  1. Peel bananas and discard peels. Cut bananas into ½-inch thick slices or cubes then wrap them in a piece of plastic wrap and freeze until frozen solid.
  2. When ready to prepare the soft serve dessert, remove the banana slices from the freezer, unwrap the plastic wrap and place the frozen banana slices in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and the remaining ingredients. Process the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If mixture is too thick add a few drops of almond milk. If mixture is too thin, add some ice cubes and re-blend until smooth but stiffer.
  3. Divide mixture into two individual serving bowls and serve immediately.
  4. Optional: Sprinkle with a choice of chopped nuts, sunflower seeds, pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds) or dark chocolate chips as garnish.

*Note: If your child is allergic to nuts substitute sunflower seed butter or ricotta cheese in place of the nut butter. Pour any un-eaten leftovers into empty compartments of an ice cube tray and freeze. Pop out later and serve as Popsicle cubes in a glass of cold organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk (such as Pacific Brand) or if allergic to nuts, use an oat, rice, or hemp milk instead. Garnish with a sprinkling of unsweetened cocoa powder and add a decorative straw and a spoon to the glass.
