Although I argue that ice cream can be enjoyed all year round, it is in summer when they live their moment of glory. Since childhood I always remember to make homemade ice cream by freezing yogurts or with horchata, lemonade and cocoa milk poles. Now I have a refrigerator machine but I have become almost addicted to preparing easy versions by freezing fruit, and this Creamy banana ice cream with two ingredients It is my favorite.
A few years ago I discovered for the first time how easy it is to prepare instant ice cream by simply freezing and crushing ripe banana. Well, now the "recipe" climbs one more step by adding just another ingredient: butter or peanut butter. A small portion of this energetic product can work wonders in a multitude of elaborations, but try using a variety that is 100% dried fruit, with no more added.

The first thing is to have ripe bananas, that begin to be already touching the limit to eat them naturally, somewhat soft to the touch and with many spots on the skin on the outside. Actually we can let them ripen even more, they will be even sweeter and more fragrant. In the picture you can see that I had bananas from different states in the freezer, it doesn't matter much if they mix.
Peel and slice. Freeze in a freezer bag or an airtight container for at least two hours. After that time, place in the glass of a good blender or use a chopper or food processor. Start crushing at high speed in short periods of time, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking, until it has a slightly creamy texture.
Add the peanut butter or cream at that time and crush everything together, until the desired creamy and homogeneous texture is achieved. It can be served directly or returned to the freezer in an airtight container to solidify a little, between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
