  1. I love banana swirl ice cream! This is the very first “ice cream” recipe that I made after having a child. I wanted to make sure that I offer a healthier alternative to a store-bought ice cream. I’ve since tried other frozen fruit combination but bananas are the staple in our ice cream making. 🙂
