I know I know I know. It’s winter. I should be sharing some sort of tasty soul warming food.  BUT here is the thing.  I like cold things in the winter. I always have. I’m hoping there are some other crazy souls out there that feel the same way 🙂

This dessert (or occasional breakfast…) is the easiest thing to make.  The only ingredient is frozen bananas. If you are like me you probably have a bag of frozen ripe bananas in your freezer.  The texture of the whip is very reminiscent of  soft serve ice cream. Which has always been a favorite of mine.  So if you like bananas and like the texture of soft serve then I suggest you get in the kitchen and make this immediately.  It takes less than 5 minutes!

Just a little note to my wonderful readers 🙂 My mom is flying in this evening so I’m probably going to be absent for a week.  Sorta like last week – which I used to clean and organize my house. That way when my mom comes she thinks I live like a responsible almost 29 year old women. If only she knew the truth 😉

Banana Whip

This fresh and easy banana whip only uses 1 ingredient and tastes like creamy banana ice cream. You won't believe how easy this dessert is to throw together!

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas

Directions:

In a food processor add frozen banana and start processing. Stopping after a minute or so to scrap down sides if you see it starting to stick. At first you will notice the banana start to resemble small dots (think dip and dots ice cream...do they even still make that?) Just keep processing and stopping to scrape until the banana comes together and resembles creamy soft serve ice cream. It should be smooth with no large chunks of banana remaining. This whole process should take between 3 and 5 minutes.

I like to eat my banana whip plain with nothing on it BUT I have heard that a drizzle or two of chocolate can be quite nice....
