Banana Ice Cream!

Ever since I saw on Pinterest how easy it was to make banana ice cream, I have been indulging in it on an almost daily basis. With just a frozen banana and some cocoa, the ingredients can’t get much easier, or healthier either!

The only issue I have is it’s a bit hard to blend. My grandmother gave me a Bosch mixer (she got mine at Wishful Kneads) for a wedding gift, and it works the best to blend the frozen bananas.

I have tried the little handheld milkshake mixers and they just don’t cut it. After a minute they start smelling like burning motor. So my suggestion, a really tough blender! You have to pulse the blender and scrap the banana down a few times, but it works, just keep at it!

After I made it a couple times with good success, the experimentation started. Raspberries and Strawberries go into it now on a regular basis. Also good to add when I need a little bit more sweetness is jam. Amazing!

Let me back up a bit and tell you all a little about my day!

First off I needed to work out! It has been awhile since I have done any toning, so in went the Turbo Sculpt DVD and after 30 minutes my muscles were shaking. Definitely need to repeat that a few more time throughout the next couple weeks.

Travis and I are attending a wedding tomorrow in which Travis is a groomsman. The husband to-be is Hindu, and so today we attended what, someone correct me if I am wrong here, was a Shree Ganeshaya Namah. This basically was a ceremony where the groom and his family had their priest bless the groom and the marriage. It was fascinating!

After we had some amazing traditional Indian cuisine, we thanked the hosts and went on our way. Tomorrow is the wedding day, and I am looking forward to how they are going to preform the ceremony!

Other than that ladies and gentlemen, not much went on today. We came home, changed, and worked in the yard. Travis worked on the sprinkler system, and I weeded the garden.

Hope you all had a fabulous day!

Have any of you had the opportunity to experience a wedding from a different culture?
