Xander saw this "recipe" on PBS Kids (I think it was Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) and wanted to try it, so we did. You will need: 2 bananas (or really as many as you wish), a blender.
Be sure to write that down so you don't forget anything.
Here's the how-to. First, you peel and cut your bananas
Xander actually did a great job cutting the bananas. He sliced right through them and didn't "saw" them like I expected. I sawed things until I was 26, so I was pretty proud of the guy.
Next step - put the slices in a freezer-safe baggie, and put them in the freezer.
You sticking with me so far? I know, totally complicated.
Here's where it gets fun. You wait at least 20 minutes (we set a timer because he was so excited and wanted to know exactly when it had been time), then get the bananas out. Then - you blend them up. Add nothing. So easy.
|Try not to be alarmed at the loud noise of the blender.|
Then - you put it in a bowl and eat it!
Xander liked it. I think next time we'll wait longer than 20 minutes to let the bananas freeze, though. The consistency was a bit too. . . soft. But still - fun little activity if you've got sleeping toddlers and an older brother to entertain!
