Eggless Banana Ice Cream

Eggless Banana Ice Cream

I had 4 very ripe bananas at home.  Usually I make carrot cake with it, but this time I wanted to try something new.  Then only I remembered watching an episode of Good Eats in Food TV, where Alton Brown prepared banana ice cream without eggs.  So immediately went to the site to get the recipe.  Interestingly I had all the ingredients at hand.  But the only thing was the bananas had to be frozen overnight and thawed, before making the ice cream. 

I have wanted to try this for a long time now, so did not have the patience to do it the next day and also the bananas were very ripe.  So proceeded to make the ice cream and it did come out very well.  Maybe I’ll try the freezing method next time.  So check here for the original recipe.

Eggless Banana Ice Cream A very easy recipe to make eggless banana ice cream at home without an ice cream maker.
  • 4 Ripe Bananas
  • Little OR May Be A Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Banana Ice Cream Ingredients
  1. Peel the bananas and place it in a blender.
  2. Cut Bananas
  3. Blend it alongwith the lemon juice.
  4. Banana Pulp
  5. Add corn syrup and vanilla essence and blend it once again.
  6. Add Corn Syrup
    Add Vanilla Essence
  7. Add the cream and blend it until smooth.
  8. Add Heavy Cream
  9. Transfer the mixture to a container and chill it in the refrigerator until it reaches 40 degrees.
  10. Blended Mix
  11. b>If you don’t have an ice cream maker, check here for detailed instructions)
  12. Even before starting the process of making the ice cream, put a stainless steel container or any other freezer safe container in the freezer until the ice cream mixture is ready.
  13. Frozen Box
  14. Once the mixture is ready transfer it to the frozen container and close it with a lid.
  15. Pour mix into frozen box
  16. After 45 minutes, open the door and check it. As it starts to freeze near the edges beat it up either using a spatula, whisk or stick blender to break any frozen sections. Return to freezer.
  17. Keep checking it periodically and stirring while it freezes until the ice cream is frozen. It will take 2-3 hours to be ready.
  18. Beat the mix again
  19. I started making the ice cream very late in the evening, so I was able to do the above process only twice. I had to put the ice cream in the freezer overnight. The next day evening when I checked the ice cream had frozen rock hard and I was not able to scoop it. So I transferred the container from the freezer to the refrigerator. After about 45 minutes I was able to get the perfect scoop of delicious homemade ice cream.
  20. Scoop the Ice Cream
  21. First scoop of homemade ice cream.
  22. Serve the Ice Cream
  23. I also added some chocolate chips to the ice cream mixture. The ice cream was so DELICIOUS!!!
  24. Banana Ice Cream
If you have an ice cream maker:
  1. Chill mixture in refrigerator until it reaches 40 degrees.
  2. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and process according to manufacture’s instructions.
  3. Place mixture in an airtight container and freeze it for 3 to 6 hours before serving.
My Notes:
  1. A small note to both banana lovers and haters, try this ice cream with just one banana first. The original recipe calls for 6 bananas, but I have used only 4 bananas, even then the flavor of banana is overpowering. The ice cream got mixed reviews. But the happy news is my toddler liked it very much.

    Hi all

    Just a note to say that I substituted corn syrup with the same measure of regular good ol’ honey. It was delicious!
    Also, I had to go for a wedding reception soon after putting the icecream mixture in the freezer and was unable to beat it every 45 minutes. But to my good fortune, the icecream came out perfect with no ice crystals! Pictured here with banana choco chip cake.

    Thank you Madhu for the super simple recipe 🙂

    • Madhuram

      That icecream and cake looks delicious Reema. It’s great to know that honey works well in the recipe. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. Pris

    Hi Madhu…i’m just a starter…do we get corn syrup in India… can we do without it…why do we use it in icecream.thanks

    • Madhuram

      You should be fine without the corn syrup, Pris. When I posted this recipe, I was a starter too, so didn’t know much. I used to follow recipes exactly. Nowadays I make a lot of instant banana ice creams. Chop bananas, store them in ziploc bags and put it in the freezer. Whenever my kid is in mood for ice cream (which is always), I take out some to those and blend it in a mixie/food processor. Sometimes I also add some chocolate milk powder for a banana/cocoa ice cream.

  3. Shubha Iyer

    Madhuram Can i Skip corn syrup in this?

    Hi Shubha, I wouldn’t know until I try it out.

  4. Vijaya

    Hi Madhuram,

    I tried this over the weekend and I was very happy with the result. I froze the banana and then blended it. The taste was overpowering. I had it with a slice of the Whacky Vegan Chocolate Cake…. and wow, it was right out of heaven! Thanks for your recipe.


    You’re welcome Vijaya. Yes I agree the flavor of bananas was quite overpowering.

  5. LAW

    Yeah, Banana Ice Cream is delicious but you definitely don’t need the Corn Syrup. Corn Syrup isn’t good for you, yet companies find a way to put it in everything. A little bit of Vanilla Extract would also be better instead of Essence…a lot of these things have ingredients that we have no idea what they are.

  6. durga

    hi madhu really a nice one…want to try .but don’;t know wht is cream of tartar
    please help me out in this 🙄

    Hi Durga, the original recipe (with corn syrup) does not call for cream of tartar. If you choose to prepare the substitute for corn syrup, find cream of tartar in all grocery stores in the baking aisle next to baking powder.Check here to know more about it.

  7. Deepa

    Hi Madhu I have one question can I omit corn sryup or is there any replacement for that …

    Deepa, please check my answer to the previous comment. I have written the recipe for corn syrup substitute.

  8. Cynthia

    Hi Madhuram,
    Saw your eggless banana ice cream. Looks really yummy. I am planning to try it this weekend. I hope it turns out as good as the picture does. One hitch, though. I can’t lay my hands on corn syrup. Is there anything I can use as a substitute.

    Thanks Cynthia. I googled and found this substitute for corn syrup. I’ve not tried this.

    2 c. white sugar
    3/4 c. water
    1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
    Dash of salt
    Combine all ingredients in a heavy, large pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and put cover on it for 3 minutes to get sugar crystals off the sides of the pan. Uncover and cook until it reaches soft ball stage. Stir often. Cool syrup and store in a covered container at room temperature. It will keep for about 2 months. Makes almost 2 cups.
