Frozen Banana Dessert

frozen banana dessert frozen banana dessert with chopped nutsApparently 1.4 million bananas are thrown away every day! How many of them are yours?

I usually make banana bread or banana and oatmeal muffins with my old bananas but when I saw this recipe for banana icecream I started putting my over-ripe bananas in the freezer straight away!

A few weeks later when I had enough bananas in the freezer, I discovered that the blitzing process is made a lot easier if you slice the bananas quite thinly before you freeze them, and let them thaw slightly before turning the processor on!

So far, we’ve had just plain banana, and some topped with chopped nuts & everyone has loved them – next time we’re going to try making lollies!

    Great idea about freezing the overripe bananas. I actually clicked on this item to suggest that to you. Bananas are wonderful food. It’s a shame how people waste them.
