Banana Ice Cream

The title of this post would suggest that it's about ice cream made with bananas but it's about ice cream made of bananas. We've recently decided that it would be best if our whole family went dairy free. Me and Henry were already dairy free and Mya still hadn't seemed to outgrow her issues with it so we've taken her off dairy too and her skin has cleared right up! Adam found this recipe for banana ice cream and we thought we'd give it a whirl since we had a bunch of bananas lying around and it's been a really long time since I've had ice cream. The comments seem promising and I'm hoping it works out since we'll be using a blender instead of a food processor.

Verdict: It turned out amazing! The blender ended up being useless so we ended up using our mini chopper which is like a mini food processor. It just meant we had to do it in 3 or 4 small batches as opposed to all at once. It was a hit with each of us and Mya even said "it tastes just like ice cream!" We're considering trying it again sometime but adding new flavors like peanut butter or strawberries. Yum!

Please don't let the crappy photo fool you. It really was yummy but I only thought to take a picture of the left overs after I had returned them to the it looks less appetizing than when it's fresh.

Banana ice cream for the win!
