Banana Croquette Ice Cream — New Take on KY comfort food.

Banana whips are all the rage here in the Northeast.  Thanks to Rachel Ray I know that they are basically frozen banana’s blended in a food processor.  So easy!!!! Just slice up banana’s and freeze them.  Place the sliced frozen banana’s in a food processor and process until creamy.  A quick and healthy ice cream treat by themselves.  Well I took this idea to the next level!!!My Mammaw used to fix Banana Croquettes every Christmas.  I loved! LOVED! LOVED these things.   Most people have never heard of them and look at me weird when I get excited about them.  I have tried to recreate them many many times only to be disappointed.  A couple of weeks ago I came across a KY blog that talked about the differnt variation of the banana croquette.  I was so happy to find so many kindred spirits and lot of recipes.  Check out:  http://flavorsofkentucky.bloginky.com/2008/10/15/more-banana-croquette-stories/ if you too love banana croquettes.

I took the idea of banana whips and married it to banana croquettes and here is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy this special treat as much as I do!!

  • 1 cup Peanuts (honey rosted or salted)

Directions

Step 1
Slice bananas into 1 inch pieces and freezer in a single layer so they will be easy to add to the food processor.
Step 2
Mix flour, sugar and salt. Stir in vinegar and milk. Heat until it bubbles, then temper and stir in a well beaten egg. Heat for about 2 minutes, then add butter. When butter is melted and mixed in, syrup is ready. Place syrup in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.
Step 3
Once your banana's are completely frozen and your syrup mixture is completely cooled. Place Frozen banana's in a food processor with the syrup and the peanuts. YOu may have to work in batches if your food processor is small. Blend until creamy and smoothy.

ENJOY!!
