I wonder if raisins would work instead of figs...
I've been meaning to try frozen banana ice cream all week but my mom adores the banana bread I make, I usually end up making it for her every other day, so it kinda discouraging because I sleep knowing I have banana bread to wake up to...
But I'll definitely be trying some tomorrow, I can't wait any longer.

You mean you can freeze it overnight and it's not hard as a rock?

IDK to be honest...all of my icecream I have been trying to make have been freezing over night. I think the problem is that I blend everything together then I put it in the freezer. I think I just need to freeze the bananas. then blend everything, and I will have banana icecreams that is not solid as a rock

Well as long as you admit I'm right. ;)

You're not right about anything. Fats are not essential to get the the creamy texture like you wrote. It might be needed if you're weak and can't finnish your ice cream in one sitting but that's another discussion for another thread.

It's ok, you can say it. I'm ridiculously smarter than you when it comes to making ice cream. There's no shame in that.

I used to make it with chocolate brown rice protein. I didn't measure anything though so I don't have a 'recipe' per se. I would take ~2 frozen bananas, a few spoonfuls of the protein powder, and I would usually add a bit of pb. Then process it up in the food processor. I found this worked well with that particular brand (Nutribiotic) but once I switched to a cheaper brand it didn't taste nearly as good.
