Haven't posted in this forum before.. But I'm going to try a new recipe tonight and I'm super excited about it!
Soooo, I had some bananas that were **just** on the brink of starting to turn brown, and there's no possible way that I could eat them all in a day or two.. I had about 4 left (I have no idea why they turned brown so quickly! I wasn't keeping them on the fridge or anything.)
In any case, I peeled and froze them, and I'm thinking with their otherwise creamy texture (like when we add them to banana bread or muffins), they could make a nice ice-cream-like base if blended while still mostly-frozen.
Soooo, this is what I'm going to try:
4-5 frozen bananas
a bit of almond extract
a bit of vanilla extract
a dash of cinnamon
an even smaller dash of agave nectar (just because my fiancé likes things a little sweeter)
Blend until smoove.
What do you think? Has anyone tried this, or does anyone have any tips to make this work? I'm not a vegan or anything, but this seems like it could be a nutritionally dense substitute for otherwise fat-full ice cream (fat free chemical laden foods make me a little nervous, but I won't get into that here. :) )
I'll let you know how it goes!
