– 3-4 bananas, add more or less depending on how much you want to make


Discard banana peels and chop bananas into bite sized chunks

Place into a sealed container and freeze banana chunks until frozen through.

Pour frozen banana chunks into a food processor and process on high. They will start to break down into a mixture with visible chunks – keep processing until it begins to look thick and creamy like icecream.

Serve immediately. Garnish with a few mint leaves if you want to be fancy!
