the biggest difference between my favourite Steenbergs and the Nielsen Massey (which has propylene glycol and ethanol).
I sometimes freeze in individual containers too, it works great.
I make it in my Thermomix but you should be able to do it in a powerful blender too
