Kids can cook, too! Banana Ice Cream Recipe

Franklin Ziegler

Franklin is 9 years old and has dreamed of being a chef since he was a toddler. At 5 years old, he told us that when he grew up he was going to start a fine dining restaurant/Christmas tree farm and call it, “Wines & Pines”. He really wants to go to JWU Providence, but that is mainly because he also loves geography and likes the fact that Rhode Island is the smallest state. Below is his submission to our blog with photos that he took with his Nintendo DSi. ~Steve

Hi, I'm Franklin Ziegler, son of Steven Ziegler, product expert for the WEBstaurant Store. To prove that adults can’t always be the cooks or the recipe inventors, I made Banana Ice Cream. This happened when I was thinking: People make treats from chocolate coated bananas, but never made Banana Ice Cream.

So I told my mom, "I have an idea...and help me put the lid on the blender." So I worked and worked..then voila! Banana Ice Cream! So remember that you don't have to be an adult to make something delicious. Here's how to make, the one and only, Banana Ice Cream!

Banana Ice Cream Recipe


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Chocolate syrup

How To Make

  • Freeze bananas
  • Put bananas in your blender

Dear Franklin, I liked reading about how you had the idea for this new recipe. That is just what chefs do in their lives and in their work. You are the real deal and have some good experience. I am out of bananas right now, but, next time I shop I will buy enough so that I can try making your recipe. I enjoy reading the Restaurant Supply Blog, written by your Dad. All the best to you, Franklin. Ruth, from Tallahassee, FL PS The name for the restaurant of your dreams sounds perfect ... Wines & Pines. Another example of how creative you are!
