After reading this post, you will have no excuses for not being able to make something fast and healthy…unless you don’t like bananas.
Really? Change my life? Frozen bananas –> ice cream with one ingredient? No way.
I finally froze some bananas that were on their way out, and then I whirled them away in the food processor.
Banana Ice Cream
3 bananas in chunks. Yes, that is all.
Optional add ins: pecans, salt, honey, chocolate chips, strawberries, peanut butter, the list goes on! Can’t wait to try some of these combinations.
Place frozen banana chunks in food processor and turn on. Hold onto your Cuisinart for dear life. I have never seen the thing jump like that! It stopped jumping after the pieces were broken up. Let whirl for a while, and stop to scrape from sides once. Whirl again until consistency is like ice cream, or frozen yogurt.
1.5 bananas makes about 2 ice cream scooper-sized scoops.
Spoon into bowl, on top of oatmeal, over fruit salad, with cookies. The list goes on!
Banana Nut Ice Cream
3 frozen bananas in chunks (makes about 4 single scoop servings)
1/4 C pecans
dash of salt
Add all ingredients to food processor. Hold on and let whirl.
OMG delicious. The nuts add a lot of flavor and texture. Yes, you have to like bananas. But I was licking the spatula and not feeling guilty. It’s JUST BANANAS.
I didn’t create this magical concept, but I wanted to share with my readers! Enjoy!
