I scream, you scream

We all scream for Ice Cream!!!!  Especially when it is hotter than HELL like it has been here in Aridzona.  So why not go for something cool, cheap, and tasty?

First of all a shout out to Andrea for sending this one over. Your timing on this one is Awesome! since we were away showing and no time to be cooking or making anything...

One ingredient? I know it sounds crazy, but that's it.  Frozen bananas...
From the website in case you cannot access it-
Choose two bananas- not too ripe
Peel the bananas, cut them into 'coins'.
Set them on a plate and freeze them for 1-2 hours. 
Put them into a food processor or blender.
Blend on high.
Initially it will look crumbly, and it will stick to the sides. Keep scraping it down into the blades and eventually it turns into....
creamy ice cream!
Now is when it is recommended to add, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, peanut butter, milk (if you want it creamier) cinnamon, nuts, honey, hazelnut cocoa mix- the options are endless. It is the texture of soft serve, but says you can freeze it in an airtight container for the standard, harder ice cream. In the comments someone else suggested adding cottage cheese (?), mango's and even alvacado.
I am looking forward to trying this one soon...

That sounds interesting. I have some frozen bananas in my freezer so will try it & add PB. PS thanks for the Whoopie Pie comment over at Amish stories.
