Homemade Banana Ice Cream

You know those bananas you have laying around?  The ones that are past your preferential eating ripeness?  The ones you might otherwise waste by throwing in the garbage?  Maybe you're like me and you put those 'naners into the freezer for a later banana bread date.  Well, maybe you're also like me and you ate too much cheese and  drank far too much wine over the past few weeks.  Banana bread is not in your diet rotation right now, but you're still craving a bit of indulgence.  (a small bit of indulgence is critical when trying to shed a few pounds.)

Well, have I got a super easy treat for you!

It's as simple as this:

Take your frozen bananas out of the freezer.  

Defrost for 5 to 10 minutes.

Put them in a blender or food processor and grind 'em up.  You'll notice that I added two teaspoons of Dulce de Leche to my bananas.  It actually didn't add all that much flavor.  You could also add a tablespoon of peanut butter or a bit of honey if you want.  Or just do the bananas as they are.

Transfer to a bowl and snarf it up - tastes just like banana ice cream.  Except it doesn't have any added sugar and it's all natural.  It's low calorie.  It's guilt-free.  Divine.

You are welcome my friends. :)
