Do you have a sweet tooth? I really do. I can guarantee that by 8pm, I'm questioning why I don't revert to the days when pudding was acceptable after dinner, every day...
So trying not to give in, I remembered recently that someone had shared a recipe for banana ice-cream online, so I got searching! (5 a day and all that) There are loads of great recipes but this time I wanted a healthier option.
I found it! I'd love to claim the credit for this amazing treat but I can't. TheKitchn have mastered it! High five to them!
Get this, banana ice cream, using one ingredient! 🤔 Have you guessed what it is yet? 😉 Yup Bananas!! You can't get much healthier than that!
I decided to give it a go and get ahead with a sweet fix to quench my 8pm sweetness pangs.
This is easy peasy, even I can do it and I managed to toast crumpets into ashes the other day! (I'll add the pic for your entertainment)
This is a winner! One ingredient, easy and delicious, I love it!
I ate mine sprinkled with some of my homemade granola and ate the lot (Quite possibly two normal portions 😉) There is already more sliced banana in my freezer and this time I think I'll try adding some crunchy peanut butter!
You have no excuses, well unless you don't like bananas, so get it made!

Ps: here's my effort at toasting crumpets, I told you my Recipe Room page is also for culinary diasters! (Not quite culinary I know, but still amusing)
You know when you get a bee in your bonnet? Yesterday mine was my kitchen cupboards. Yep I know, not the most exciting blog topic but stay with me because a grey day in the lakes encouraged me get on with it!
It was one of those jobs I wished I'd never started but I'll admit I felt somewhat cleansed afterwards and it seemed sweeter when it resulted in me rustling up some home made granola with my findings!
The bulk of my cupboard foraging came from Christmas ingredients! Already feeling wasteful, there was no way I was just going to throw it all away so here's my recipe for granola using things I actually had in my cupboard!
My recipe filled two Kilner jars (the 7inch tall ones) and I had a small bowl to nibble on (obviously) It's yummy! I've looked online and I think it should keep for around two months because the fruit is dried but you may want to research it for yourself! And I dont honestly think it's going to last that long.
I've so far eaten this as a snack, for breakfast with milk and fresh fruit, and with my homemade banana ice cream! Recipe to come! It's nice when you can actually rustle something up from the depths of your cupboards!
