I am in my happy place. 

OMG this really tastes like soft serve ice cream, but its just frozen bananas and organic vanilla powder.  

I didn't make up this recipe.  I have seen variations of this recipe so many times on Pinterest and YouTube but I thought really...how can just frozen bananas taste like ice cream?  So I finally tried it and its true. Its A M A Z I N G.

Ready?  Here we go...put frozen bananas and vanilla powder in your high speed blender and wait about 5 minutes for the bananas to thaw slightly.

I like to use a stainless steel bowl it helps keep it frozen longer.

When I first started making this recipe, I kept running out of frozen bananas and that's a problem because this stuff is my total go to snack.  Ice cream that is totally good for you, totally worth re-arranging your pantry.  Just sayin.

My Banana System

  • I re-organized by pantry so that I always have a spot to ripen my bananas
  • I found a big container to store my frozen bananas in and then I re-organized my freezer so there is a spot towards the front of my freezer so I can get in and out quickly.  I started using zip lock bags, but I if I kept doing that I would constantly be running out.
  • I bought 8 bunches of bananas to get started (yes that's 8 bunches) put them in my (newly well organized) pantry to ripen
  • Once they are ripe, I peel them and freeze them whole
  • When my frozen banana supply is down to about 1/2 buy 4 more bunches

Think its weird to be eating so many bananas?  Well that crossed my mind too.  So I did some research and yippee it turns out bananas are really good for you.  This one was my favourite source...

    • "Bananas combat depression, make you smarter, cure hangovers, relieve morning sickness, protect against kidney cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and blindness. They can cure the itch of a mosquito bite and put a great shine on your shoes. Here are 25 reasons to eat bananas you might have never considered before.

 

 

10  Minute Dairy-Free Vanilla Bean Blender Soft Serve Ice Cream

By: saltsole.com

Makes: 2 servings.  You can freeze the left overs (if you have any)

What You Need 

  • 4 - 5 ripened frozen banans
  • 1/8 teaspoon organic vanilla bean powder (I like the "Organic Traditions" brand) or 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract works great

    What To Do

    Prep ahead:

    (1) Peel and freeze a bunch of ripened bananas for about 8 hours or overnight.

    Blend:

    (2) Put the frozen bananas and vanilla powder in a high speed blender.  Let it sit for about 5 minutes so that it slightly starts to thaw.  

    (3) Start on a low speed and gradually increase to high.  If you are using a Vitamix blender use the tamper to work the bananas down towards the blade.

            So glad to have found a banana soulmate :) Love your idea of adding a bit of chocolate in the mix. I may experiment with a chocolate version for Easter.

            I think we are banana soulmates. I have an extreme amount of bananas in various states of ripening as well at any given time for the exact same reason. I also use ziploc bags and chop the bananas into slices for my version of this – which usually includes cocoa powder and sometimes, if I’m feeling crazy, some cocoa nibs. Your post made me laugh because I also wonder if I have a banana problem!

            This is super easy and I bet it’s kid-friendly, too. On that note, I shall keep this in mind the next time my pre-schooler asks for ice cream. What a brilliantly simple idea.
