All-Banana Ice Cream


All-Banana Ice Cream

*******
Serves 2

This is a simple go-to dessert.  We always have frozen bananas in the freezer in a plastic bag. If the bananas on the kitchen counter start getting too ripe before we’ve been able to eat them, we peel them, stick them in the plastic bag and voil√°—frozen bananas ready for ice cream or banana bread.

2 frozen bananas*  (easy: one banana per person)

1.     Break frozen bananas into smaller pieces and add to blender or food processor.
2.     Blend in food processor or blender until smooth. If you like, use some milk, coconut milk or yogurt to thin it down. That’s it!

Obvious mix-ins:  
Frozen berries, almond butter or protein powder.

Toppings:  
walnuts, dark chocolate sauce (or a bit of chopped up chocolate bar).

* If you want to kick this up a notch add this mix to the blender with the bananas:
2 TBL hemp seeds or walnuts
1 TBL mequite
1 TBL lucuma
2 tsp cacao or 1 TBL nibs
1 tsp maca
¼ tsp vanilla powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
