Banana Ice cream

We are trying to eat healthy in this neck of the woods lately. Avoiding refined sugar and all that jazz. The other day I just needed something sweet and decided to whip up some banana ice cream. I have made this two different ways but the possibilities are endless.

I also mix it in my Kitchenaid. The banana is frozen so it has to be mixed for a while before it gets all creamy but it is so worth the few minutes of wait time at the end.

Strawberry Banana Ice cream
1 frozen banana
1 C frozen strawberries(slightly thawed)
a dash of vanilla or actual scrapings from a vanilla bean(which is divine!)
1 tsp agave nectar or honey

Put ingredients in the mixer and mix until creamy. It is thick and delicious.

Chocolate Peanut butter Banana Ice Cream
1 frozen banana
1 T cocoa pwd
1 T peanut butter
1 tsp agave

Put in mixer and mix until smooth. You may need to scrap the sides a few times. If it is too bitter from the cocoa reduce the amount of cocoa.

You're making the banana ice cream in your kitchenaid stand mixer? My blender just died, so I am going to try it my kitchenaid next time.
