Ice cream personality decoded


Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test? I’ve had to do it for work before.  It’s fun and usually so accurate it’s frightening.  Here’s an abridged version of the test, if you’d like to give it a shot.   Myers-Briggs aside, I have to share a much more important personality analysis…ice cream.  After a heated debate the other night with my better half over best-ever ice cream flavors, I figured somewhere out there someone surely must have decoded what your favorite flavor says about you.  Turns out, Baskin Robbins has the inside scoop!

Baskin-Robbins  teamed up with Dr. Alan Hirsh, founder of Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, to understand what the most popular ice cream flavors say about someone’s personality.

Here are the results:

Vanilla // You’re more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and an idealist.

Chocolate // You’re more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.

Very Berry Strawberry // You’re more likely to be a tolerant, devoted and an introvert.

Mint Chocolate Chip // You’re more likely to be argumentative, frugal and cautious.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough // You’re more likely to be ambitious, competitive and a visionary.

Pralines ‘n Cream // You’re more likely to be loving, supportive and prefer to avoid the spotlight.

Jamoca // You’re more likely to be scrupulous, conscientious and a moral perfectionist.

Chocolate Chip // You’re more likely to be generous, competent and a go getter.

Rainbow Sherbet // You’re more likely to be analytic, decisive and pessimistic.

Rocky Road // You’re more likely to be aggressive, engaging and a good listener.

Personally, I’m a Pralines ‘n Cream kind of gal, but I’m much more of an extrovert than described above.  What’s your favorite flavor?  Does the description of your personality ring true?

One ingredient all-natural ice cream!

Ohmigosh, this is so amazing!  Creamy, delicious ice cream with one ingredient and no extra tools or equipment!


How you might ask?  Frozen BANANAS.  That’s right, simply pop sliced, frozen bananas into a food processor and violà…instant soft-serve, custard-style ice cream!


It’s so simple.  Slice bananas and freeze them for at least 6 hours in a Ziploc bag.  Add to a food processor and purée until creamy.  If needed, to help smooth out the purée, you can add a splash of milk.



You can experiment with adding some additional flair such as peanut butter, Nutella, honey or chocolate.  Enjoy plain or top with sprinkles, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, cookie pieces, you get the idea!

I was skeptical about this far-fetched kitchen trick at first.  I figured the texture would be icy or crumbly, but it was delicious, rich and silky.  Also perfect for those with dietary restrictions.

Have you tried frozen banana ice cream?  What do you think?
