One Ingredient Banana Ice-Cream

4 bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen (slice before freezing)

1⁄2 tablespoon skim milk (only if need it)

1. Peel the bananas and slice them thickly.

2. Lay them on a plate and freeze until solid, around 2 hours.

3. Put them in the blender or food processor and turn the machine on to blend them. At first they will want to spin around and stay icy, but keep at it, stopping the machine and using the wooden spoon to loosen the mixture if it stops moving. At some point, it will suddenly go creamy and custardy, like soft-serve ice cream—but if it doesn’t, add a little milk and blend until it does.

4. Serve right away or store in the freezer in a lidded container.
