Banana Ice Cream...aka Frozen Bananas
I've seen this around a few cooking blogs over the past few months, and finally thought we'd give it a try one night. It's not really "ice cream" as it doesn't have any dairy, but does sure look like it!
After I whipped it up following the directions below, this had the true texture of soft serve ice cream, but had much different aftertaste than ice cream...it tasted not surprisingly, like bananas. I covered my two scoops of "ice cream" with chocolate syrup, so it was the perfect chocolate delivery system! This was a fun weeknight snack, and I didn't have to run a marathon to burn off the dessert calories!
Banana Ice Cream
Recipe adapted from The Kitchn
Use one banana per serving (i.e., 2 bananas for 2 servings)
Peel bananas and cut into small pieces and freeze. (at least 1 to 2 hours)
Using a food processor and scraping down the sides periodically, blend the frozen pieces until the mixture becomes smooth. Scoop and serve!
