It looks naughty... but it's healthy!

 One ingredient, super easy to make, banana ice-cream

One of the items on our Easter Holiday List was "make ice-cream".  A quick internet search revealed a plethora of no-machine ice-cream recipes, but this one really caught my eye.

I found it here, on  Yes, it's true!  Ice-cream made using only bananas!

First, chop the bananas, it doesn't matter how roughly.  Bug did ours. 
Put the bananas into the freezer for a couple of hours.  
Then stick them in the blender and blend them.  This turns them into frozen banana puree/cream.
At this point you can add extra ingredients like honey, peanut butter, raisins or mini-marshmallows.
Put the banana ice-cream in a bowl and back into the freezer to set a bit further.
I also froze a Mars bar, and roughly chopped this, served on top of the banana cream.  It makes what looks like a very decadent dessert, but is actually one of your five-a-day, with 1/4 of a Mars bar added!
We didn't actually let the bananas freeze for long enough, as I had forgotten to chop and freeze them before we went to the recycle centre, so ours ended up more like chilled banana puree, but it was still very, very tasty and met with approval all round, so this is certainly something we'll be making again.
