You’d never think that popping a few bananas in the freezer would result in an ice-cream-like indulgence… even better, it’ll be done in a snap. The dates give a sweet taste akin to smooth caramel, while the pecans add an extra crunch.
Two Minute Banana-Cinnamon-Caramel Crunch Ice Cream
4 overripe bananas, peeled, cut in three pieces each, and frozen*
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup honey dates, chopped
1/3 cup toasted pecans, chopped (don’t toaste pecans for a raw version)
Toss bananas in food processor with cinnamon. Let sit about five minutes, until lightly thawed, and whiz until smooth. Stir in dates and pecans. Serve immediately. (If it gets too soft, you can put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes.)
*Using overripe bananas adds extra sweetness to the end result.
