A few weeks ago Harbor Greens was having a sale on cherries so being the fruit loving nut that I am, I high tailed to the University Place location to scoop some up. It was also very hot that week, so I decided to make the greatest thing ever: Cherry ice cream.
This is one of the easiest things you will ever make.
- Frozen bananas
- Frozen cherries
Blend bananas and cherries in a food processor or high speed blender. After it has created a creamy consistency you can either eat as is or put in the freezer for an hour before eating.
Your bananas should be ripe. I’m talking banana bread bananas. Like fruit flies have taken over the kitchen ripe. Peel the bananas and break up before sealing in a Ziploc bag or Tupperware. I typically use an extra-large banana for every 2 cups of cherries. That alone adds up to somewhere between 275-300 calories. Plus you get all the health benefits of eating bananas (potassium, fiber, protein) and cherries (iron, vitamin A & C and more fiber).
You could totally eat this for breakfast.
