For our very first date, Mr. Vitamix 5200 and I decided to go out for ice cream. Except, thanks to Mr. Vitamix, we didn’t have to “go out” at all!
While browsing through the Vitamix cookbook (it comes with the blender), my eye caught a recipe for vitamix soft serve ice cream. It looked so easy– the only ingredients are milk, sweetener, and ice! I put mine over a few slices of banana and some chocolate syrup, of course.
I thought it tasted good… until Vitamix and I went out for another date and met up with this handsome fellow:
Hello Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream!
As an experiment, I blended together some peanut butter, banana slices, and almond milk. Then I poured the soupy mixture into a bowl and froze it overnight. The next day, I re-blended it, and the result was a creamy, delicious, and wholly-healthy homemade ice cream.
(Edit: If you omit the milk and just use frozen banana with Banana Butter, there’s no need to re-blend.)
Sidenote: Mr. Food Processor would like to thank everyone who expressed concerns about his well-being. Rest assured that he is doing fine. In fact, my blogger friend, Cody, informed me that he’s recently struck up a rebound relationship with her toaster. But I am still open to the prospect of a future one-night-stand every now and then with Mr. FP (to chop carrots, make bread crumbs, or for another small job). So he is actually not completely out of my life.
