Very easy steps to follow (but you'll need a food processor):
- Freeze 3 or 4 bananas (peeled and roughly chopped) for a couple of hours.
- Place bananas in food processor and let rip. (Mine can't be used for more than a minute or so before it starts to sulk, so I generally have to process the bananas in two or three stages, letting the food processor recover for about 15 - 20 mins in between). The bananas will become light, aerated and creamy, just like soft-serve ice-cream. It defies logic (you think it will turn out mushy and slimy like mashed bananas), but not so! Take my word for it.
- Serve at this point, OR
- Add two tablespoons of cocoa powder (very rough measurement - add it to taste, really), two tablespoons of caster sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence, and let rip with the food processor once again, to blend ingredients.
- Serve immediately.
Oh, btw, this recipe should make enough for 2 meaningful servings, or 3 smaller servings. Apart from the freezing time, and taking into account my food processor's need to rest for 20 minutes after every minute, the dish takes about 45 minutes to prepare (realistically, in terms of time actually spent preparing the dish, it takes about 5 minutes. Unbelievable!!)
Take my advice and try this one. If you don't have a food processor, then this is a reason to get one!
