This Banana ‘Ice Cream’ is gloriously simple. Take a few bananas, freeze ’em and blitz them in the food processor. Done. A tasty, healthy treat.
Should you wish to build on that basic recipe, simply add whatever else you fancy – peanut butter, maple syrup, chocolate, cacao poweder or cocoa, nuts, fruit.. the list goes on. In this version, I added a tablespoon of home-made peanut butter per banana and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
BANANA ‘ICE CREAM’
- 1 banana per person
- Anything else you fancy (optional)
- Grab your bananas, peel them, and slice them into half inch rounds. Put them into a freezer bag until frozen.
- Chuck the frozen bananas into a food processor, along with any optional extras you want, and blitz them until the mixture is creamy and smooth (you may need to grab a spatula occasionally and push the mixture down off the sides of the bowl).
- Eat immediately (it starts melting quite quickly) or pop back into the freezer to eat later.
