With bananas it’s simple to do and bananas are not only delicious, but good for you. They are packed with potassium. We all need potassium.
A banana is an edible fruit, botanically a berry, produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. Wikipedia
Peel your bananas ahead of time and put them in the freezer (ziploc bag). After they have had time to freeze, take them out and run them through your Omega juicer. Use the blank cone that came with the juicer and not the juicing screen. After you’ve run the bananas through it’s time to enjoy your sorbet. Fresh from the juicer is best!
Try this: between bananas, run a fresh frozen strawberry through the juicer for a banana strawberry dessert. Delicious!
Here’s a recipe right from the manual:
Banana Sorbet- Banana Berry
2 or 3 bananas (peeled)
6 to 12 berries (no stems)
Place items in a zip lock bag. Place items in the freezer overnight. It is helpful to cut the bananas into smaller pieces before freezing. Place the frozen pieces into the juicer. The result is an ice cream or frozen yogurt-type dessert. You may run the items through multiple times to increase the creaminess.
Have you tried adding plain yogurt?
