Banana “ice cream”
April 15, 2011 § Leave a comment
So I was playing on the internet and I found an article about putting frozen banana in a food processor and eating it like ice cream. http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/stay-cool/how-to-make-creamy-ice-cream-with-just-one-ingredient-093414
Not one to believe that healthy things can be easy or delicious, I decided to try it, mainly so that I could confirm its grossness and pat my cynical self on the back.
Huh. It was amazing. I didn’t even take photos of it because I forgot – I was that swept away by it. Sure it requires a teeny bit of planning (you know, chopping up a banana and freezing it), but it is SO good. I added a few walnuts. I eat it for breakfast or dessert if I need something sweet.
1. Chop up some ripe bananas into medallions (if you will) and freeze them. Doesn’t matter if they’re spotty, since you’re just gonna chuck them in a food processor later and blend the bejeezus out of them.
2. Once fully frozen, take out about one bananas worth (or more) and chuck it in a food processor and blend the bejeezus out of it (maybe a minute to get it really smooth).
3. Marvel at how easy that was, and enjoy. I have it on good authority that it also tastes good with a few tiny pieces of dark chocolate.
