For this quick recipe we’ll need all of the ingredients ready to go: Half & half cream, bananas, walnut pieces, sugar, brown sugar, whipping cream and vanilla extract.
Mash the bananas to a chunky liquid form with a fork or masher. Set aside.
Crush the walnut pieces so they are smaller and easier to scoop and eat. An easy method is to place the nuts in a plastic bag with a closure. Remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Take a rolling pin and roll over the nuts in the bag…back and forth…side to side.
When you’re done rolling over the nuts you will still have the same amount in a perfect size.
In a large bowl or sauce pan combine the half & half, sugar and brown sugar. Stir until the sugars have completely dissolved.
Stir in the bananas and nuts.
Finally, add the whipping cream and vanilla extract. Stir it in thoroughly. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the ice cream maker is done, you’re ready to pour the ice cream into a freezer container. Freeze overnight or until firm, about 10 hours.
