Bananas Foster Nice CreamPosted in : alcohol, banana, Bananas Foster, dessert, easy, healthy, ice cream, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Rueb
I should have known that, when I bought bananas, I would end up with at least three overripe ones that would be too sweet to eat. Sure enough, here I stand with three overripe bananas. What’s worse, I have no interest whatsoever in making banana bread. That’s like, the only thing you can make with overripe bananas, right?
It took a bit of nosing around on Pinterest before I found a simple recipe for banana “nice” cream which pretty much just used bananas, but then I thought, why not turn it into bananas foster — but ice cream? My brain is my waistline’s worst enemy.
I didn’t actually have a recipe for this, I just kind of winged it. I used a guideline for making the straight-up banana nice cream (which pretty much said shove some bananas in the food processor, add goodies, freeze, indulge), but just kind of winged the rest of it based on bananas foster recipes.
Here we go!
3 slightly overripe bananas (a bit spotty)
A splash of spiced rum
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp molasses
You’ll also need a food processor and a bread pan you don’t mind donating to your freezer for a little while.
First step is to cut the bananas into 1/4-1/2 inch slices and toss them into the food processor. Pulse them until fluffy and then add goodies (this is where you can stray from the recipe if you want to add nuts or coconut or something other than bananas foster stuff)! Run the food processor a little more to mix in the added ingredients.
Pour the mixture into a bread pan and pop it in the freezer. For soft serve, remove it from the freezer 10 minutes prior to serving.
