Banana Soft Serve

We're having a gloriously summery day here in St Andrews, it's even warm enough to wear shorts (ok, I'm sitting here with the shorts and a warm sweater but I'm determined to not take those shorts off...)
Anyhow, since I told you a while back I wasn't going to give you any summery recipes until it was summer here you get an extra summery recipe today.
Anyone remember the vegan banana soft serve everyone was making a couple of years back? Jenna's post a few weeks back reminded me of how amazing and addictive that stuff was so I made some last week (while wearing warm woolly socks) and I was catapulted right back to the gloriously hot summer of '09.
Do you remember where you spent your summer that year? I spent mine summer school hopping, enjoying the sun, finally riding my bike again and reading papers sitting next to a lake.
So...if you are looking for a lovely snack that comes together in less than 5 minutes and will make you smile for the rest of the afternoon, make some banana soft serve (again)!

Banana Soft Serve
2 Bananas per person (frozen, cut into pieces - either freeze them with the skin on and then cut the skin off before chopping them or peel them and freeze them already cut into pieces in a ziploc bag)

Stick the bananas into a food processor (the kind with a blade) and blitz the whole thing for 2 or 3 minutes until it's all creamy.
Done :)


  1. it's really that easy?

    Here i am wishing i have some bananas handy...

  2. yes it is that easy :)
    I keep freezing the last banana or two in pretty much every bunch I buy, you know the ones that are already pushing it ripeness-wise. They're perfect for this because they're so sweet. And if you get fed up with the soft serve you can always make banana bread with them :)
