Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

It's really not good for me or my pants size that I learned how to make this.

Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

3/4 C. Chocolate Chips
2 Eggs
3/4 C. Sugar
2 C. Whipping Cream
1 C. Milk
2 t. Vanilla Extract
3 overripe Bananas
Juice of 1 Lemon

Place the chocolate chunks in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.  Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Whisking the whole time, add the sugar, a little at a time, pour in the cream and milk, and add the vanilla.  Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's directions.

For what it's worth, if you're using a Cuisinart ice cream maker, make sure your freezer is cold enough to freeze the bowl completely first.  If it's not and you find out at this point in making this recipe (ahem), you can still just process, stick the ice cream into the freezer after about 20 minutes, and hope for the best!

Mash the bananas in a bowl, add the lemon juice, and whisk until smooth.  After the ice cream stiffens (or, you know, doesn't (see above) - in which case, do this about 18 minutes after starting processing), add the banana mixture and chocolate chunks, then continue freezing until done.
