How to freeze bananas

Freeze the bananas on a metal baking sheet. Spread out in a single layer, for 4-6 hours, or until completely hard. Transfer to a plastic bag to store until you’re ready to make the ice cream, or just transfer to a blender.

How to make Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

In a high powered blender, combine the frozen bananas, vanilla, peanut butter, cocoa powder, milk, and a generous pinch of salt.

Use a tamper to keep the ice cream blending, as it will be thick. If the mixture needs more liquid, add 1 Tbsp of milk at a time as needed.

When the ice cream is thick and creamy, scoop into bowls and serve!

A Life with Meaning

We are in the habit of hospitality. For 30 years my husband and I have made it a priority to have all sorts of people over. I mean all sorts … people we meet through others, through church, our neighbors, old friends—new friends. Family and … we’re pretty much open to all sorts of hospitality!

A Life with Meaning

And then I realized

that in order

to live

a life

of purpose

and meaning,

I had to live

my life

with purpose

and meaning.

Chasing habits

instead of

lost promises. – Ronald L. Banks
