I've been meaning to post this healthy substitute for ice cream for a long time because it's so clever and ingenius. Frozen bananas whipped in a food processor are a blank canvas for whatever ice cream toppings your little heart desires. In my case, it's caramel, chocolate syrup, and toasted pecans. I love making this when I want something sweet without the guilt. You get the health benefits from bananas but it still tastes indulgent. It doesn't get much simpler or easier than this one!
Turtle Banana Soft Serve
2 frozen bananas
1/2 cup toasted pecans
Break frozen bananas into thirds and peel with a sharp knife (be careful!).
Place bananas in a food processor set with metal blade and pulse until the bananas are whipped and smooth.
Use a spatula to scoop out the whipped bananas and place into a serving bowl. Drizzle with caramel and chocolate sauce and sprinkle on toasted pecans.
