Just a handful of common ingredients is all it takes to make this light and fluffy frosting. It’s super easy and you may already have everything you need on hand.

Ingredients List

  • Ripe Banana (sliced)

Banana: The key to getting that wonderful banana flavor is using a ripe banana. If your banana has a bit of brown on it, then you’re on the right track. As long as you go with a ripe banana, you’re going to love the flavor of your frosting.

Whipped Cream: For this recipe, you can use premade whipped topping or homemade whipped cream. The flavor works wonderfully either way so go with the one you prefer. One note, don’t use that canned spray whipped cream. The texture just doesn’t come out right.
