Well, I think it’s safe to say late summer heat has made for a steady supply of overripe bananas. It seems my bananas can’t last more than a day or two without taking a turn for the other side. I have no problem with this though – remember these?
Not sure what else to do with overripe bananas, I popped a few in the freezer. Then I decided to give banana soft serve a try. It’s all over blog-land lately, and I was pretty curious to find out what the hype was all about.
I grabbed my handy Magic Bullet and I was ready to get whippin’. I began by whipping up the frozen bananas with some frozen peach chunks, because if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I can’t stand to prepare any sort of recipe without giving it my own twist.
As the mixture started to become soft-serve-like, I popped in a handful of frozen blueberries, too. Why not?
Spoon the soft-serve into a dish, and top it with whatever you’d like. I topped mine with Special K Granola and half of one of my PB banana graham cookies.
It’s crazy what bananas can do. Crazy!
