When I made this roasted banana ice cream, from David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop, I couldn't resist his suggestion to make banana splits with the banana ice cream. Banana ice cream, hot fudge and homemade whipped cream sounded like a delicious combination - and it didn't disappoint!
The banana ice cream gets its texture from the bananas versus heavy cream (which isn't even added in this recipe). There's really not even much added sugar. The bananas do all the work in this recipe - who knew they were such a capable fruit?
We all really liked the ice cream, but the addition of the hot fudge sent it over the top. If I were to make it again, I'd make sure to have a big vat of hot fudge at the ready. And the addition of the whipped cream was like icing on the cake.
