Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 bananas** mashed
  • 1 tsp gelatin* one packet
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp sugar or erythritol optional
Instructions
  1. Put the mashed bananas in a pot. Set it over medium heat and bring to boil. Let them simmer, while stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. Add the gelatin and stir until it's dissolved.

  2. Set the bananas aside to cool down.

  3. In the meantime whip the egg whites and the sugar until fluffy (5-7 minutes).

  4. Add th vanilla extract to the meringue. Slowly pour the banana mixture into the meringue and whip a few minutes longer, until very airy and fluffy.

  5. Scoop the mixture into a container and put it in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.

  6. Scoop out like a regular ice cream and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*I like using gelatin in this recipe because it helps the ice-cream stay voluminous as it freezes. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. The ice-cream may just end up being not as fluffy as the one with the gelatin.
