So simple you won’t believe it till you try it.
Freeze some ripe bananas.
Peeling & slicing first is the easiest. Peel, slice into chunks, and pop them in a plastic container, and keep renewing them each time you use them up.
However if you can cope with a little bit of finger-freezing extra work, they do taste better if frozen with the peel on, as it releases aromatic oils from the skin, and they will keep in the freezer longer.
For frozen whole bananas, use a sharp knife to peel them when frozen. They’ll look wierd and black but that’s ok. Usually the peel will come off in sections if you slice thinly down the sides a few times and then once across. Once peeled, cut into chunks.
(Here’s a tip: have a small bowl of warm water nearby to dip your fingers in as needed. You can also leave the frozen banana out on the bench for five minutes before peeling so it’s not quite so icy to touch.)
Toss peeled frozen chunks into a good blender (a Magic Bullet is ideal), and top up with a bit of water – just enough so it can blend.
Blend it till smooth and creamy. That’s it.
To make a berry icecream, just add a few frozen berries before blending.
It is absolutely delicious, totally healthy — no added fats or sugars or artificial ingrediants. And no plastic packaging.
Eat it straight away, and eat it as often as you want. Altho I’d suggest eating it as a cooling wonderful snack away from your main meals (or leave a gap); chilling your stomach is a good way to cool you down, but it may hinder digestion of other (especially cooked) foods.
So there you go: freeze, chop, blend and enjoy!
