Sometimes those bananas just get passed over for something else. Then by the time we realize we had not eaten them yet, they are over ripe and almost to the point of no return. I also try to keep frozen berries and fruits in the freezer to make quick smoothies for the family. If I can catch the bananas before they are past their prime, I like to slice them and freeze them too.
Skinny Strawberry Ice Cream
2 cups of frozen strawberries
2 frozen bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons of milk of your choice ( I used 1%)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. This may take a few minutes and you may need to stop it and stir a bit. Be patient, it will come together. Once smooth you can enjoy like soft serve or freeze for a few hours.
Cooks notes- my hubby suggested to add yogurt instead of milk to make it a little more creamy. Also, the flavor of "green" bananas will overtake this. Use ripe bananas.
