peaches & cream



I accidentally made this "ice cream" while making a smoothie. All it is is bananas and milk. The texture really took me by surprise. It's very similar to homemade ice cream.

I had a peach the other day that I felt like grilling. (Have you ever had a grilled peach? They're amazing.) And I decided it would probably be perfect with the banana ice cream. I was right. :]

ingredients:
3 bananas, cut into chunks
1/4 cup of milk (I used 1% cow's milk)
1 peach, cut in half & pitted

directions:
Freeze the chopped bananas in a freezer proof bag overnite. (Or at least for 8 hours, or so. They need to be frozen solid.)

Lightly grease a grill pan with butter, & grill peaches, flesh side down for a couple of minutes, until softened.

Blend bananas with the milk until it turns into ice cream. Serve with grilled peach.

(Serves 2.)

  6. Do you have to use a food processor or can you use a blender? (may be a really stupid question)

  8. Heather, you're way too kind. :] I always use a blender! But I guess you could use a food processor, if it were big enough!

  11. frozen bananas blended even without adding any milk or cream still makes that ice cream consistency. its amazing! my dad used to make it for us all the time when we were little, then we'd add cinnamon and blueberries.
