Easy Ice Cream

Got a bunch of overripe bananas?
When mine get too ripe, I peel them and freeze them in 2 or 3inch sections in a freezer bag. Usually they are used in smoothies, or on occasion, banana bread.
Here's how you can make yummy ice cream with them in your food processor:
- add frozen chunks of banana to your food processor with the chopping blade.
- add other fruit if desired (like blueberries, peaches, strawberries) or even peanut butter or cocoa powder!
- add about 1T of vanilla
- add milk, up to half the amount of fruit. It is best to start with too little milk than too much.
- give your processor a whirl until it reaches soft-serve consistency.
It's so yummy and guilt free you could eat this for breakfast!

  1. I have more bags of over-ripe bananas in my freezer than I care to admit! I usually use them for banana bread and smoothies. Ice cream is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
