It is a beautiful machine that will change your life. It makes smoothies, ice cream, nut butters, SAUSAGE, bread, soups, salsas, flours, marinades, basically anything you want. It is magical.
And I want to share a delicious treat I devour at least 4 days a week.
So you take some perfectly ripe bananas (I like to raid the we-need-to-get-rid-of-this-produce-before-it-goes-bad cart at the grocery store on Thursday nights) and you peel them and cut them into about 6 or 7 pieces, put them in tupperware or ziploc bags (the bags worked best), and put them in the freezer.
After they are all frozen and you have a craving for something sweet, throw a good handful and a half of bananas in your blender with a splash of milk and a teaspoon or so of cocoa (and sometimes I throw in a TBS of peanut butter) and blend.
This has nothing to do with banana ice cream but it is pretty awesome. I mean, I can't think think of a better hangout than a laundry basket. And that's totally a Reader's Digest she's reading.
