I wanted ice cream one night but my ice cream maker was broken and this is what I came up with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put bananas in bowl and add lemon juice (this prevents the bananas from getting brown).
  2. Add sugar and mix.
  3. Add milk and yogurt and mix.
  4. Freeze until solid.
  5. Defrost mixture just enough to where you can get it out of the bowl and break it into pieces.
  6. Put the pieces in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  7. Mixture should come out like soft serve.
  8. You can not store this ice cream.

I made this the last night, and i processed it today. I was surprized that you can make icecream without cream. This was really good. Wen I processed it i added some more yogurt to loosen it up.

My son made this when he wanted ice cream. He was so proud of himself! I think he over defrosted this the next day. As it came out like a milk shake. But that was still find, as it tasted good.
