Well okay, actually it's 2 ingredients, but the second one is optional, so i cheated a little. It's still stupid-easy and delicious! 

All you need is some bananas and a little bit of sweetness. They call it NICE CREAM. 'Cause it's nana ice cream. And it's nice. And i better stop rambling now and show you the recipe. Let's go bananas! yeah...


3 large ripe bananas
seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean OR 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp agave syrup or coconut blossom sugar (optional)

- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


Peel your bananas first. Cut them into small pieces. Freeze for 1-2 hours on a plate or in a little plastic bag. (Don't make the mistake to freeze them with the skin on, or it'll be impossible to get it off again, and they'll look brown and yucky!) BLEND, BLEND, BLEND - pushing or scraping down the nanas when they stick to the side - until gorgeously smooth and creamy. Enjoy the magic moment when they turn into ice cream! 

You can also add the vanilla for a more authentic vanilla flavour (duh.) or add your preferred sweetener - i didn't though because my super-ripe bananas were already sweet enough. 

Fill your nice cream into a big bowl and scoop away immediately! :)

Oh, and you could also blend up some fruit (berries, soaked dates, mango,...) and pour it over your ice cream! i made some strawberry sauce and it was yummy!
