Banana Ice Cream Recipe
It only takes about ten minutes to make your own banana ice cream at home. With just a few simple ingredients that can be found in most pantries and kitchens, namely whipped cream, bananas, lemon juice, sugar, and salt, you can make a delicious homemade ice cream and treat yourself, family and guests to a unique and lovely dessert. This recipe does not require for you to use an ice cream maker, view some related cooking recipe videos. While it is not as smooth and fine as commercial varieties, it is still completely flavorful and luscious. Pass the ingredients through a fine sieve to make sure it freezes as smoothly as possible.
One trick to make the ice cream smoother and creamier is to stir the mixture after it has frozen for an hour and to do this a couple of times during the process of freezing. This will dissolve the sugar crystals that form, which can make the ice cream grainy. It is also important to whip the cream before adding it to the mixture when making ice cream. It should be as light and as fluffy as possible. Use a hand mixer or electric blender to whip the cream until it foams and becomes puffy. This will help create a light and creamy ice cream.
For best results, use freshly squeezed lemon juice. To get the most juice out of a lemon, it is best to use a citrus juicer. Electric juicers are also ideal and can extract the juice efficiently. Roll the lemon using your palm over the top of the counter a few times before squeezing to release its flavor and loosen the juices. It is best to juice the lemons while it is at room temperature rather than when it is chilled or just came out of the refrigerator. You can warm it up for 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave to increase its temperature and extract more juice from it.
