Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream

I received an email the other day from The Food Network Healthy Eats blog and saw this tantalizing one ingredient recipe for banana ice cream.  I'm not a super-big fan of bananas unless their are really green or cooked into something like banana nut bread.  The idea of a one ingredient ice cream sounded like it was too good to be true.

Being the skeptical person that I'am, I continued reading the email where it explained that the recipe really was one ingredient, bananas. I'm not sure if one ingredient constitutes being listed as a recipe, but since there was something that had to be done with the banana rather than peel and eat, I decided to try it.

Luckily, I have confirmed that I have at least 3 banana lovers living among me, and they love ice cream too, so that's a start in the right direction.  

Food Network's recipe had paired their version of banana ice cream with a lot of add-on's to make the ice cream taste even better, so I went with peanut butter, as a second ingredient and topped with some of our favorite ice cream toppings.  

This is how it went....

Peanut butter and banana ice cream, minus the cream.
You will thank me later.

This is one dessert you can sit and eat the whole container full while watching American Idol, without the guilt, it's just bananas and peanut butter after all. 

You are simply getting your vitamins and protein while eating a tasty frozen treat.

You will need bananas for this recipe, four of them to be exact.
They should be somewhat ripe too.

 This recipe is so easy a two year old can do it!
And she did.

Make sure your two year old cuts with a safe knife, we used a children's knife.

Slice bananas to fit into food processor.

Blend bananas in processor until pureed. 

At this point, if you are following this recipe, you will have pureed bananas.

You could: 
a.) pour into a freezer safe plastic container and pop it into the freezer.
b.) feed it to your baby or your neighbor's baby, if you or your neighbor has a    baby.
c.) add peanut butter to it to make peanut butter banana puree.

You guessed right, we chose c.), we wanted the protein in our banana ice cream.

Add in a 1/4 cup of peanut butter and blend.
Pour the puree into a freezer safe plastic container and freeze. 

After thoroughly frozen, scoop out and add your favorite toppings, like chocolate syrup and nuts.  (Caramel or strawberries might be nice too.)

If you like bananas, peanut butter and ice will like this guilt-free frozen tasty treat!
