The weather is getting warmer, and that means ice cream! The best part? You only need one ingredient. Freeze those bananas, blend in a food processor, and then grab a spoon.

Banana Salsa

We know what you’re thinking – what is banana doing in salsa? It’s better if the bananas are super brown for this one, so they hold up with the other ingredients. There’s even an option to add peppers for spice and peanuts for some extra crunch.
