Ice cream for breakfast!!

Who says you can't have ice cream for breakfast? :) This blender ice cream is perfect to eat with muffins or pancakes in the morning. It's closely related to a smoothie, but it has the consistency of a milkshake. I really love it, and it's one of Brian's favorites. Besides, it's a perfect recipe in honor of June dairy month!

Blender Ice Cream

2 c. milk
1-3 T. honey
1/2 t. vanilla
1 t. lemon juice
1 large frozen banana
1-2 c. frozen fruit, slightly thawed (such as berries, peaches or apricots

Put ingredients into blender, with banana in broken pieces. Pulse, then blend on high until thick. Add more frozen fruit if you want it thicker.

  1. You can also omit lemon juice and add orange juice concentrate in place of fresh fruit if you don't have any on hand. Add vanilla and it has a kind of creamsicle with banana taste. Also works well with yogurt instead of milk.
