  • Blend for two minutes, scraping the frozen banana off the blender’s sides from time to time.
  • Add 1 teaspoons vanilla extract and blend until mixed well.
  • The bananas will turn into a consistency similar to frozen custard.
  • Scrape into a serving dish and refreeze until solid.
  • Add toppings of choice.
