Banana Ice Cream Dream!

It really is summer!  Hot and sticky and time for more cool treats to taste! 

At any given time we usually have 3 to 8 frozen bananas on hand.  We are always tossing brown bananas onto a cookie sheet and into the freezer ready for banana bread, smoothies and most importantly today – Banana Dreamy Ice Creamy!

This is one of the most ridiculous recipes because it is so so so simple (as long as you have a food processor or high speed blender).

Banana Dream Ice Cream!
ingredients – Frozen Banana – that is it!!!!!  What!?
Yes sirree Bob!  Frozen Bananas whizzed and scraped down and whizzed again until smooth and you have a truly unbelievable creamy banana ice cream (you really can fool people with this one!)

Here are some of our favorite variations on this (but do try it plain and simple it is soooo good!).
