Creamy Banana Berry Ice Cream


This was so creamy and delicious! It was a perfect treat for summer and so yummy with all the fresh summer fruit.

3 ripe bananas
Juice of 3 oranges
Juice of 3 lemons
5-6 cups fresh strawberries or raspberries, clean and hulled
3 cups of sugar
4 cups heavy cream
2 cups whole milk
Ice
Rock Salt

Place first 5 ingredients in bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade (or use blender and blend the bananas and orange juice; then blend the lemon juice, strawberries and sugar then combine in a bowl). If you like chunks of fruit in your ice cream, process less, if not blend/process until smooth. If using raspberries, leave whole and do not process.

Add cream slowly, then add milk. Pour mixture into a 6 quart ice cream maker and freeze according to directions. Makes 1 gallon.

When the ice cream maker goes off, it will look like fluffy mashed potatoes. To make hard packed ice cream, freeze it for 2-3 hrs. minimum, but overnight if you can wait. :)

*Next time we think we'll add a dash of vanilla and maybe cut out 1/2 cup of sugar. Also, we have a 4 quart ice cream maker and when pouring this into the container, it came to just under the "fill to this line" mark. I wouldn't expect this to fill a 6 quart ice cream maker.
