Surprise! I'm back. I know I said yesterday was my last post before my "wedding furlough", but I made some whipped banana "ice cream" yesterday and have been chomping at the bit to share it with all of you. I have read about this recipe on Pinterest (don't even get me started on the addictive properties of Pinterest...oh dear lord!), and have been pondering trying it for some time now.
This recipe involves a banana. Yep, that's it. Just a banana. Or two, or three, or even four depending on how much "ice cream" you want to make. I put ice cream in quotation marks because it's not really ice cream. But the frozen bananas are supposed to taste like ice cream.
You simply slice a banana, stick the pieces in a tupperware container in the freezer for an hour or two, and then whip the pieces in a blender. Easy as pie. Or well, in the case, as easy as ice cream. I will say that I tried freezing the whole banana, but it doesn't work so great when you try to peel that whole frozen banana. Peel it and chop it first, then freeze it.
Pinterest says you can just whip a banana, but I think next time I'd add a bit of peanut butter or chocolate to give it some depth of flavor. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I didn't like it. But I think it would taste better with some sugar :) Leave it to me to ruin a healthy treat.
