2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream Failure...Again!

I noticed the "2 ingredient Banana Ice Cream" BuzzFeed video going around and it reminded me of when I tried it back in 2011. I didn't think it was bad, but the kids thought differently and their reactions were hilarious. If you're wanting to try it, I think the way to go is to add other fruit and make it sorbet-ish. (I can't seem to get the video working. Oops.)

My original post from September 2011

A long time ago (June) I tried to dupe the kids. They called me out. Big time. 

Basically you cut up a bunch of bananas, freeze them, then use a food processor to chop them up, add whatever flavoring you'd like and it creates a pseudo-ice cream. I added peanut butter and cocoa powder and I thought it wasn't bad at all. I was actually surprised how good it tasted.

I told the kids to "come try this". I never said it was ice cream. These pictures were not staged. I pushed the bowls in front of them, waited, and snapped away at their first impressions.

(Look how excited Vaughn is here.)

I like how she gives it another try.

Poor Vaughnie. She loves, loves, loves ice cream. I think she had her hopes up because it looked so much like ice cream. Clearly, she was crushed. 

(I wonder if it would have been better if I added frozen berries to it - like a pseudo sorbet? Hmmm...)

  1. Too cute. Vaughn's second try "willing it to be ice cream" is awesome. Thanks for sharing.
