Banana Nut Ice Cream

Last week I made chocolate ice cream for the boys. This week I'm making my favorite, banana nut. Whatever you do make sure you use very ripe bananas, it makes all the difference in the world!
What you need:
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 over ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
What you do:
Beat eggs for two minutes.

Add sugar to eggs and beat for an additional minute.

Slowly add cream, milk and vanilla to mixture.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions.

Add  lemon juice to bananas and mash together. Set mixture in freezer until needed.

 Place nuts in freezer as well.

After the ice cream stiffens, add the bananas & nuts. Let it mix in the ice cream maker for a minute.

Put all this yummy goodness in a freezer safe container.
Me and ice cream.  Best friends forever.
