I have been wanting to make the Whipped Banana from GAPSters, but I don’t have that homogenizer thing they use on their juicer.
And my son, on the way home from work on late afternoon decided to stop by Dairy Queen to get my favorite Blizzard – the Turtle Pecan Cluster. He asked me if it would be too tempting if he got that one, and I told him I would be okay.
I was okay! It really helps if you know you can make something similar. I am not having chocolate, but I could have something cold and smooth and dreamy with walnuts, I told myself.
When I got home I froze the last banana. It was perfectly ripe, with brown spots. I mushed it up and froze it flattened so it would be easier to break up when I put it into my Magic Bullet.
I really need to start measuring, but smoothies are really for me at least, about throwing some stuff in and mixing it up and it always tastes delicious.
Banana Dream Smoothie
- one frozen banana
- one egg yolk, optional
- coconut milk
- pinch of cinnamon
Carefully slice frozen banana into small chunks. Add egg yolk and coconut milk. Blend.
Garnish with cinnamon.
Ohhhhh… it was sooooo dreamy and creamy and delicious! I am not really eating a lot of fruit right now, but I think I’ll buy bananas when they are on sale and freeze them individually to use for this smoothie when I want a cold dessert.
