We have a small apple banana grove in our back yard. It started with two banana trees, which each had a bunch of bananas, then they had babies (the old ones are cut down).... This week we harvested another bunch of bananas. What to do with all these bananas?
Home-made apple banana ice cream! A number of years ago I found a super yummy and super healthy recipe. And it is EASY.
You cut bananas into bite-sized pieces, lay them on a pan and freeze for a couple hours.
Once frozen solid, you dump them in your blender. I add a little milk to help them blend faster, but you don't need to add it.
Scrape it into a container. Either eat right away - it will be the consistency of soft ice cream - or return to freezer to harden it up a little.
It is remarkably sweet, even though you will have added no sugar (or anything besides a little milk, for that matter). Enjoy! I have not tried this with regular bananas - but I am guessing it would work the same way.
