I mean really. Making ice cream out of a banana? Lies, lies, lies!
Turns out, though, that this one is actually true.
Banana-Coffee Ice Cream
The recent post on The Kitchn has all kinds of variations: peanut butter, chocolate, Nutella, cinnamon...all looking way too good to be true. In the interest of being fair, balanced, and caffeinated in my research, I chose to add some Twix bars and a spoonful of black coffee** to my "magic" bananas.
A couple of ripe bananas, cut into coins and frozen for at least a few hours
1 package of Twix bars, chopped (next time, I'm doing Oreos)
1 Tbs. strong black coffee
Dash of vanilla extract
Eat immediately, or transfer to a container and freeze for an hour or so. Then it'll have the exact texture of regular ice cream. And it will taste creamy, rich and AWESOME.
Cross my heart and hope to die.
