Vacation Rental Recipes: Two-Ingredient Ice Cream (Video)


Thank you, margarita, for making blenders so common in vacation rentals. You’ve paved the way for all sorts of other minimal-ingredient vacation delights. Case in point: Two-ingredient banana ice cream.

When you’re at a vacation rental, you don’t want the burden of specialized ingredients you’ll only use once, and you simply don’t have the pantry staples you likely depend on at home. But with this two-ingredient ice cream, you can rock a homemade dessert in as long as it takes to freeze fruit.

In fact, you can pare this recipe down to a single ingredient—bananas—if your vacation rental happens to come equipped with a super-powerful blender (think Vitamix). The second ingredient, milk (or coconut milk, yogurt, or water), simply allows the frozen banana pieces to blend more easily.

This video will walk you through the ultra-simple instructions.
