Intro To Cooking: Banana Soft Serve
You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream.
But I scream the loudest.
And my abs scream quite differently. That’s why I totally flipped out (in glee!) last weekend at Target while shopping for a blender. I wanted to buy one to make fruit smoothies and iced coffees instead of spending $5 a pop at Jamba Juice. When I dragged my friend along with me on my quest for smoothie heaven, she informed me that she also uses her blender religiously….for bananas.
WTF? That sh*t is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
But then she told me that if you first freeze the banana, then blend it until it’s completely fluffy, it tastes just like soft serve ice cream! And guess what yummy flavor it comes in? Needless to say, I had to try it out, so my Target bag included not only a new 10-speed blender, but also a nice giant bunch of bananas. And now all I can say is… YUM.
Stuff you need:
2-3 frozen bananas
A powerful blender
Your favorite toppings (May include: berries, dried fruit, hot fudge, syrup, chocolate sauce, cinnamon, sprinkles, granola, even more cut-up bananas.)
Mix and serve:
1) Put the frozen nanners into the blender.
2) Blend on high for a few minutes, until the nanners get all light and fluffy and delicious-looking.
3) Pour into a bowl and add desired toppings on top, as much as you can handle.
4) Eat. it. up. And lots of it – this stuff is healthy, so who cares if you go back for seconds?
