A long time ago (June) I tried to dupe the kids. They called me out. Big time.
Basically you cut up a bunch of bananas, freeze them, then use a food processor to chop them up, add whatever flavoring you'd like and it creates a pseudo-ice cream. I added peanut butter and cocoa powder and I thought it wasn't bad at all. I was actually surprised how good it tasted.
I told the kids to "come try this". I never said it was ice cream. These pictures were not staged. I pushed the bowls in front of them, waited, and snapped away at their first impressions.
(Look how excited Vaughn is here.)
I like how she gives it another try.
Poor Vaughnie. She loves, loves, loves ice cream. I think she had her hopes up because it looked so much like ice cream. Clearly, she was crushed.
(I wonder if it would have been better if I added frozen berries to it - like a pseudo sorbet? Hmmm...)
