Giveaway winner + Banana Ice Cream

Hello Bloggities!
Hope you had a happy Monday!  It's always so hard for me to get back into work mode after the weekend, but to work I went this morning.

First things first, the winner of the One Year Blogoversary is AubreyLaine!  Send me an e-mail at alyssa.neiers@gmail.com with your address and I will get your prize in the mail...right after I go to the grocery store and buy more sugar!  And Dad, thanks for following my blog but you didn't follow the rules correctly, you were supposed to comment on the blog, not on Facebook.  Don't worry though, I will make some lemon cake for you this weekend as your prize.


Now onto the food.  I've been reading a lot about banana ice cream and decided I really wanted to give it a try.  
It's actually super simple and super delicious!


Toss 2-3 bananas in the freezer so they are nice and frozen. 



It was actually really hard to unpeel them when they were frozen so next time I would peel them and slice them up then freeze them.  A stitch in time saves nine!

Slice them up into manageable chunks.


Toss them into your blender or food processor.


Throw in some other mix-ins you like.  I used about a tablespoon of almond butter, some cinnamon, and a little splash of vanilla.


Blend up till it's nice and smooth.  Scraping the sides of the blender as necessary.
Then spatula it out into a bowl.  
I stuck mine back in the freezer for a short bit while I was finishing up the dishes so it could get nice and chilly again.


Garnish as you wish.  The chocolate chips make for a great choice.  And enjoy!
A great summer treat for these scorching summer nights!
