Another Pinterest Adventure

Another day, another adventure in Pinterest recipe attempts.

I recently pinned a recipe that guaranteed the creamiest, most delicious ice cream made from nothing but frozen bananas.  I have to admit, I sort of called BS, but I can't resist a recipe that sounds too good to be true in the ratio of nutrition-deliciousness.

This started with 2 slightly over-ripe bananas (frozen), about 2 teaspoons of all natural peanut butter, about a teaspoon of honey, and about a teaspoon of cocoa powder.
Puree it all together in a blender.
I found out that my blender sucks, so after some choice words and punching the thing like an ape, I added a few splashes of vanilla soy milk to get the bananas broken up.  Use your own judgement on whether you need to add that step.

And, this is what it looked like.
 I added some chocolate chips in at the very end and pulsed it a few times just to break them up slightly.

Guys, I have to admit, this stuff is amaze.
It had the texture of creamy soft serve, and the flavor of the richest ice cream-I literally loved it.
The only thing I will say is that it is the best right when it's made.  I froze what I didn't eat and it wasn't nearly as tasty the second day around.  
So, damn it, I guess you'll just have to eat it all!
