So much for continuous posting for 30 days! Anyway I’m back and with a homemade ice cream recipe. You buy a bunch of bananas and as the days go by you realise they are ripening faster than you can eat them. What to do? Make some Chocolate chip banana ice cream.

For flavouring I decided to use vanilla beans mainly because I have them on hand, however you can omit them.  If you want you can add a pinch of cinnamon.
