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.
So 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 those little suckers 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 blend until smooth and creamy. This may take a bit and your roommates/neighbors will hate you for it but it’s 100% worth it. It you like it a bit firmer, put it back in the fridge for 15-20 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!
