When I was a kid, my favorite cake was the rainbow chip kind. It was just sprinkles in the boxed cake mix, but I loved it. I know now that it’s all the same, and that you can’t really taste the sprinkles that are baked in the cake (although, full disclosure: I don’t know when the last time I had a rainbow chip cake was.)

Since then, I’ve had a think for birthday cake and cake batter flavored things. Truffles, cookies, ice cream. Especially ice cream.
Unfortunately, ice cream is not one of those things you can eat every day, although some days I would argue that point.

So you have to compromise. With bananas.

Yes, bananas. They make amazing ice cream, all by themselves. But what if you add some flavorings? A bit of vanilla extract, a drop of almond extract, and oh I don’t know, some sprinkles? It’s like a cake batter ice cream. Made from bananas. How does that work again?

It’s simple. Slice your bananas, freeze them until solid. Put them in your food processor with whatever you want to flavor it with, and blend. That’s pretty much it. You can eat as much as you want of this, because, well, bananas. If you’ve never tried this before, and you like bananas (yeah, you kind of have to like bananas, sorry banana haters) try it. Now.
