And what’s quicker and easier than Banana ‘Scream? It takes about 2 minutes from start to finish, simple, and totally customizable to pretty much any diet (except a banana allergy). We tend to have browning bananas go to freezer heaven, and the lucky ones are found and made into dessert before they become a mass of ice crystals.
1 banana, frozen, chopped into 5-6 chunks
1 TBSP liquor (chocolate liquor, Frangelico, whatever)
OR 1 TBSP “milk”, juice or water
1 pinch vanilla beans, cacao nibs, cinnamon, chocolate shavings or whatever other topping suits your fancy.
Blend until smooth in the food processor.
See? Couldn’t be simpler. I get my husband to eat fruit and he counts it as dessert. That works for me!
I’m submitting this to Ricki’s Wellness Weekends, because it’s a great way to liberate dessert from the necessity of sugar, gluten and such.
