Infused Banana Ice Cream

Infused Banana Ice Cream with chocolate

A great way to get a lot of banana flavour is to infuse very ripe bananas with the milk and cream. I also added melted chocolate at the end of churning because who doesn’t like chocolate. This recipe is inspired by “Hello my name is Ice Cream” by Dana Cree.

Instructions

Use 3-4 very very ripe bananas.
Heat the milk, cream and sucrose until boiling.
Infuse with bananas and store in fridge for 2-24 hours. The longer the more flavour you will get.
Strain bananas.
Ok now your mix will have lost some weight. The cream+milk+sucrose should weigh 830g, your mix now probably weighs around 700g.
Add back cream and milk (50/50) for the weight lost in the infusion. (approx 100-150g)
Combine all other dry ingredients and mix well.
Start heating the mix in a pot.
Whisk in the dry ingredients.
Add the egg yolks and whisk to combine.
Slowly heat to 83C (181F) while stirring.
Transfer to a ziplock bag and chill in cold water or ice water.
Add the vanilla extract (can also be added just before churning)
Age in fridge for at least 4 hours or best overnight.
Run in ice cream machine.

If adding chocolate
Melt 100g dark chocolate with 1 tsp neutral coconut oil. (I melt in the microwave)
When the ice cream is almost done, pour in the chocolate in a fine drizzle.
