Frugal Friday Tip: Banana "Ice Cream"

As two broke gals, Shelle and I try to save money wherever we can.  Although that's certainly easier said than done, one of the ways we've been able to save the most is by only buying the food that we're sure we'll use.  Overall, I'd call our efforts a success, but sometimes those pesky bananas throw us off.  They may be green in the store, and brown by the time we get them home; under-ripe one day and totally overripe the next!  What's a broke gal to do?

Let's just say we've eaten a lot of banana bread.

As good as our banana bread is (and we're not kidding, we'll share the recipe sometime), it gets old after awhile.  And now that it's June, sometimes we just don't want to turn on the oven.  Sometimes something light and cold does just the trick.  And we have just the thing for you!

Thanks to Pinterest, we recently discovered's recipe for an ice cream-like dish made out of bananas!  We highly recommend you check out the post here:

It certainly didn't disappoint!  We made a peanut butter flavored "ice cream" with chopped up peanut butter cups folded in, and a nutella flavored "ice cream" with chocolate chips folded in.  Yum!

I think we've found a new way to use up bananas and we won't go even more broke spending all our money at ice cream stands!
