Warm summer days beg for cool-downs in the form of frozen desserts, but when you have neither an ice-cream maker nor the will to seek out a shop selling soft-serve, sweet relief may seem just out of reach. Except, it's not. As long as you have one banana, you can make your own ice-cold, ice-cream-inspired treat.
Frozen Banana Soft Serve
1 banana per serving
Optional toppings, such as cinnamon, grated dark chocolate or crumbled gingersnaps
Peel the ripened bananas, place in a large freezer bag and freeze overnight (or for at least two hours).
Break the frozen bananas in half and place the pieces in a food processor. Pulse until smooth.
You may freeze the mixture for a harder consistency, or enjoy it right away by scooping into bowl or cone and sprinkling with your choice of toppings.
