Banana Ice Cream With Fresh Banana, Chocolate Sauce And Roasted Cashew nuts + Melon Seeds ..............
This one is the easiest Ice Cream I have ever made. Festive time brings in lots of fruits in the house and I am really not sure what to do with them. Got to keep thinking to get something done which was not done before. Lots of banans were getting ripened quickly before I could think much. I had already finished making Banana Cake. Was just wondering what next to do ?
Opening of the cupboard brought into notice the milkmaid tin that was lying untouched for over a month due to hectic schedule. Just thought why not experiment something with it. Hubby loves Ice Cream, any flavour will do. So I decided to try Banana Ice Cream With Milkmaid. The Ice Cream really turned out great, soft in texture and full of banana flavour.
Preparation of Banana Ice Cream : Peel off the skin of 3 large sized bananas and chop them to pieces. You should have about 3-4 cups of them. Put them in the jar of mixer / blender with one full tin of milkmaid (sweet evaporated milk of 400 gms) and 1 cup of sugar and run the mixer till the mixture is smooth. Now add in 200 ml of thick cream (I added Amul full fat cream) and blend all together till well blended.
Remove and pour in an air tight container and put it in the freezer for 2 hours. Remove and once again beat the mixture well to remove the water crystals if any. Off course there wont be any, but then it will give you a smoother texture. Put it back in the freezer and leave it there overnight. Remains good for more than a week.
For Serving the Banana Ice Cream : While serving remove the Banana Ice Cream and keep it aside for 5-10 minutes. You will then be able to remove it into a nice scoop. Meanwhile peel and cut into rounds one small sized fresh banana. Now put 2 scoops of the Ice Cream in a bowl and add in the banana pieces. Now top it with chocolate sauce and sprinkle some roasted nuts prepared before hand. Serve immediately.
Note: I have topped it with ready made chocolate sauce available in the market with roasted small sized cashew nuts and melon seeds which I prepared in the microwave oven. You can serve the Ice Cream as it is or with any toppings as per individual taste.
