Banana pudding ice cream is one of those things that so many blogs have and many a blogger uses instant pudding mix to create their version of the same thing. Not me!

When I make pudding, I do it the old-fashioned way: with eggs! And this recipe is no different.

Using raw eggs makes the ice cream extra creamy and slower to melt once you've scooped it or set it on the counter, so it won't be rock hard when you try it. If you're afraid of salmonella, use pasteurized eggs.

Once you’ve made your ice cream, it will be time to freeze it. Know that a metal container will freeze the ice cream faster and than a glass pan or dish. If you will be making ice cream often consider investing in a set of insulated ice cream tubs or containers. Or be like me and use paper containers like these for individual servings. Simply cover with plastic wrap or wax paper and secure with a rubber band.

No ice cream maker? No problem! This decadent ice cream is an easy and fun way to cure your ice cream cravings.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons Adam's vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vanilla wafer cookies, crushed
  • 1 cup bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup bananas, mashed


  1. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat eggs until foamy. Add in sugar until mixture is thickened.
  2. Add heavy cream and vanilla; beat until soft peaks form.
  3. With the mixer on, add frozen banana slices and vanilla wafer cookie crumbs. Once combined, remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the mashed bananas.
  4. Pour the mixture into a metallic baking or loaf pan. Press plastic wrap onto the surface of the ice cream. Cover plastic wrap with aluminum foil. Freeze ice cream for 6 hours or overnight, until completely frozen.
  5. When ready to serve, let ice cream sit at room temperature 10 minutes, then scoop and dish.

Slice and mash the bananas a day ahead. Sprinkle lemon extract or lemon juice over bananas to prevent oxidation (from turning brown)

Chill the mixer bowl and wire whip in the freezer prior to making the ice cream to help keep all ingredients chilled while making the recipe

      1. Your ice cream is the dream. My favorite summer dessert is mascerated strawberries with champagne.

      2. I never had banana as an ice cream. Sounds like a great idea!
