I am in love with this simple (and healthy) recipe. It’s hardly a recipe, which is one reason I like it so much. All that’s really needed is frozen bananas. Then, if you want to add something to spice up the cool treat, supplement with a splash of almond milk, a scoop of peanut butter, a spoonful of cocoa powder, or even some chocolate chips, like I did today.

Easy banana soft serve

Easy banana soft serve
1. Slice about one frozen banana into small pieces and put into a food processor or electric food chopper. (I use my little food pulser/chopper, and it works great!) Note: use more banana if you want to serve more people or make more … I think I used about 1.5 bananas for this bowl.
2. The banana chunks will get littler and chunkier — kind of dry and grainy almost. You can add a splash of milk at this point to help the process. Or not. Keep blending them together until the banana is all soft and smooth — much like the consistency of soft serve ice cream.
3. Add any other mix-ins you’d like (see the list above, or make up your own!). I added about a Tablespoon of peanut butter.
4. Scoop out of mixer and enjoy!

At left is a close-up of the finished product. The blended frozen banana has such a lovely consistency, and it tastes like a treat rather than just pureed banana!
