It's all relative, right? It's one of my favorite phrases to throw out there when I've said something that isn't exactly grounded and I know it.
Like saying.. this ice cream is fantastic. It's not Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie fantastic, it's smushed-then-whipped frozen banana fantastic. Fantastic for having no ice or cream in it. It's refreshing and easy and I'm lactose intolerant so for me it was as close as I'm gonna get to Ben or Jerry. It's all relative right?
No Ice, No Cream - It's All Relative Ice Cream
from The Kitchn
4 bananas, just slightly overripe (brown spots good, completely black not so good)
2 tbsps creamy peanut butter (optional)
2 tsps cocoa powder (Dutch process), (optional)
Peel the bananas and slice them up into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick disks. Place the banana slices in the freezer for about an hour until frozen solid. Put the frozen slices in a food processor and pulse. First they will start to resemble gravel, but keep going. The bananas will soon turn into a frozen mush - at this point, start scraping the sides down. The banana begins to blend into a creamy texture. When the bananas look like whipped ice cream, you can add your mix-ins like peanut butter and/or cocoa powder, chocolate chips, toffee, raspberries, anything goes! Straight out of the food processor, the ice cream is like soft serve.
You can also freeze it for a firmer texture. I find it's pretty hard (and therefore, brittle) when I scoop it immediately after removing it from the freezer. Just give it a few minute to soften up. Makes a pint.banana 2 banana 3 banana 4
