Easy Banana "Ice Cream"

Here is a recipe for a super quick, super easy, "ice cream". Or maybe since this recipe is completely dairy-free, it should be called sorbet rather than ice cream... Nah, seeing as how it is so luscious and creamy, I think that "ice cream" is the better label.You want to use bananas with brown spots on the peel. The riper the banana, the sweeter the ice cream will be. (If using an under-ripe banana, you may have to add a little bit of honey or maple syrup to the ice cream).
Here's what you do:

Peel a ripe banana (or 2, or 3), and slice into chunks. Put the chunks into a zip-top bag. Place in freezer until fully frozen.

Once frozen, put banana chunks into a food processor. Add 2-4 tablespoons of water per banana (I usually start with 2, then add more if needed).

Churn until creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Enjoy immediately.

Feel free to play around with this recipe. You could make peanut-butter banana ice cream, chocolate banana ice cream, or anything else you can think of, just by adding different ingredients. Have fun, stay cool, and enjoy!
