Easy Banana “Ice Cream”

What do you do with your brown bananas?  Banana bread and banana pudding tend to be the old standby recipes, but if you’d like something different, give this nifty “ice cream” recipe a try:

  • Freeze the overly ripe bananas until you’re ready to use them.
  • Blend frozen bananas.
  • Serve.

Yes, it’s that easy!  The frozen bananas make an easy, nutritious ice cream treat that have no added ingredients.  If it’s not sweet enough, just add some honey to it.

This delicious treat makes a great topping for any plain cake as well as warmed up banana bread!  And speaking of banana bread, freezing bananas is a great way to keep them until you’re ready to make your bread.  Just thaw when ready, snip one end, and squeeze out the fruit.  (For a great Banana Nut Bread recipe, check out this one from AllRecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/extreme-banana-nut-bread-ebnb/detail.aspx)
