Banana Blackberry Home-made No-churn Ice Cream

A week before I made this, I chopped a couple of bananas and packed into the freezer to try the one ingredient ice cream. Then I forgot. Totally. A box of blackberries that I kept saving to make muffins was not destined for it either. When it came down to the choice of muffins or smoothies, he chose smoothies, but I went a level up and decided to make the ice cream!

While processing the blackberries to make ice cream, I remembered the frozen banana!! Sheesh, should have made that instead! I knew if not today, I am going to forget the bananas again. So off went the frozen banana chunks along with the blackberry in the processor! Now it takes a wee bit more time as it is frozen bananas. When I tasted the mixture, it was YUM but it left a slightly bitter after taste. But that is normal and don't need to increase sugar or condensed milk, just splash some cardamom powder and you are good to go.

Yields: 4 large scoops

Now, this can be made with any berry combination as banana goes with.. all? everything? And if not a fan of cardamom, then add some cinnamon or I think even mint goes well... anything that can layer flavours to get past that light after-taste.
