- 2 cups bananas, mashed
- 1 can pineapples
- 2 cups unsweetened orange juice
- 2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
- Chopped cherries
- Chopped nuts
- Mash the bananas in a bowl freezer safe mixing bowl.
- Add in pineapples, juices and cherries (if you’re adding them).
- Place in freezer until it’s almost firm.
- When it’s almost firm (not frozen), put the mixture into a blender and chop until it has the texture you desire. We did ours somewhere between an ice cream and pudding. haha. If you blend too long, it will thaw too much, no worries! Just stick it back in the freezer for a bit!
- Spoon into cups or bowls and serve.
