coffee-oreo banana ice-cream
other day while I was surfing the net, I came across an ice-cream recipe with
literally and practically no cream and milk. The ingredients that the recipe
required were lying in my kitchen, so I thought to give the recipe a try.
the name suggests the recipe required banana, coffee and oreo biscuits. It was
super quick and surprisingly easy.
a weekend, when I generally I try new things, the level of easiness of this
recipe allowed me to try it on a weekday. It just required one little
preparation; to freeze the over-ripened bananas a day before.So on Thursday evening, after coming back
from work, I gathered the ingredients in one place. First, I crushed the oreo
biscuits and coffee powder in a mixer. The whiff of the grounded coffee oreo
mix was simply amazing. Then I added the peeled frozen bananas to the mix and
turned the mixer’s knob in full throttle. To not exhaust the mixer, I used it
in intervals till the mixture was smooth.
I poured this smooth paste like mix in a bowl and kept it in the freezer. After
an hour I found my coffee oreo banana ice-cream ready. All I needed to do after
that was scoop it out and garnish it with crushed almonds.
It is this easy :D
my husband found it too bananaish (lol it was a banana ice-cream after
all dear!) my father-in-law found the taste to be new and different. My
sister-in-law, mother-in-law and I liked it a lot.
is definitely a must try for all the banana lovers and even if you don’t like
bananas you might not mind eating them in form of this yummy home-made ice-cream.
how to get your own scoop of coffee oreo banana ice-cream
Ingredients(for two scoops)
peeled over-ripe bananas
tbsp coffee powder . crushed almonds
the bananas for a day. The next day crush the oreo biscuits and coffee powder
together. Add the peeled frozen bananas to it and grind the mix properly in the
mixer till it forms a smooth paste. Use the mixer in small intervals. Once a
smooth paste is formed, pour this mix in a bowl and freeze for an hour or two. Take
it out of the freezer a few minutes before serving. Scoop it out, throw in some
crushed almonds and serve!
You can aid the mixing by adding a spoonfull of milk, though I did not use any.
You can increase or decrease the number of oreo biscuits as per your liking. The
original recipe used 2 oreo biscuits; however I used 5 to get a more chocolaty
taste. If you use 2-3 biscuits substitute the remaining 3 in this recipe with a
table spoon of sugar to adjust the sweetness. You can also use cashews and
walnuts to garnish.
