5 Ingredient Cinnamon Banana Ice Cream

I frequently crave ice-cream probably because one of my earliest memories was that of going to get ice cream with my family, so I learned early on ice cream made my world a better place.  It always took me forever to decide which flavor I wanted, but it never changed for the longest time “orange sherbet”.  I’ve long since branched out into the ever multiplying rainbow of  flavors although I still have a difficult time choosing a flavor, not because I’m picky but because I like so many of them.

I have a favorite ice-cream shop that I like called the “Marble Slab”, they have some of the most amazing ice-cream there is.  One of the flavor combos I like there is cinnamon ice cream with a banana mixed in and caramel on top..heavenly! My palate almost never tires of cinnamon or banana flavors with cookies, cakes, bread, candy, and now ice-cream.  Not sure what it is about these two flavors that tantalizes my taste buds but I’m just glad it does.  I set out to re-produce the ice cream I crave and I think it turned out pretty darn good.  The recipe is for a small counter top ice cream maker not the 1/2 gallon size most of us are familiar with that uses ice and rock salt.  If you don’t have one of these ice cream makers, I suggest you put your order in for some up coming holiday or birthday celebration because its so wonderful to have handy.  This ice-cream can’t get anymore natural unless it came from the cow all made up hm…wouldn’t that be a nice thought 🙂 .  The recipe calls for sugar, eggs, cream, a banana, and a splash of  real vanilla, there’s no cooking just mixing with a hand held mixer, pour then turn on the “on button” and your good to go.  What are you waiting for let’s make some ice cream!

5 Ingredient Cinnamon Banana Ice Cream


1 ripe mashed banana
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups whipping cream
dash of vanilla


Step 1: Assemble the ice cream maker except leave the frozen bowl in the freezer until the mixture is ready to pour.

Step 2: Mash one ripe banana in small bowl.

Step 3: Beat 2 eggs on high until light in color, turn speed down to medium speed then slowly add the 1 cup of sugar while beating.

Step 4: When the sugar is all incorporated turn the mixer to low and add the cream and banana and the dash of vanilla.

Step 5: Take out the freezer bowl and pour the cream mixture into the ice cream making bowl and attach to the ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s directions.

Step 6: When ice cream is done either because the mixer stopped or slowed considerably turn off machine and using a rubber spatula scrap out into another freezer safe plastic bowl with a lid and freeze for several hours or over night.

Garnish with caramel, dried bananas and or chocolate chips!

Delicious and so easy to make too. We make ice cream all through the warm CA weather, which is a good portion of the year. This recipe will be added to our repertoire. 🙂

I don't put cinnamon and bananas together very often but you certainly make a good case for it. This ice cream looks fantastic with both.
