- Peel and slice a ripe banana. I used a super-ripe banana, but my husband would like to try it with one that's less ripe.
- Freeze the slices, spaced out a bit so they won't stick together. I've seen this done on a sheet of waxed paper, but I froze them in a Rubbermaid container.
- Put the slices in a food processor. I used a 1-cup chopper because I don't have a food processor and I know the frozen bananas would kill my blender! Blend until smooth and creamy. I thinned it with a bit of skim milk, but that's optional.
- Eat immediately or freeze briefly.
We tried it immediately and I also froze a portion, after I'd swirled some chocolate syrup into it. I stirred it every ten minutes or so and left it in the freezer for a total of about 45 minutes. At that point it was similar in consistency to soft-serve ice cream.
My doctor recommends that I eat bananas (for the potassium), and this certainly works for me!
