Banana Ice Cream

It is probably one of my most favorite things.  With just three ingredients, this one just can't be beat.

Banana Ice Cream


4 bananas, just slightly overripe
2 tblsp creamy peanut butter
2 tsp coca powder (Dutch process)

Peel the bananas and slice them up into ¼ to ½ inch thick disks.  Place the banana slices in the freezer for an hour or until they are frozen solid.  Put the frozen slices in a food processor and pulse (I skipped this step and took ripe bananas and mashed them with a pastry blender until mashed).  First they will start to resemble gravel, but keep going.  The bananas will soon turn into a frozen mush- at this point, start scraping the sides down  (you will do this a lot) .  Or you could add a dash of milk since the liquid will help the blending.  I’m lactose-intolerant, so after a few minutes of stopping to scrape the sides down, the banana begins to blend into a creamy texture.  When the bananas look like whipped ice cream, you can add your mix-ins like peanut butter and/or coca powder, chocolate chips, toffee, raspberries, anything goes.
