Coffee & Oreo Banana Ice cream

Banana Ice cream, yet again?

Okay, it’s delicious, and is different from the usual, so it’s here. With my previous posts on frozen banana ice creams, this one may draw similarities, but then its healthy, super quick and delicious. Needless to say, I make this cheat whipped-frozen-bananas or so-called-banana ice cream so often that I can’t tell you how much we enjoy it. Even my little one is sold into believing that this is an ice cream she should earn and doesn’t care when I present it in different forms, at times as pops, sometimes as slices, or even assorted like this one I have today. So it’s not just bananas always you see, but a way to get the bananas into her. An attempt to be a smarter mom to a witty kid! :D


This was not really an ice cream meant for my toddler, but a dessert made for the two of us to save the over ripe bananas. My daughter did enjoy a couple of scoops though and I didn’t mind the fact that she loved the mélange of coffee, chocolate cookies and bananas, a unique one to her inquisitive taste buds.


For me though, coffee is not really a drink I enjoy much, but I simply adore it in desserts, or anything cold. Call it a day with friends and I am in for a cold coffee any time. Likewise, a coffee walnut cake makes a perfectly celebratory dessert and a coffee ice cream is utterly sinful. And coffee makes the most beautiful match when paired with chocolate, converting anything to delicious. So it does justice to this ice cream too. Coffee, chocolate cookies and frozen bananas blitzed to a delicious concoction and frozen for an hour or two will render a delicious scoop of ice cream you will crave for more. Bananas are optional and render a creamy texture to this healthy ice cream. Replace with whipped cream or custard for a more decadent treat. Crushed Oreos give a nice chocolatey twist and a dash of roasted almonds bring in an element of nutty crunch.


Coffee and Oreo Banana Ice cream

INGREDIENTS

2-3 overripe bananas, frozen
1 tsp. instant coffee powder
2 oreo biscuits, crushed roughly
1 tbsp. sugar (or as preferred to your taste)
1 tbsp. roasted almonds

DIRECTIONS

Blitz the frozen bananas, oreo biscuits along with a teaspoon of instant coffee powder in a food processor. Add sugar to taste, and a tablespoon of milk to aid churning in case the bananas are too solid. Pause for a minute or two and blitz again until everything incorporates into a smooth paste and resembles the texture of an ice cream. Transfer the ice cream into a freezer proof container, crush an oreo biscuit into the ice cream along with chopped roasted almonds and place it in the freezer until you are ready to serve. To serve, remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to sit on counter for 5 minutes. Scoop out a dollop and serve with topping of additional crushed oreos and roasted almonds.
