Banana Soft Serve


Only 2 ingredients? YES finally something extremely easy and delicious, at first I thought: great I don't have an ice cream maker, but as I continue to read the recipe I saw that all that I had to do was to put frozen bananas in a food processor, I almost laughed but my sister almost cried when she realized that it was banana ice cream... she hates bananas

- 4 ripe bananas
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

1. Put bananas in a bag and freeze them for about 4 hours, when they are completely frozen put all the ingredients in a food processor until you have a smooth mixture, serve immediately or pour it into a container, sprinkle cinnamon and freeze.




You can eat it as breakfast topped with granola 


Or you can have it as dessert with a mixture of berries and a thin mint

  10. it still amazes me that it's so easy to make banana soft serve and it's actually much healthier to make it yourself at home ~ you can control the sugar that you put in or none at all if the bananas are ripe enough :D

  24. I LOVE making banana ice cream- normally I add some walnuts and chocolate chips when processing it and it up straight up from the first process without refreezing, it is like soft serve- so good!

    I like the idea of making a big batch and keeping it in the freezer :)

  28. I've seen similar recipes before, but I think adding the real vanilla and cinnamon is the way to go for flavouring. Nice!
