Did you know that straciatella is different from chocolate chip? There is sort of an art to making straciatella ice cream (or in this case, nice cream using bananas!). Instead of adding chocolate pieces to it, you slowly drizzle melted chocolate that gets frozen in pieces or swirls inside of the turning ice cream. It is super delicious!
All you need to make straciatella nice cream is: frozen bananas and chocolate chips. I use my Thermomix® TM6 to make it, because the motor is so powerful and my nice creams come out creamy without being melted and drippy every time!
Serve your nice cream right away for best results.
Straciatella Nice Cream
- 2 small bananas, sliced and frozen
- 2 tbsp chocolate chips
- Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave 20 seconds at a time until you can stir with a spoon and it is melted.
- Add the bananas to a Thermomix® mixing bowl (or food processor/blender) and turn on speed 8 for 10 seconds.
- Scrape down with a spatula, then turn on speed 4 for 1 minute. At about 30 seconds, begin drizzling the melted chocolate into the mixing bowl while it is mixing.
