Banana Swirl - YUM!

We keep watching this Daniel episode about trying new foods, and they make what they call a Banana Swirl.  It was simply putting bananas into the freezer, then once frozen throwing them into a blender until at an "ice cream" consistency.  No milk, no sugar, no nothing else!  Just Banana.  I almost always have bananas in the freezer.  Once they pass their prime, I throw them in so I can make muffins or bread later. 

K-Man has been asking for awhile to try, so I figured why not.  After dinner last night, I grabbed to frozen bananas, peeled them with a knife.  Skins on frozen bananas are tricky.  I don't have a fabulous blender, so we used the Cuisinart, which works better and quieter anyway.  Can I just say YUM?! 
 
Seriously, this was like having an ice cream only the only ingredient is banana.  K-Man, of course had toppings on his, but Mini-Me and I thought it was fabulous plain. I think I found my go-to dessert for the summer!
 
Thank you, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on PBS
PS:  If you kids aren't already watching it and you were a Mister Rogers fan, you will love this show!

  1. Sounds delish. I always unpeel before throwing them in the freezer. Is there a reason you leave the peel on? Just asking.

  2. I keep the skin on bc when I peel them, I get them white and creamy looking. The trick is to just run under warm water a few seconds, cut in half, the tips, then down the sides. Takes less than 10 seconds.
