2-Minute Banana Ice Cream by cakecrumbs 2-Minute Banana Ice Cream by cakecrumbs
This is something I've been waiting for the right opportunity to try, and now the heat in Aus has me flailing around the house like a dying whale not baking, my moment had finally arrived.

I don't have an ice cream maker, so this is perfect. To make the ice cream all you do it throw frozen bananas into your food processor and pulse until it's creamy. Could it get any easier? Then you can play with flavour combos. I put raspberries and coconut in one batch, and nutella in another. I rally wanna make some using peanut butter as well but I ran outta bananas. 

This is also great for people who can't have dairy or sugar, or choose not to.

A big company musta tapped your idea because thats what the 'Yonana' machine essentially is! You stick in frozen fruit and it comes out as all natural ice cream.  Nice to know you can achieve the same result with a food processor though!

Oh, this looks so amazing! I'm going to have to try it one day. :D Especially since two of my younger cousins are allergic to dairy, it'd be nice to have something to make with them one day.

The Ice cream looks great (and as a milk-allergy victim I have to try this!)

However, I must point out that, if you can muster the energy to 'flail', it can't be that hot :P

I rather stupidly got out a Leg of Lamb to defrost yesterday eve when we were having a cool snap. Today it is back up to normal Summer weather and I have to choose between cooking a roast in this heat, or letting it go off. If lamb wasn't so expensive these days.... :hmm:

Oh dear, what did you choose? Did you know you can actually refreeze defrosted meat? We grow up learning that it's a massive no-no but I learned recently it's actually fine to thow it back in the freezer. As long as it us not yet off it can be frozen.

I Cooked it. Opened up all the windows and sat outside in the shade while it was baking. Once it was done I let it cool and carved it up. I'll use some for sandwiches, portion out the rest and freeze it in gravy. I can usually get about 10 meals out of a roast :)

I had read that you can re-freeze thawed meat, but I think I'm brainwashed. The few times I've done it I haven't been able to make myself use it. I always wind up leaving it until it's completely freezer-burnt and then throwing it out. :shrug:

Old habits die so hard! After a lifetime of always storing cakes in the freezer it took me 2 years to break the habit after I started baking and learned that refrigeration is the death of good cake. 

Also I totally hear you on the freezer burned thing. If I'm ever not sure about food I can't throw it out until it becomes irreparably damaged by the freezer or it becomes really feral in the fridge.

This ice cream looks terrific! The fact it's dairy free makes it 10x better! :)
