Yup, that's right. Two ingredients. You did not read that wrong. And for the record, neither of those two ingredients are cream or sugar. Mindblown yet? How about if I tell you that you don't even need an ice cream maker? Oh yeah. Now we're talking.
This miracle ice cream, as I like to call it, only requires strawberries, bananas, and a food processor. It's as simple as freezing your fruits for an hour or two, until they're frozen solid, and then blending them together in the food processor until you achieve a perfect, soft-serve consistency ice cream. That's all there is to it.
If you prefer a firmer ice cream, you can just pop it in the freezer for an additional hour or so. And voila! Ice cream just as delicious as the one you buy from the store, except it's all natural, there's no added sugar, and it's significantly cheaper. Oh, and my favorite part: it's guilt-free!
P.S. This doesn't necessarily have to be a strawberry banana ice cream. It could be a banana ice cream. Or a peanut butter banana ice cream. Or a chocolate banana ice cream. Not a fan of bananas? Throw in some vanilla extract and you've got yourself some vanilla soft-serve. This recipe (if I can even call it that), is super adaptable to your tastes, so be creative! :)

Directions:Peel and slice banana. Place on a freezer safe plate in a single layer, along with chopped strawberries, and freeze for an hour or two.
