Three ripe bananas were sitting in our fruit basket, taunting me with options. Should I make banana muffins? How about sour cream banana pancakes? Banana Crumble was a huge hit around here… maybe I should use these ripe bananas to make that recipe. Undecided, I went about my business for the day, still stewing about how the bananas should be used.
It’s funny how sometimes ideas come from above. I was putting away a favorite cookbook I had recently used and as I was reaching for the top shelf of our pantry, where I keep the books, I lost my balance and the book dropped… hitting me in the head, falling to the ground and opening up to a picture and recipe that solved my ripe banana dilemma.
Banana Gelato from one of my favorite cookbook’s, Seasons & Celebrations (recipes and menus from Relish Magazine), was just the answer I was looking for. Although I had never had Banana Gelato, I figured “who can go wrong with bananas and ice cream?”
This sweet, creamy, full of flavor Gelato is the perfect solution to your ripe banana dilemma. Save yourself a knock in the head and try it today!
