I know what you’re thinking. Who puts curry in ice cream? Or in something that’s supposed to be sweet? Well, I do! I’m strange and like to make different and unexpected flavor combinations. Banana and curry go really well together, Which isn’t very surprising. If you’re too afraid to try it because of the curry, I would just add either some chocolate sauce or even a little bit of melted peanut butter on top and you’ll have a delicious banana curry ice cream sundae.
Now this ice cream is definitely on the savory side of sweet. There really is nothing to be afraid of! You should always be willing to try something different once in awhile. So give this ice cream a chance and just add some chocolate to it! That way the chocolate will help make the curry flavor less intense.
Above are some products that I personally use and recommend for this recipe and to have for everyday use. I highly recommend starting off with the cuisinart ice cream machine as your first ice cream maker. It’s the cheapest one on amazon and I personally use it and love it! I also suggest getting a reusable ice cream container as well, it’s dishwasher safe and you can use it over and over again!
banana curry ice cream
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 bananas ripe
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- place the milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and bananas into a pot and bring to a boil, whisking to make sure the bananas break apart. in a bowl combine the sugar, curry and egg yolks and mix together. slowly temper the egg yolks by pouring the milk mixture gradually and whisking at the same time. strain the ice cream base through a fine mesh sieve to get rid of any banana particles. cover with cling wrap and place the ice cream base into the fridge overnight to cool and to let the flavor increase. following the manufacturer's instructions of your ice cream machine, turn the base for 20-25 minutes. place the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze overnight to firm up.
