Our lease starts a few days after I need to move out, so I will be going home for a couple of days before we start living in the new place. Because of this, I wanted to minimize the amount of fresh and especially frozen foods I have left, so that it is easier to transport my things. When I discovered how our moving timing would be working out, I also discovered that I happened to have A LOT of frozen fruits and vegetables! While my meals have mainly involved cooking up a medley of frozen veggies (well..sometimes cooking.. does anyone else like to snack on their green peas while they are still frozen?) with whatever else I had left, the abundance of frozen bananas, as well as various other frozen fruits, meant that I got to experiment with a lot of different banana soft serves this week! Here are a few of the highlights:
Banana Soft Serve Extravaganza
Sour Cherry Banana Soft Serve - the tangy cherries and creamy banana were a really great combination!
Soy Milk Banana Soft Serve - I boiled my soy milk with some agar agar flakes before blending it with banana, freezing it, then re-blending, this gave it an amazing ice-cream-like texture!
Raspberry Banana Soft Serve - I boiled and then strained the raspberries of seeds before chilling them, so this one was very smooth!
Frozen Blueberry Banana Soft Serve - mmm, blueberries and banana go so well together! I used blueberries that had been frozen the day they were picked, so they were so tasty!
Mango Banana Soft Serve - a classic favourite, this was as delicious as always!
And finally.. for those of us who REALLY like our veggies.. (or who still have a lot of frozen peas left)..
Pea-Nana Soft Serve - this was actually pretty sweet! The texture was not as smooth as some of my soft-serves, but if you have a high-power blender you may be able to get a more creamy texture for it. I know it's a little out of the ordinary, but it's full of protein, iron, and vitamins, and I liked it! (although, I'm quite a fan of legumes, so try this only if you're feeling a little adventurous) :)
And with that, the last banana of my freezer is finished! See you after the move! :)
