Goin' Bananas

Last night, Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point inspired me to make Banana Soft Serve. Mostly because it’s the easiest thing to do and takes no brain power, which we know I don’t have when it comes to the kitchen.

You can visit Caitlin’s blog and see the amazing breakfast she made incorporating the soft serve, or you can be lazy and read my horrible attempt at instructions:

  • Place a few bananas in a food processor (I used the Magic Bullet) until they are a liquid consistency.
  • Freeze the liquid bananas.
  • Once frozen, place the bananas back in the food processor and process until they are a creamy ice-cream like consistency.

Then, do with those bananas what you will (keep it legal). I topped them with a few semi-sweet morsels.

The hubs and I tried the banana soft serve and we both agreed that it was good but eating a sliced frozen banana tastes more like ice cream to us, while the soft serve tasted more like a pudding/ice cream hybrid.

Also, the serving in the cup is one banana. I could easily eat 3 times that, so personally I would need to be careful unless I want to be eating 300-400 calories in bananas for dessert. I do think the one banana portion would be especially tasty as a waffle or pancake topping.

  1. The banana soft serve looks very good… I wonder if that would work if I’m lame and only have blender? May be worth a try! 🙂

  2. I’ve never tried the banana soft serve before…I have a tonne of nanners in my freezer, maybe I should give it a whirl.

    I have no race pictures because all of the races I do are smaller and don’t take pictures! Lame I know. I am sure I could dig up some terrible pictures of myself in everyday life though 🙂

  3. Ah, what lovely racing pics those are! Aren’t my leaped print gloves greatness? I was totally clueless about running attire. Oh how I have changed in the past 18 months!

    The banana soft serve looks tasty. Perhaps I need some. My legs have been cramping!

  4. Oh yeah, I’ve got a doozy for ya. I don’t get it, I don’t think I’m all that bad looking in real life, but my race photos are fug. Major yikes.

  5. You should see what Jessica @How Sweet It Is does with banana soft serve. Obscene.

  6. I’m with shannon. I always manage to look like I’m about to puke or go to sleep in my pictures. Nice.

  7. yum to that banana soft serve! anything with bananas is good to me. maybe some pb chips on top next time? that’s what i plan on doing 🙂
