I’m always making banana bread with my aging, brown bananas. Don’t get me wrong, it’s absolutely delicious and I eat the entire loaf. There in lays the problem though! I don’t want to contribute to food waste so I’m not just going to chuck them in the bin.
Here’s something different, a way to save those bananas without also consuming excessive amounts of baked goods.
All you need is a plastic bag, ripe bananas, a freezer, and a blender. Yes, it is that easy.
I’ll explain the method real quick so you can start living your amazing new life with banana ice cream included.
- Cut up the RIPE bananas and put them in a plastic bag.
- Freeze them until they are hard (I’ll usually just leave them in there for a day or so).
- Once frozen, throw them into a blender and add a 1/4 cup of milk (any variety) if the bananas are wreaking havoc on your blender. You can also add other frozen fruits, cinnamon, vanilla extract, whatever you like.
- Blend until smooth and creamy. If you like it a bit firmer, put it back in the fridge for 20 – 45 minutes. Take it out, and enjoy your creation!
You can also add other ingredients to make vegan ice cream that’s super yummy even if you don’t follow that particular diet!
