Banana Ice Cream (with peanut butter!)

When you have overripe bananas that you know you’re not going to just peel and eat, what do you do with them? Put them in the freezer for banana bread? Throw them out? Leave them on the counter until they’re completely black? Well let me introduce another idea to you. Make ice cream!

Take those ripe bananas, cut them 1 inch pieces, put them in a plastic bag, and throw them into the freezer.

When you have a few bananas in there, you’re ready to make delicious ice cream.

Banana Ice Cream

2-3 Frozen Bananas

Water

Peanut Butter (optional)

Instructions: Remove the bananas from the freezer and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Toss in blender, add a littler water (you can always add more but can’t take it out so start slow), and blend. If you like you can put a spoonful of peanut butter…that’s our favorite. Blend a little more to make sure it’s all mixed.

The consistency is so creamy and delightful. We even had too much last time and put it in the freezer. When I ate it the next day it was just as perfect as a fresh batch. This is a favorite for us especially when we’re trying to cut back on the treats and desserts.
