Banana Ice cream

4 bananas
1 t runny honey
juice half an orange
1/4 c toasted coconut (optional), toasted in 200°C pre heated oven, for 5 to 10 mins until golden brown
1. Peel your bananas, slice them into 2cm slices, place in a supermarket bag and freeze over night
2. Remove bananas from freezer
3. Place in a food processor, with honey and orange juice and whiz until blended. Scrape mixture out into a plastic container and re freeze for an hour
4. Scoop out into bowls, sprinkle with toasted coconut and serve with fresh fruit salad, or in an ice cream cone or as an ice cream sandwich with wafers

Roasted Banana Ice Cream
3 ripe bananas
1/3 C sugar (preferably brown sugar) + 2 T regular white sugar
1 T butter
1 t vanilla essence
1 C milk
½ C fresh cream (chilled)
1 ½ t lemon juice
½ t salt
½ t cinnamon powder
1/8 C raisins soaked in 2 T dark rum
Peel the bananas and cut into 1 inch chunks. In a glass baking dish take the banana pieces and brown sugar, and toss with the butter. Bake for 40 minutes (preheated to 400F/200C), till browned, turning just once in the middle of the baking process.
Remove the contents of the baking dish into a mixing bowl. Add the all the other ingredients except raisins, and blend to a smooth puree. Mix in the raisins and any nuts, if using, and pour into an ice cream maker to set in the fridge.
To serve, scoop into bowls and top with roasted cashews and a sauce of choice, if desired.
The syrupy sauce made during the baking process is great – just be sure to adjust quantities to make extra.

peel, halve and dry them.

I freeze them in the skins.The skins go black, but no problem with the banana inside.I prefer them this way - then I can get out how many I want to use - instead of the whole lot frozen together.

Peel and cut in half crossways, put a popsicle stick in the cut half and freeze.Children love them; they have the taste and texture of ice cream.
