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.

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!!
Banana Croquette Ice Cream
- 4 Bananas (Sliced and frozen)
- 2 tablespoons Flour
- 3 tablespoons Sugar
- 1/4 cup Vinegar
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- 1 cup Peanuts (honey rosted or salted)
|Slice bananas into 1 inch pieces and freezer in a single layer so they will be easy to add to the food processor.|
|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.|
|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. |
