I used my vitamix this time however, I have used the food processor in the past.  In the vitamix, start off on level one and increase speed gradually.  This mix was perfectly sweet because I used very ripe bananas.  If the bananas weren’t overly ripe, I would have added a few pitted dates or a tablespoon of maple syrup for sweetness.

Banana “ice cream” can be made with a bunch of different add in such as:

oats, maple syrup, and raisins

mint extract and chocolate chips

almond butter and honey

raspberry and chocolate chips

apple, cinnamon and dates

…you get the picture, the possibilities are endless!
