Coconut Banana Ice Cream

Happy April Reasons to Skip the Housework friends!! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. Hope you all are enjoying spring & the the glorious sunshine! Because it’s spring I’m definitely feeling like spending less time in the kitchen & lightening up the menu a little bit. How about you?? But because I have such a sweet tooth I am trying to find new ways to still feel like I’m getting my little treats when I need them. I’m sure you all have seen the fabulous idea of making ice cream out of frozen bananas. Genius! Because it really does taste like ice cream, right?! But sometimes I want other flavors too – which means I start throwing other things in the blender with the bananas. When that happens- sometimes I come up with something I can’t live without. This Toasted Coconut Banana Ice Cream is one of those things.

    1. Christie, I had deactivated my Zip List plugin while I updated it. You seriously were there for the one small window that I had it deactivated! It’s there now! Sorry about that!
