Instant Banana Ice Cream was part of a 3 course meal he prepared in front of an audience for one of his shows and it seemed fun enough to try at home.
My food mixer is only small, so I chopped 1 banana up into chunks and froze it over night. I then mixed it with a couple of tablespoons of this buttermilk thing and a few drops of vanilla extract. Whizzing it up into a puree was fun but loud and I don’t think my mixer’s gears liked it, it now makes a really nasty screaming noise when it goes round.
Having said that, it really does work, provided you make it a little thick and then add more buttermilk to get to a useful consistency.
I don’t think it needed the extra sugar, but the buttermilk was too acidic for my taste, perhaps it was too cultured for me. I might try swapping it for some really good natural yoghurt or add a bit of cream as well next time.
I served it with some simply poached yorkshire rhubarb, which was very yummy. Definately going to repeat this one.
