Banana "Ice Cream"

A recipe from the woman who taught me how to cook......My mama!

Believe it or not blended frozen bananas taste like ice cream. They take on the consistency of soft serve ice cream. For a firmer ice cream feel, just pop the blended bananas in the freezer for 15 more minutes.

Tonight we ate this tasty treat is with a touch of honey, 2 scoops of almond butter, pecans, and pineapple chunks folded in. . But the sky's the limit - add in your favorite paleo nut or fruit maybe even some coco powder and enjoy!

Sorry there is no photo! We ate all of it before I could get one... it didn't even make it into individual bowls. haha.

Ingredients

4 ripe bananas
2 tsp agave syrup or honey (optional)
2 tbsp almond butter (optional)
1/4 c. pecans (optional)
1/4c. pineapple chunks (optional)

Directions

1. Cut the ripe bananas into 1-2" pieces and freeze for at least 1 hour.
2. Place the frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor, along with any optional ingredients you choose to use.
3. Pulse until the bananas start to break apart, then switch on and blend for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the bowl, if necessary. The bananas will first break down into a sandy texture, before taking on the consistency of soft serve ice cream.
4. Top with any desired toppings!

SO CHEAP! SO EASY! SO YUM!
