Sunday Brunch: Banana Swirl
3 1/2 Bananas, peeled and put into chunks in the freezer
Berries for topping
That's right, just bananas! How much healthier could a frozen treat get?
*Note: I got this idea from the show 'Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood', which my daughter watches incessantly.
Put the banana chunks in the freezer for minimum an hour. Once the bananas are frozen, let them thaw only enough to get them apart and out of the bowl. Put them in a strong blender or food processor and pulse at highest speed for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately in a cone, waffle bowl (pictured) or a regular bowl if you want to skip the sugar. Consistency should be that of ice cream or froyo. I should note that I had to keep a spatula in the drop tube of the food processor and hover it about a half inch above the blade to keep the mixture moving along. Top with your favourite berries and enjoy! A small amount of berries may also be added to blender for a dash of different flavour right in the mix (not sure how much it could tolerate before messing with the consistency).
