Easy Banana "Ice Cream"

It's not really ice cream because it has no actual cream in it.  I suppose you could call it a frozen treat!

I froze some bananas that were going brown and spotty after peeling them and tossing them into a ziplock bag.
Upon retrieving them from ice-cold doom, I plopped them into my food processor, popped the lid on and turned it on full blast.
I pulsed the mix until it was somewhat chunky and then turned on the processor to a steady go around until it was smooth, creamy and wonderful!

It resembles ice cream and has a similar mouthfeel until it starts to get melty.  Then you have a bowl of really cold banana pudding.  This is not a bad deal!
I put a little honey in to up the sweet.

I'm thinking this would be WONDERFUL with chunks of dark chocolate tossed in at the end and hand mixed in.  Peanuts too!

I realize I should have taken a photo, but we ate it too fast!

I love a frozen banana! I just peel them and freeze them in a bag, cut in half, and then eat it like a popsicle when it's frozen. Sooo yummy!
