30 Bananas a Day!

My poor old blender called it quits today, it just couldn't bare to blend another batch of banana ice cream for me I guess.

In lieu of buying a vita mix, anyone know of any affordable blenders that can make really good banana ice cream without overheating and breaking like my old one did?

Me too. Blend tec is great. That's all I have and it works perfectly.

Blendtec FTW!

Can you guys share your tips on how to make really thick banana ice cream in the blendtec? I have heard some people complaining that blendtec leaves chunks and the vitamix doesnt. Any truth to this?

But a Yonanas for 50 bucks, get super thick ice cream, and save the wear on a blender.  I haven't actually tried it, but it looks good.

I think the Yonanas machine looks interesting, I found out about it last week because on one of my bananas was a Yonanas sticker. I was curious so I checked out the website. Oh- the funny part though is they say "freeze over-ripe bananas," but the ones she used were perfectly ripened and spotted and freckled. Probably because most people assume bananas are ripe once they're no longer green.

If you cannot afford a vita mix, buy the Yonana Machine. It is 50 bucks at Target. I have one. It makes very creamy banana ice cream. You can also run other fruit like mango, pineapple. It is really good. I find it,does best when the frozen fruit just starts to soften. In fact, I have a vita mix, and I still use the banana machine .

My blender. That's the blender I have in my dorm and I've made banana ice cream with it twice so far. Both times it has come out just fine. Basically I throw in about 2 or 3 bananas worth of frozen banana slices, pulse with the crush button and keep pushing the chunks down toward the blade with a little plastic thing I have (when the blades are no longer spinning, of course), and then put it on the lowest speed and if a convection current starts I let it run until it looks pretty smooth. You pretty much just have to play with those two settings along with mixing the blended parts with the less blended parts and you'll have ice cream in a few minutes. It is easiest to do with smaller amounts of banana at a time, because the swirling won't happen if the geometry isn't right, but I have done it with 5 bananas before, it just takes more time, mixing/pushing, and you may have to be okay with a few banana chunks (who can be upset with a few small chunks of banana though?). 

I can't comment on how long this blender will last, but I've done fine with it for several months of fairly light use. It's pretty darn cheap too.
