Frozen Banana desert

Sometime ago I stumbled on a recipe for making a healthful 1 ingredient cool desert.  I probably should post this in the summer, but what the hell it sounds good to me right now so here you go from thekitchn.com


  1. First freeze some bananas,
  2. Slice said frozen bananas and pop them in the food processor or blender
  3. Blend until smooth
  4. ?
  5. Profit!


I have made it a few times so I can attest to how close to ice cream the texture is, and for a "healthful" desert it is pretty good.  My problem now is my food processor is broken so I haven't been able to make this in a while, but it's fun and usually surprises people with how good it is.  To make it less healthful I would add some Nutella or just straight up chocolate syrup.

  9. Why'd they call it icecream? This is more like banana fruit shake than icecream.
