Banana Ice Cream

Who is ready for Labor Day weekend? My son, Zachary has been excited about this weekend for quite some time. I gave him a surprise gift for his birthday in January-a voucher saying we are headed to the US Open in New York this year for Labor Day weekend 2015. We will be back late Sunday and Monday, my mother-in-law, Rosemary, is having us for a wonderful dinner. Rosemary makes homemade ice cream for every holiday (except Christmas) and most family celebrations. She gave us her core ice cream recipe, so we’ve been making some on our own (see my Oreo Ice Cream here). We recently made this Banana Ice Cream with some overripe bananas we had on hand, and it came out AMAZING! This is a wonderful and easy Labor Day dessert recipe idea. Serve with vanilla wafers or any of your favorite toppings (although it does not need any). Happy Labor Day weekend. Have a fun, relaxing and very safe one!
