This super easy 3 ingredient banana and berry ice cream is also no-churn. And one of the best parts? It can be made almost entirely alone by a child… or at the very least with some adult supervision. Now, I’m not suggesting that I let my toddler do this on her own. Far from it. But it was her first time helping me make something in the kitchen and I must say that it turned out very well.
I will also admit that I was originally going to use strawberries for this but they weren’t quite thawed enough when I wanted to create the dessert. Fortunately we had blueberries in the freezer as well, so I think that this could work with any frozen berry.
After cutting up the banana into bite sized pieces, I put them in the blender. Squeaker helped by adding blueberries:
She wasn’t too thrilled with how cold it was, but she got over it pretty quickly. Of course she also had to try a blueberry and once she got that out of the way, she helped me pour them into the blender.
Our next ingredient was half the 8oz container of thawed cool whip. Squeaker helped me both scoop and put this into the blender. But only after she tasted the cool whip. And yes, of course, we used a new spoon from that point on.
Once the mixture was blended together, I added a little bit more blueberries for texture and then spooned the mixture into a freezer safe container. I covered that and then put it in the freezer for about two hours.
The consistency after that reminded me very much of a soft serve frozen yogurt.
We tried a little bit of it just so we could see what it tasted like and it reminded me of a blueberry yogurt. I think that Sweet B would very much enjoy this because of the combination of blueberries and bananas.
After leaving the ice cream in the freezer, we had some more of it after dinner and the flavor was still very much delicious and the texture was great.
What I liked most about this was how diverse this could be, just by changing up the berry that was used.
