Banana Ice Cream
I've seen this recipe (if you can even call it that) all over the internet lately and I decided to try it out since I have a few bananas that need to be used up.
I used 3 very ripe bananas. Peel and slice each banana into about 3/4in pieces (it doesn't matter too much what size they are) Then, place them in a bag and put them in the freezer until completely frozen (this will take a few hours so plan ahead!). Now when you are ready to make the ice cream put the chunks of frozen banana in a food processor and process until nice and creamy. If you like bananas quite a bit you can eat it just how it is, but you can also add other ingredients to spice things up. For instance, I added a big spoonful of peanut butter and a little bit of honey while processing the bananas. If you need a little chocolate fix you could even mix in some chocolate chips. Feel free to experiment with it!
The key to this ice cream is that it must be served immediately after processing it. If you re-freeze it, it just does not have the same creamy texture.
This is just what I need on a hot summer day.
Happy Tuesday to you!
