Italian Banana Dream

This is a dense very flavourful Italian ice cream. This one is so good it might create a new banana growing industry in Italy. The secret to this recipe is to use very ripe bananas. If they are slightly over-ripe, that is even better.


4 bananas
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 egg yolks *
can sweetened condensed milk
1 cups sugar
1 pt whipping cream
pt whole milk
teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon vanilla


Crush bananas and add lemon juice and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, sugar, whipping cream and whole milk. Then add salt and vanilla extract. Freeze this mix in an ice cream freezer and when thick add the prepared bananas and continue to freeze. This is best when served very cold. It has extraordinary flavour and "mouthfeel".

*If you are concerned about the possibility of Salmonella from uncooked eggs, substitute an equivalent amount of Egg Beaters.
