How to Make No-Churn Banana Ice Cream

1.  Slice the bananas and freeze until firm.  Note: freeze in a single layer and once hard you can place them in a freezer bag until you’re ready for them.

2.  In a powerful blender or food processor blitz the frozen bananas.  Note:  I find the food processor works best and you might need to wait a few minutes for the bananas to soften slightly.

3.  Once smooth add cocoa powder and peanut butter to taste.  Start with a scoop of each and build from there until it tastes just how you or your kid likes.  The tasting is my son’s favorite part!

4.  Enjoy right away for a soft serve treat!   Or place the mixture in a plastic container and place in the freezer until hard enough to scoop.

I hope the next time you’ve got a few spotted bananas you stop yourself from throwing them out and make ice scream instead!
