Extend the life of your bananas…………..

Keep your bananas yellow longer by pulling them apart into single-banana units and covering each stem in plastic wrap or foil. The wrap helps contain the naturally-producing ethylene gas to the stem end of the fruit. Otherwise, it would spread to the whole banana and accelerate the ripening.

Keep Bananas longer………

Keep bananas fresh for longer by wrapping the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. Better yet, separate each banana. Both tactics block ethylene gases from releasing out of the stem, thereby ripening the fruit too fast.

Avocado Ice Cream
Looking to get your green on for St. Patrick’s Day? You’ll love this emerald-colored homemade ice cream treat. Featuring a creamy avocado base sweetened with bananas, it requires just a few easy steps to prepare.

Ingredients
3 ripe avocados
3 medium bananas, peeled, chopped and frozen
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup favorite unsweetened milk (e.g. cow’s, almond, cashew, etc.); can add 1 tablespoon at a time in addition as needed
Optional sweeteners and add-ins (see below)

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: 1/2 cup

1. Cut avocados in half, remove pits, and scrape out the edible flesh into a food processor.

2. Add frozen banana pieces and vanilla extract to food processor. Tip: Peel and slice ripe bananas and keep in freezer to have prefrozen and on hand.

3. Process ingredients together until the mixture is smooth. Splash with milk as needed to soften the mixture. You may need to stop processing and scrape the edges a time or two.

4. Once smooth, lightly mix optional add-ins. (Read on for tasty flavor combinations!)

5. Serve and enjoy, or freeze until use. Once frozen, the ice cream may need to be thawed prior to serving.

*Note: Nutrition per serving using unsweetened vanilla almond milk without optional flavor add-ins.

Optional flavor add-ins
Chocolate Mint – Use fresh mint or mint extract for a soothing ice cream product. Mix in a few dark chocolate chips or cocoa nibs for the ultimate mint chocolate concoction!

Berry Cool – Mix in or top avocado ice cream with fresh or frozen berries. Blueberries, strawberries and blackberries are “berry” cool ice cream contenders!

Citrus – Squeeze fresh lemon or orange juice into ice cream for an invigorating, citrusy flavor.

Hawaiian – For an extra-tropical treat, mix fresh or canned pineapple into ice cream. Top with shredded coconut and macadamia nuts for added crunch.

Pumpkin Spice – The spicy flavors of pumpkin pie meet the freshness of ice cream! Blend canned pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg in food processor with avocado mixture. Top with toasted pecans for a light crunch.

Nutty Monkey – Mix in natural peanut butter, sliced bananas and chopped peanuts for a treat that not only monkeys will love!

Peaches ‘n Cream – Enjoy the freshness of ripe peaches by adding them into this creamy treat.
