Take a look at this great idea for an easy and rather lowfat dessert from reader Leslie. She took that amazing, miraculous 1-ingredient ice cream and made an ice cream pie out of it. Read on to see what she did!
Turning frozen bananas into creamy ice cream.
Here's what Leslie says:
It was really fun to make! First I crushed up some walnuts and sprinkled them on the bottom of a chocolate pie crust. Then I put the bananas and a little agave (agave because my bananas weren't very sweet)in the food processor and watched it crumble and unfold into... banana ice cream! I poured that into the pie crust and dripped organic chocolate sauce on top. Then I put that into the freezer for a few minutes while I made the other batch of bananas.This time I added peanut butter. Very yummy! I then poured the peanut butter banana ice cream on top of the first layer and let that freeze. Before serving I again dripped the organic chocolate sauce on top and garnished with whipped cream! So good!!!I might try experimenting by adding different flavorings into the bananas like mint, coffee, different chopped nuts...
That looks amazing, Leslie! And it's a great idea; the banana ice cream is so easy to make, and it's very spreadable when it is first made. So it would be easy to spread it in a pie crust and freeze it. Yum!
