Yes, that’s right. This one has been getting a lot of steam these days, and it’s totally worth the try! All you have to do is freeze the bananas, food process/blend them, add whatever else you want to the mix, and serve! The beauty of this recipe is that the possibilities are endless. While there is a banana taste, it is not overpowering. By adding dried fruit, chocolate, nuts, or any other topping/mix-in of your choice, you completely change the dessert. I like to blend mine with cocoa powder to make a chocolate version, but bananas alone do the trick.
I topped the finished banana cream with some chopped dried figs and apricots.
Banana Ice-Cream w/Dried Figs and Apricots
– 3 bananas, chopped and frozen
– chopped dried fruit (your choice!)
Peel, chop and seal the bananas in a plastic bag.
Put into the freezer overnight or at least 4-6 hours.
The next day…
Remove the bananas and food process them until the mixture is creamy and ice-cream like.
Time to add whatever you like. You could mix the toppings with the mixture in the food processor or just add to the top of the finished product. I used dried figs and apricots.
Guiltless and SO good. You can eat this for breakfast too!
