Healthy Homemade Soft Serve

The final product (Yummy!). I'm a terrible food it looks even better in person.

I just stumbled upon what may be the greatest recipe ever at the Choosing Raw blog: banana soft serve. It's fabulous! If you're anything like me you frequently throw overripe bananas in the freezer to make banana bread. But, it's way too hot in the summer to bake. So, what do you do? Make banana ice cream! This is super easy, healthy, and delicious. I ate ice cream for dinner guilt free.

Getting Sarted
~2 frozen bananas (peel them before freezing)

Optional Ingredients
~1 cup frozen blueberries (or other fruit)
cocoa powder
peanut butter

Put the banana (and any optional ingredients) in a food processor. Blend for ~5 minutes. Stop occasionally to scrap the sides down. Scoop into bowl and enjoy! That's it. Super simple.

I was a bit skeptical when I started, especially since in the beginning it looks like all you'll get is shredded banana. Keep going and after a few minutes you get a nice smooth soft serve made entirely of fruit. I added blueberries to mine. I love blueberries! Give it a try!
