Berry Banana Butter Sorbet(?)

This isn’t a sorbet. It’s a healthy smooth thing that will fix your ice cream cravings. It will stop you from setting out the door and buying £4 Ben and Jerry’s. All you need is 4 ingredients to make this bad boy. Or girl. I think this ‘sorbet’ looks more like a girl. I’ve gotten really into freezing old bananas and then processing them as a substitute for ice cream and making super smooth and ice-cold things like this. All you need to do is PEEL the bananas and break up into pieces and freeze in a bag or box. (DO NOT just shove an old banana in the freezer, it is impossible to peel if you do this).  I made this for my mum and I thought she was gonna eat the glass cos she loved it so much.

Ingredients

1 frozen banana

-1 cup of frozen berries

-1 dessert spoon of peanut butter

-1/2-1 tbsp milk

-1 tsp of yoghurt (optional)

Method

-With a food processor, process the frozen banana and berries until they look like crumbs and are just starting to come together.

-Add the peanut butter and continue to process. If it comes to a stand still you might,no you WILL need to start scraping (it’s inevitable) the sides of the food processor.

-Once it seems a bit stiff and doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere, add the milk and yoghurt if using. Blend until all is processed and looks like sorbet and scrape into a glass or bowl. Nom nom nom….

  1. I am so going to try this! I keep frozen bananas on hand for recipes like this. Love the addition of the peanut butter 🙂 Swing by my blog if you have a sec. I am hosting a virtual Ice Cream Social and there have been some great recipes shared. Join in if you have the time!

  2. I love this idea. I almost never buy bananas any more, but I’m thinking I’ll get some and substitute almond butter for the peanut butter. Thanks for sharing this!
