There are a ton of flavors you can add to your banana ice cream. Pictured above is with chickpea cookie dough chunks. Other delicious version of ice cream made nice cream-style:

This recipe is designed for narrow-bodied, low-profile containers, like the 48-oz container for Ascent or the one that comes with the E310). If you’re using a low-profile, 64-ounce container (like the one that comes with Ascent Series Vitamix machines), you’ll need to triple the recipe.

Re-freezing works okay, but isn't nearly as good as enjoying it fresh. A blended, frozen banana isn't as good as a re-frozen bunch of blended, frozen banana. Trust us.

If you are not serving immediately (or are making a triple batch), use the "pre-portion" technique. Scoop it, and freeze it in the dish you plan to serve it in or in a cupcake pan. Let thaw for 5 minutes before serving.
