Banana Vanilla Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce
Pureeing frozen bananas lets you enjoy a frosty, creamy treat without the assistance of an ice cream maker. To freeze bananas, peel them and slice into thirds; freeze them in an airtight bag or container. Using boiling water to make a chocolate sauce is a trick borrowed from backpackers who crave fondue in the backcountry. Extra chocolate sauce will harden upon sitting. It can be softened by stirring in additional hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until smooth.
