I made this ice cream base a bit lighter and less sweet than usual; the trade-off is ice cream with a slightly icy texture. For a smoother ice cream, swap the extra 1/2 cup of half and half for the same amount of heavy cream, and increase the sugar in the custard to 1/3 cup.
For the best flavor, use bananas that are yellow with lots of brown freckles.
If you don't have half and half, you can use 1 cup whole milk to make the custard, and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream to finish it.
