Banana "Ice Cream"

So this isn't really a recipe and isn't even ice cream. But, it is a great way to use up bananas without having to turn on your oven.
I had 4 bananas staring at me in the fruit basket that I needed to use soon. As much as I love banana bread, I just didn't feel like turning on the oven. So I just peeled the bananas, put them in a Ziploc bag, and threw them in the freezer until I could decide what I wanted to do with them.
Then it hit me... why not just blend up the frozen bananas? I do it all the time for smoothies and I figured it would be thick enough and creamy enough to be an ice cream-like dessert. And you know what? It totally was! Creamy, cold, and delicious! You could even mix in chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, whatever makes you happy!
I enjoyed it, the kids enjoyed it, and I hope you enjoy it too!

So that is a great idea. My kids would love it. Especially with chocolate chips. ANd the chicken with bacons looks fab too! :)
