Banana & Nutella “Ice Cream”

You know already I’m trying to trick you, right? This recipe has been woven into the fabric that is Pinterest and has been around for a while. So you probably already know that people are whipping their frozen bananas into an ice cream like dessert. I tried it once last year in my blender to no avail, I could not get that damn banana to turn into ice cream. It was actually just not pleasant, it just tasted like icy banana. The consistency was all wrong. This year I persevered since I got a new food processor…and VICTORY! The consistency was much better and I was really reminded of banana ice cream. You can take this basic recipe and create any new flavors you want. It’s really versatile. As a tried and true ice cream lover I will tell you honestly that it doesn’t taste exactly like ice cream, but it is really delicious in its own right and much healthier for you. So give it a whirl and see what you can do. Summer …

Happy Birthday, Une Peach!

Just like in real life, my birthday wish is a bit belated for Une Peach. 🙂 In April I passed a year since my first post on this blog. It’s been a fun year as I continue to try and find the right voice and the right posts for it and I have loved thinking about how I want it to evolve. It’s like a living thing sometimes. The next year I will really be working towards weekly posts and more “lifestyle” and less “total food glutton.” But, ironically or not, this post will continue my total food glutton routine as I celebrated the year with a baby Nutella crepe cake! Want to make one? It’s pretty adorable.
