Holiday Week: Bananas Ice Cream

Like every other blogger and crafter on the planet, I am in love with Pinterest. While the Weasinart was unplugged, I took a pinning break too. But now that I am trying to get back to posting regularly, I have pinning with abandon.

This week, I am preparing for the first of my big races of the year. To a really awesome athlete, 15K (9.3 miles) of hills in the summer heat is no biggie. I, however, am a recovering couch potato. I really try to train appropriately and really watch what I eat before a big race. That means NO JUNK this week and very limited dairy or gluten (I am sensitive to both.) Of course, it have been between 80 and 90 for the last week. 

Here is where Pinterest comes in...

A super popular pin lately has been for 1 ingredient "ice cream". I was almost obligated to make it...and I am very happy that I did!

Two bananas-cut into coins and frozen on a sheet pan.

3 tablespoons of peanut butter and a scant tablespoon of honey.
You could skip the honey if you wanted even less sugar.

All ingredients are blitzed in the food processor and
placed in the freezer until solid(ish).

SO YUMMY! You could, of course, just use bananas but
I am a peanut butter lover from way back.
