When good smoothies go bad

This morning I noticed that a bunch of bananas were going bad. Not wanting to throw them out I sliced them into chunks and placed them onto a baking sheet. I put the baking sheet in the freezer. I told my daughter that we would make smoothies after dinner. So, after dinner I took out the frozen banana chunks and a bag of frozen pineapple. We added the bananas, pineapple and milk to the blender. All was going smoothly until the blender died. The mixture was no where near smoothie quality. Not to fear! I took bowls out of the cupboard and scooped the thick mixture into single serve portions. It was a big hit! The kids kept asking me for more “banana pineapple ice cream”.

So, I guess I made a new healthy dessert. Shhh don’t tell the kids it’s good for them!

Frozen banana chunks
Frozen pineapple chunks
Milk, soy milk or almond milk

Partially blend mix until a very thick texture is reached. I used 6 bananas and a bag of pineapple and it served 6 people.

Next time I think I might try frozen berries and bananas.
