banana not ice cream

Ice cream without the cream...  or the sugar!  If you're trying to avoid sugar or can't have dairy, but love ice cream, here's your solution!

I like chocolate syrup and chopped nuts on mine (think Chocolate-Covered Frozen Banana!), but for those trying to be extra healthy, feel free to enjoy it plain!
(and in case you were wondering...  Yes, you have seen this here before in a slightly less-healthy Nutella version!  to see that again, click here!)

Banana Not Ice Cream Recipe
This recipe makes 2-4 small servings.

3-4 bananas, sliced

Slice the bananas into 1/2" rounds, place in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze overnight.

Place the frozen banana slices into your food processor or blender.  Pulse (or blend) until the bananas are smooth and creamy, the consistency of soft-serve ice cream!  (This will take a few minutes...  be patient!)

(Disclaimer:  Your food processor might sound like it is going to explode in to a million pieces when you start processing the frozen bananas.  It WON'T! - or at least mine didn't!  :o) - Just give it a few pulses and it will start to calm down...)

You can eat this right away as a soft-serve ice cream, or if you like your ice cream firm like I do, pack it into a tupperware container and freeze for several hours!
