The flavor & richness of this ice cream is definitely good. However, this recipe is neither quick nor easy!! This recipe, literally took about 12 hours to execute and freeze. The mixture would not thicken in my ice cream maker. I had to place the makers frozen container back into the freezer with the mixture still in it. While the vanilla ice cream base was rich, smooth, and creamy, the drawback is that when you had fresh mashed ripe bananas it gives the ice cream an icy consistency. This recipe also uses more containers than it should... i.e. one bowl for the base mix, one for the mashed bananas, one pot for the blending, and one to beat the eggs. It just wasn't a good first recipe to start with, with a new ice cream maker (but not my first). Had I not had to cook anything, and could have just thrown all the ingredients into one container or bowl then I would have given it a 5 star rating. still, it's a good recipe for the more seasoned aficionado if ice cream making.

This, in my opinion, is exactly what banana ice cream should be. The only things I changed were the number of egg yolks and the method of cooking. I used 3 eggs instead of 2, since that's where I start all my ice cream bases. When it came to cooking and adding the egg yolks I pulled out all the little white things (i call them the umbilical cords of the egg yolk), wisk them until they're frothy, and then pour the whole heated concoctiom into the egg yolks about a third at a time wisking it continuously and as fast as possible. I've never had a problem with egg yolks or needed to strain them out. Other than that I followed the recipe to a t and it was great. Everyone loved it! I will be making this much more! Oh, and just a tip, this overflowed my 1.5 quart ice cream maker big time. So be careful! Read More

One of the tastiest banana ice creams I've ever tasted. I subbed Cinnamon Grahm Crackers for the vanilla wafers and the whole family begs me to make it again & again! The ingredients need to be increased by 1/2 to make a full (almost) 1/2 Gallon container. Read More

The flavor of this ice cream is pretty much perfection but the consistency is not. I followed the recipe exactly and it just did not set up the way it should have. Hoping it was a fluke and plan on trying this again. EDIT: I ended up taking the super-hard ice cream out of the freezer and defrosting it until it was just barely liquidy. I added 1/2 C heavy cream and added the mixture back to the ice cream maker until it was just back to soft serve consistency, then re-froze it. Perfect consistency! Next time I make it I will just up the cream from the start. Read More
