Banana Soft Serve!

The idea of Banana Soft Serve has been kicking around the blog world for a while. I first read about it on The Kitchn, but wasn't entirely convinced until Angela started raving about it on Oh She Glows (I love her blog!). I don't normally keep bananas around the house, but this might change my shopping habits! This stuff is seriously good.

The variations are endless, but I've been sticking to a peanut butter/chocolate vein. I can totally see using strawberries, blueberries, cherries, etc for a more fruity soft serve. Yum!

Tonight I made Peanut Butter Banana Soft Serve for my mom:
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • A glug of milk (dairy, soy, almond, etc)
  • 2T peanut butter 
Put it all in the food processor and let it do it's thang - the frozen banana gets creamy and a little gooey.

I like to stick it back in the freezer for a little while to let it firm up a bit. Yum!

At home, I have been adding 1-2t cocoa powder (sometimes with the peanut butter, sometimes without). I am totally addicted!

We are both so stuffed from dinner though, we might have to save this for tomorrow morning as a breakfast treat before our pedicures!


  1. yeah, I never make it either but I'm dying to try!!

    With the weather being so hot in CA, I have no choice but to stick my bananas in the freezer, they turn brown so fast. I think I'm going to give it a shot soon :)

  2. Let me know if you like it - I've converted everyone in my family!
