SUPER EASY BANANA ICE CREAM

Last month I was surfing the channels on my t.v. and saw Five Ingredient Fix on the Food Network. The lady (sorry can't think of her name right now) stated that she had a brilliant idea for making a super easy banana ice cream that took really no effort. This I had to see since I love bananas. She just froze the pieces of banana, and then put them all into a food processor and turned it on. The finished product was something that looked exactly like ice cream. I was amazed, a five year old could do this on their own. There are quite a few additions you could make to vary the flavours of this ice cream. So without further adieu, here is the recipe. Let your kids help you in the kitchen with this! They'll love it!

Serves 4

Ingredients:
  • 3 bananas, peeled and cut into chunky pieces (need to freeze)
  • milk (to help thin it out if needed)
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (optional)
  • toasted peanuts or cashews, chopped (optional)
  • miniature chocolate chips (optional)

Take 3 bananas, peel and cut them into chunks. Place them onto a baking sheet and place them into the freezer until solid. Place the frozen banana chunks into a food processor and puree the bananas. If you need to loosen the mixture then add a bit of milk as needed. To add another layer of flavour you could add in 1/4 cup of peanut butter. Serve into individual dessert bowls and sprinkle miniature chocolate chips and/or toasted peanuts/cashews. Enjoy!
