Banana Ice Cream

This is almost more of a ‘hey did you know this works?’ than a recipe, but it’s so worth knowing that it’s worth the post! Blending up frozen bananas makes an ice cream that tastes great, so much better than just ‘a banana, but cold’! This is a perfect way to use up some spare bananas if you’re not feeling the urge for banana bread, or if you just want a super simple dessert.

Ingredients:

  • bananas
  • peanut butter and/or honey, as desired

Peel the bananas into a dish with a cover, cutting or breaking the bananas into pieces with your hands as you peel. Cover, and place in the freezer at least 5 hours.

Aw heck, freezer burn!

Once the banana chunks are frozen, blend or process in a food processor until smooth. You can add some peanut butter or honey, if desired, for sweetness and flavor.

Did this again later in a food processor and it actually probably works better, if you’ve got one.

When well blended, the color of the resulting banana ice cream gets quite light, but if there are still a few chunks it’s not the end of the world.

Refreeze, if desired, or eat immediately. Simple!
