Try some simple add-ins, such as:
Chocolate: Add 2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder
Strawberry: Add 1 cup frozen strawberries. To get yummy strawberry chunks, set aside about ¼ cup strawberries to process roughly at the end.
Green Tea: Add 1 ½ teaspoons green tea (matcha) powder
Other add-in ideas: frozen blueberries, nuts, honey, cinnamon, mint + chocolate chips, nutella, any nut butter (peanut, almond, etc.). Feel free to experiment, this one is endlessly customizable!
You can make a bigger batch as long as your food processor is large enough and strong enough, too! This “banana ice cream” also freezes and keeps quite well – just freeze in an airtight container, and scoop and serve when you’re ready to eat like a regular pint of ice cream.
