Banana Soft Serve

Here's another "recipe" with one ingredient.
Freeze banana chunks.  If you have a weird compulsion to buy all the bananas in the "reduced produce" section because they cost something about 5 cents each, you might have some on hand.  Oh, that's just me.  Let's move on. 
Place frozen banana chunks in the food processor and let it whirl.  Stop and scrape down the sides every so often. 
It will go through a weird banana pellet stage.  Don't be deterred.  Keep scraping it down and pushing the banana into the blade.  It will eventually become the consistency of soft serve ice cream.
Eat as is, or add in cocoa powder, peanut butter, strawberries or whatever you like. 

This makes the perfect sweet treat afternoon snack.
I shared mine with my sidekick, which is why we used this elegant spoon.
He loved it, and kind of dominated the spoon.
In fact, this was the expression he made every time I deigned to take a bite.

I probably should have brought out two spoons.  And a bib for one of us. 


  1. Now this sounds like something even I can do...will definitely have to try it out!
