No Ice Cream Maker Needed

Maybe you have a food processor but no ice cream maker?  Have I got the ice cream for you.

Want ice cream but you are lactose intolerant?  Have I got the 'ice cream' for you.

Want ice cream but can't eat that many calories?  Have I got the ice cream for you.

I saw it first on Kat and Matt's blog, A Good Appetite.  Then I found the recipe at The Kitchn, Apartment Therapy.  If you like bananas- this stuff will twirl your toes.  Seriously- it's that good and that easy.

Step one:  Buy bananas.
Step two:  Slice bananas.
Step three:  Freeze bananas (two hour minimum).
Step four:  Process bananas in processor.
Step five:  If they have been whirling in the processor and are still dry, add some water or milk (if you like).  Or even a couple tablespoons chocolate syrup (ah, c'mon, live on the edge).
Step six:  Once the bananas have moved from a crumbly dryish stage, they will move into a soft serve ice cream kind of stage, like the picture.
Step seven: Remove from processor.  Sit down, kick your feet up and enjoy.

I've seen this recipe around but still haven't tried it. I need to as I have 5 over ripe bananas.

what fascinates me most about this is that there aren't any packages of retail banana ice cream available. have you ever seen it? i haven't. it'd be darn good.

This is really fascinating. It would be wonderful for children. I'm sending it to my daughter who has a child who can't have dairy. She might be able to use this. I hope you had a fantastic holiday. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I have some nanners in the freezer right now! I have a really hard time tolerating ice cream even though I love it. I am going to make this!

This has got to be the best way to eat bananas.
