Except for the small amount of fat in the bananas, there is hardly any fat in this recipe, and it's very very refreshing! If you don't have an ice cream maker you can spread the mixture into a shallow pan and freeze, just give it a stir with a fork every 45 minutes, once it gets fairly firm, briefly toss it in a blender to break up the ice crystals and then refreeze.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sugar (can use more)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups orange juice (sweetened or unsweetened, fresh OJ is better to use but bottled is fine)


  1. In a saucepan combine sugar and water; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until all the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat, let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until col.
  3. Put the bananas in a blender along with the orange juice and cold sugar/water syrup; blend until smooth.
  4. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers directions or place in a shallow pan.

This was a nice creamy smooth banana sorbet. I only had 2 banana's on hand but seemed to work fine as well.

This is an easy, sweet, nutritious treat. It could actually use less sugar; seemed too sweet for me with a full cup. I prepared it in a blender with the sugar, a cup of ice cubes, the bananas and OJ; blended well; poured into a Ziplock bag; and laid flat in my freezer. After a few hours I massaged the bag. It was totally set and ready to eat after a total of about 4 hours. This is a nice sweet treat for a hot summer day.

Very sweet and creamy! I don`t have an ice cream maker and as you see by the photo you don`t need one. I place the bananas, 1 cup of ice cubes and 1 cup of ice water 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate in a blender. Blended till smooth then froze in a freezer bag. After 20 minutes massaged the bag and refroze. Yummy good!
