What do you do with your over-ripe bananas? Toss them? Make banana bread?
Ugh. No more banana bread, please!
I had several over-ripe bananas and was searching the internet for inspiration. I came across several recipes for one-ingredient ‘soft-serve’ that people were just raving about. I was both intrigued and skeptical; I like bananas, but really? Soft-serve?!
I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I quickly sliced my bananas into quarter-sized pieces and placed them in an airtight bag in the freezer. Within a few hours, my bananas were frozen solid. I placed the equivalent of one banana (slightly defrosted) in my food processor. One-ingredient soft serve did not seem sufficient so I threw in a tablespoon of almond butter and processed until smooth.
The result: the banana soft-serve is my new food crush! I love it! I have it as a post-workout snack or for dessert. It is so delicious and easy to make! You can substitute any nut butter of your choice (peanut butter is also very tasty)!
