'Ave a Banana'! 2 uber quick puds for all

Bananas are only in our house for a few days at the beginning of the week, the kids just love them! So I always plan some early week banana puddings before they all go!
Here are 2 great recipes Quick Banana Ice-Cream and Quick Banana and Cinnamon Pud, both can literally be made in 5 mins! I have often already sat the kids down to their main course before embarking on the pud!
Quick Banana Ice-Cream
This recipe comes from Good Food Magazine and is soooooo easy
When you buy bananas remember to buy a few extra, peel them, break or chop into chunks and pop into the freezer.
4 bananas
Rice milk or cows milk
Xylitol/Agave Nectar or Unrefined Caster Sugar
Using a blender or Food processor, pop the chopped up frozen banana in with 4 tbsp of banana and tbsp of sweetener. Whizz and then taste and add more milk or sweetener to get the desired consistency and flavour. Then serve and pour over some chocolate sauce or toffee sauce. Any spare is popped into the freezer in a plastic tub and my boys love this for breakfast too!
Quick Banana and Cinnamon Pud
2 Bananas (I usually make 1 banana per child)
Knob of butter
handful of raisins or sultanas
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Into a saucepan or small frying pan, pop the butter on medium heat and throw in the bananas once the butter had melted. Gently cook for a few minutes and then add the fruit and cinnamon. Serve with custard, ice-cream or just on it's own.......yuuuummmmmy!
Please do let me know any of your banana recipes!
