Homemade Frozen Banana Soft Serve

While back home in Boston my family is under many feet of snow, down here in New Orleans, spring has arrived. With warm weather comes cool sweet treats, here’s a classic that will help keep the calories and cost down too!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 food processor
  • milk
  • vanilla or cool brew (optional)

When your bananas end up browning like they always seem to, peel, put two in a bag, and pop them in the freezer.  bagged bananas

Then when you’re craving a sweet, cool treat, take them out and pop them in a food processor. BananainBlender

Start the processing, but before it gets too far along add in some milk, not much will be needed, but it will help keep it creamy. blendingwithmilk

As you continue blending the bananas and milk, feel free to add more milk. You want to make sure it isn’t liquified. When you get the consistency to a good point add in a little vanilla or if you like coffee ice cream try something like Cool Brew (a concentrated, cold filtered, gourmet coffee extract.)

Throw some toppings on if you’d like and enjoy! Once your bananas are frozen the whole process shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes. Certainly cheaper, easier and healthier than going to the shops for ice cream or even frozen yogurt!
