When you ask your son to buy four bananas and he comes back with four bunches and you already have 6 bananas at home. What do you do?
The New York Times has an easy, one ingredient, healthy, cool solution.
Peel four ripe bananas, cut them in 2- to 3-inch chunks, and place them in a freezer bag in the freezer for at least 6 hours. Remove and blend in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately, or freeze in an airtight container for at least 2 hours. Scoop and serve.
If you like soft-serve consistency, eat it right away (adding a few tablespoons of milk to the blender wouldn't hurt, but it's not necessary). For more traditional scoops, freeze it in an airtight container, and dole out as you would from a pint of Ben & Jerry's or your local ice cream shop. Consider adding a spoonful of peanut butter, Nutella or honey; a handful of chocolate chips or almonds; or a 1/2 teaspoon of powdered ginger, cardamom or cinnamon.
