I needed ice cream the other night, but my pint of Ben & Jerry’s was long since eaten, so I had a choice: go to the grocery store, or go to Pinterest. Guess which one I did.
This is “ice cream” made from one ingredient: bananas. All you do is peel, chop, freeze, and puree.
The hell. I mean, bananas are kind of inferior fruits anyway, so how are they supposed to make delicious ice cream? I call bullshit.
But I chopped and froze as instructed.
Now here’s the part where I started getting grumpy. The site the recipe comes from wants you to use a food processor or a blender. I am not dragging my fucking food processor from the back of the cabinet, dusting it off, putting it all together, figuring out how to turn it on, chopping most of at least one finger off in the process, and then washing it all for one serving of squished up bananas that probably are going to have a taste resembling ass anyway. Not gonna happen.
So I stuck them in a bag.
And I mooshed them. Yes, mooshed. I squeezed the shit out of them until they were all squished up in the bag. We don’t need no stinkin’ food processor.
Not the most appetizing thing, I grant you, but once I spooned it out into the bowl, it didn’t look quite as bad. And, really, it didn’t taste bad either. The verdict? Sort of an ice cream consistency, I guess, but it’s still a squished up frozen banana, so you don’t really need to tax your imagination too much to figure out what it tasted like.
Also, don’t waste your time with the food processor, dudes. Squish. It works.
