Who doesn’t love a sweet treat to end a special holiday meal? I first came across this idea as the theme to a food truck and could not wait to replicate it at home. Get creative and try all types of fun toppings and combinations for this Frozen Banana Sundae.
- 4 frozen bananas
- 4 tablespoons crushed nuts
- ½ cup berries
- ½ cup coconut yogurt or whipped topping, optional
Place frozen bananas in a food processor or blender and blend for 2 to 5 minutes, or until everything comes together. It will start to appear crumbly at first but will eventually form a smooth, soft-serve consistency. If you’re using a blender, be careful not to blend so hard that the banana begins to heat and melt. Once the banana is well blended, place into an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours. Scoop the banana into four servings and top with even amount of nuts, berries and coconut topping, if you wish.
