It’s totally easy to make too.  All you need are bananas, a food processor and I added a dollop of honey, which you really don’t need to do at all.  I just wanted a sweeter flavor.

First, slice your bananas.  I used 5 bananas and it produced about 3 1/3 cups of ice cream.  Slice them in small chunks and place them on a baking tray.  Freeze the banana slices for 1-2 hours.

If you like a more frozen consistency, place the banana ice cream into an air-tight container and put it in the freezer.  It’ll become harder and more like ice cream.
