Frozen Banana Soft Serve {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, RAW, Vegan}

Well it seems a little silly to say that this is gluten free or even to call it a "recipe" because what I'm about to share with you has only one ingredient...bananas.  Yep, that's it, just bananas.  Are you ready for the most tasty, creamy, rich, frozen treat ever?  This is my new favorite, especially in this summer heat.

After the birth of our third son, our friends showered us with blessings in the form of meals!  One friend brought chocolate dipped frozen banana bites with her meal and they were fabulous.  I was amazed at how the banana tasted just like vanilla ice cream and wasn't overly banana-y at all...delicious!   This is the same way!  I like my banana soft serve plain so I can savor the creamy, rich, sweetness, but I'm quite sure that some chocolate chips or granola as a topping would be amazing too.  Enjoy!

Recipe: (about 1 banana per person)
Ingredients:
bananas
toppings optional

Directions:
1. Peel bananas, cut them into thirds {so they're easier to process} and freeze in a resealable plastic bag or freezer safe glassware
2. Once bananas are frozen SOLID, place them in a food processor

3. Pulse the processor a few times, scrap down the sides.  Continue processing for about 2-4 minutes, scrapping down the sides as needed.  I used my Mini Cuisinart for less clean up.
4. Watch and you'll see when the bananas break down and start to puree.  Once it's smooth let it go for another few seconds to get it really whipped and creamy.  Don't over mix.  It should still be thick, here you can see it can hold my metal spoon upright!  Enjoy your guilt-free satisfying treat!
