Homemade Banana Split Ice Cream!


There is nothing as good as homemade ice cream in the summer!  Actually, I love ice cream year round, but it's one of my biggest weaknesses so I don't indulge often.  When I do, I like to go all out.  This "Banana Split Ice Cream" is one we have been making since I was a child and it's still a crowd pleaser.  Here is what you will need:

4 ripened bananas, mashed
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries, sweetened with 1/2 cup sugar
2 (8 oz.) cans of crushed pineapple
1 (10 oz.) jar of maraschino cherries, drained and quartered
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz.) can of evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well blended.  Pour into the freezer canister of an ice maker and freeze according to the manufacturers directions!   It usually takes 30-40 minutes.  When it stops turning or gets very slow you know it's ready.  Cover the canister with a thick towel or blanket and let it sit to ripen for 30 minutes to an hour!   Serve and enjoy!
