Banana Cream satisfies the need for something cool and creamy while providing much-needed potassium. You can customize this recipe by adding a frozen fresh peach or ¼ cup frozen berries.
6 very ripe bananas
½ cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds
3 tablespoons cold water or orange juice
1. Peel the bananas and freeze. (They can be left overnight, or put them in the freezer in the morning to prepare in the evening.)
2. Put the frozen bananas in a food processor or blender and quickly puree, adding water or juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the bananas are the consistency of ice cream. Divide into 4 portions, sprinkle with nuts, and serve immediately.
