Bananrama… this is what you do with those brown bananas

Jun 7, 2013 by

We all love bananas and we buy a big ripe bunch at the store and then we forget about them on the kitchen counter and they are somehow all brown within  a day of bringing them home.  It’s a classic tale as old as time.  I’m pretty sure Shakespeare has a play about it.

So what do you do with those brown bananas that no one wants to eat?

You make this awesome dessert that is likely to be tastier and healthier than all that crap in the stores.

This recipe requires a bit of forethought as you’ll need to freeze the bananas ahead of time.  So take those browning bananas, slice them up onto a plate and throw that plate in the freezer for a few hours.

Once you have the frozen bananas, throw them in the food processor or blender.  Our blender sucks, so we shall use the food processor.

turn the processor on until you get this creamy mixture of bananan-y goodness.  You can stop here if you want.  You’ve made a tasty and smooth banana ice cream like treat and it is good. Or you can keep going and make it epic.

Here’s the part where you get to add whatever you like.  I had a Reese’s peanut butter cup on hand, so in it went.

This was the best idea ever.  I am hooked on these damn cashew clusters from Costco.  I should not buy these, but they are just so tasty.  I had all the crumbs from the end of the bag, so I threw them in.

I’m a genius.

Blend it all up.

And it may not be the most appealing picture, but it is oh so tasty.  You can take it out and eat it right then or throw it back into the freezer to let it firm up a little more.

This is a great snack and an awesome way to not throw away perfectly good bananas that no one will eat.  Depending on what you put in it, this can be a very healthy dessert as well.
