Plus, what kid (or adult) wouldn't like a creamy dessert for snack time or even breakfast? They can, with this easy frozen banana "ice cream" recipe. 

If you’re like me, you might have a few bananas going south on your counter. Fear not! They are still usable in this delicious breakfast ice cream recipe.

I make this all the time for my husband and I. We eat it as a snack at night. Sometimes I'll add chocolate chips, peanut butter or something else sweet into it. I've even added frozen strawberries and mango. Good stuff! Never thought about having it for breakfast, but it makes perfect sense. Thanks for sharing, Dr. Jamie Krenn!
