Raise your hand if you've already RSVP'd to the banana soft serve party.  Raise 'em high muffins!  We need to see what kind of people we're dealing with. 

How many of you have RSVP'd?  RSVP'd, put on your party dress, gone to the party, bought the tee shirt and commemorative mug? 

Well look at those hands!  Banana soft serve is sweeping the nation.  We understand of course.  It's delicious, easy, tastes like ice cream but somehow magically made from BANANAS.  As in FRUIT.  Plus it takes to additions superbly. 

Like toffee, or peanut butter, or chocolate, which kind of defeats the healthy fruit business we suppose.  But surely bananas with toffee, peanut butter and chocolate is better than ice cream with toffee, peanut butter and chocolate? 

Whatever.  That's our story and we're sticking to it.

Wait!  What's that?!  Second to last row, third from the left?  Sheepishly downcast eyes and no hand raise?  You haven't been to the party!?!  NO RSVP?!!

Well then cookie, this is for you.  And for the rest of you soft serve experts?  Scoot over, this party's about to get a lot more crowded.

Banana Soft Serve
Serves 2

Print Recipe

3 bananas, sliced into disks & frozen (we just keep them in the freezer at the ready)

Optional add ins:
Peanut butter (or any nut butter)
Chocolate chips
Crushed candy bars of your choice
Vanilla, almond or orange extract (1/2 teaspoon)

Place frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade.  Puree bananas for a few minutes, stopping the blade and scraping down the sides every 30 seconds or so, until the mixture is a smooth and creamy consistency.  It may take a bit if time depending on how many bananas you're using and the size of your food processor.

If you're adding in any additional ingredients, place in the food processor with the bananas before you start pureeing the mixture.

For soft serve serve immediately.  Can also be frozen further if you prefer a firmer ice cream.
