Instructions:

Freeze the bananas:

  • Slice the ripe bananas and place them on a parchment-lined tray or plate.
  • Freeze the banana slices for at least 2-3 hours or until they are completely frozen.

Blend ingredients:

  • In a blender or food processor, combine the frozen banana slices, coconut milk, maple syrup (or honey), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.

Taste and adjust:

  • Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more maple syrup or honey. Blend again to combine.

Chill:

  • Transfer the mixture to a container with a lid and place it in the freezer for an additional 2-4 hours or until the ice cream reaches your desired consistency. This step allows the ice cream to firm up.
