…or Blueberry Banana Ice Cream, if you prefer!

This is another simple, no-ice cream machine-required kind of recipe, where frozen bananas serve as the base of the dish and blueberry sauce (made from on-the-verge fresh blueberries, natch!) provides the added flavoring. Theoretically this recipe is suitable for the dogs too, except that the blueberries are apt to stain their fur or – worse yet – your furniture. Spoil them at your own risk!

 
Banana Blueberry Ice Cream

Makes two to three generous servings!

Ingredients

5 ripe bananas (the browner the better!), sliced and frozen
2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
3/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of water
spices to taste, such as cinnamon or nutmeg; I used a dash of lemon peel, since I had some on hand

Directions

1. Peel and slice the bananas. Place in an airtight container and store in the freezer overnight.

2. In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar and water and cook on medium heat, stirring vigilantly, until the blueberries have burst and the sauce is thick and almost jam-like (about 15 minutes). Transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge overnight or until chilled.

3. In a food processor, combine the bananas and blueberry sauce (as well as any spices your taste buds may desire) and process until smooth. Be careful not to over-mix, lest the ice cream get too soupy. If necessary, transfer to an airtight container and chill in the freezer for an hour to firm up the ice cream.

4. Enjoy often. This dessert is good for you, yo!
