Eat Bananas…B-A-N-A-N-A-S

I’ve got to share this banana ice cream recipe with you.  (I’ve found that it actually tastes better if you sing the “Eat Bananas” song while you’re making it!  No…really, it does.)

This recipes is as easy as 1…2…3!

1st:  Freeze Bananas

 Let me tell you that when I go to the grocery store and buy bananas, I always buy 2 bunches.  We eat one bunch and let the other bunch ripen.

When they are good and ripe I freeze them to use in smoothies and to make banana ice cream. 

To freeze them you need to peel them first.  This is VERY important.  The first time I froze bananas I left the peel on and it was impossible to get to the banana.

 I also recommend IQF (individual quick freeze).  Which means lay them on a plate or cookie sheet and let them freeze for a little while before putting them in a freezer bag.  This is going to keep them from sticking  together and turning into one big solid banana block!

I also break them in half before I freeze them, because I usually only add 1/2 frozen banana to my smoothies.

2nd:  Add Bananas to a Food Processor

Blend them for 5 minutes. 

They will go through changes during the 5 minutes and you will doubt that the outcome will be good.

Trust me…

Wait for it, wait for it.  Ahh…after 5 minutes you will have delicious, creamy banana ice cream.

3rd:  Enjoy!

You’re going to love this!  You’re kids are going to love this! 

A great snack that you don’t have to feel guilty about.  You could give this to your kids for breakfast and they will think you’re the best mom ever!  (I mean they’re going to know that you’re the best mom ever.)
