Paleo/Primal Ice Cream w/o the Cream

While I am not one to eat bananas due to their high fructose content and that I am looking to loose weight, this does look very good and a great way to eat a Paleo- and Primal-friendly treat. Especially since my wife's recent journey into a Paleo-friendly ice cream utilizing coconut milk and almond milk did not turn out so well; It froze too quickly along the sides of the ice cream maker, meaning we just froze it, turning it into more of a shaved-ice sort of thing rather than a creamy sort of thing. Still good, but nothing that would make you think of ice cream.

Step-by-Step Instructions for One-Ingredient Ice Cream | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn:

"That mystery ingredient, of course, is banana! The smidgen of fat in bananas makes a magic trick when they are frozen and blended up. They turn creamy instead of crumbly, with a smooth texture any home ice cream chef would love to have in their frozen treats.

The major tips can be summed up as:
• Peel your bananas first.
• Cut them into small pieces.
• Freeze for just 1-2 hours on a plate.
• Blend, blend, blend - scraping down the bowl when they stick.
• Enjoy the magic moment when they turn into ice cream!"

I want to know what kind of uber blenders these people use for frozen bananas; the one time i tried, the blades wouldn't even turn. :/

I don't know, but I am all for the "try, try again" method.
