I read something on some blog (I cant remember which one) the other day about freezing sliced bananas and making ice cream out of them. I had some bananas that were ripe and decided to try it. I never ended up getting around to it and almost forgot completely.
Tonight the kids were pestering me about dessert (of which I did NOT want to have...I have been feeling very yucky fatty lately) and I remembered the bananas.
This I could do.
I blended the bananas up with some frozen raspberries and a little milk.
While pulling out the fruit, I noticed some leftover super delicious whole wheat buttermilk pancakes I made a few days ago and got an idea. I heated them up (slowly so they were not chewy) and topped them with a scoop of the banana/raspberry ice cream. Added a little drizzle of caramel syrup (because you can be TOO healthy, of course).
It was so tasty! It sounds weird but it was SOOOOOO GOOD! SOOOOO GOOD!
And much more healthy and fibrous that vanilla ice cream over double chocolate brownies (Oh...brownies).
I so impressed my impromptu culinary self that I had to take a picture.
I am quite a amateur in the kitchen (and with the camera for that matter) but I'm learning.
