Going Bananas


Slightly sad i haven’t updated this baby since April 14…but it’s finals time & i definitely do not want to study yet, so expect more blogs these coming weeks :)! hehh

I’m not sure if you all knew this, but banana ice cream can be made simply using bananas- and bananas alone. After hearing this, me & my lovely suitemates knew it was time to procrastinate.
Successfully smuggling 8 bananas from Parkside, one of our dining halls, we begun to experiment.

the smuggled bananas!

the smuggled bananas

ALOT of bananas
a blender
a knife
a freezer
That’s it!
First things first: 1. Peel and cut the bananas into slices, laying them out on plates so they don’t touch. 2. Put them in the freezer for ONLY 1-2 hours. 3. Take them out, then throw them in the blender. 4. Blend, blend, blend! *if bananas resist the blender at first, cut them up a little more. 5. Make sure the consistency is to your liking, & ENJOY your new homemade banana, heart-healthy ice cream! :)

1. slice em' good!

2. ready to freeze

3. & 4. blending time

5. the finished product

Okay, so confession: ours was a little smoothie-like because we accidentally left the bananas in the freezer for much longer than necessary (& ended up having to SUPER blend them & add stuff) :(
so learn from our mistakes. TAKE OUT BANANAS PROMPTLY!
enjoy & let me know how it goes! yay bananas ♥
