Make your own Banana Ice Cream

We turn to the trusty banana for this quick and easy recipe, which is better with ripe, sweet fruit.

Serves 4

  • 5 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 75ml double cream
  • Butterscotch sauce
  • 50g soft brown sugar
  • 50g butter
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 4tbsp double cream


1. Put the banana slices in a plastic box and freeze.

2. To make the butterscotch sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar and golden syrup, and bring to a simmer. As it’s cooling, stir in the double cream.

3. Once they’re fully frozen, put the banana slices straight into a food processor and then blitz while adding the double cream. Divide between four bowls and top with the butterscotch sauce.
