Passover is coming up fast and I know some of you are starting to look out for good recipes and to brainstorm meal plans. If you are indeed cooking for some of the meals (or maybe all of them?), you're probably about to purchase an enormous amount of potatoes and eggs... yeah? We're having the Seders at home so I'm looking forward to making my annual 8-trips-to-the-store-in-24-hours because I keep forgetting ingredients. I would loooove to hear your thoughts on how you're trying to keep things *really* simple to reduce stress and anxiety. What did you learn from last year that you're rethinking this year?
If you're looking for another staple ingredient besides potatoes, eggs, and matzah meal... I recommend bananas. I rarely make desserts from scratch, but I thought this one would be fun for the blog because all you need are bananas and almond milk to start. Have you ever made this? To make it kosher for Passover, instead of adding something like peanut butter, use a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder, a handful of chocolate chips, and/or mix in frozen strawberries.
Is this something you would make?
1-2 Tbsp Peanut Butter or Cocoa Powder
Chocolate chips (optional)
Slice the bananas into small chunks and place in a freezer-safe container. Freeze completely in the freezer for several hours or overnight. Once frozen, place the bananas in a food processor/blender. Add a few splashes of almond milk and 1 to 2 tbsp of peanut butter. Blend until the bananas look like a creamy ice cream without any chunks. Add more peanut butter (or almond milk) if desired. Serve immediately or place in the freezer covered until you're ready to serve.
Melt a few handfuls of chocolate chips in the microwave with a few splashes of almond milk. Take out the chocolate and mix around until the mixture is completely smooth. Melt a bit more/add more almond milk if necessary. Pour over individual cups of ice cream, or mix into the banana ice cream mixture and top with walnuts.
Serves 2-4 people. But it's easy to double or triple the recipe
