This week's featured chef is Dave Lieberman. I changed my mind about which recipe I was making about 18,000 times. There were so many to choose from. I started out making the Cranberry, Apple, Ginger Chutney which morphed into something entirely different. Same thing with the Hearty Chicken Stew. I think the only thing I used were the main ingredients and the recipe's title. So we did a "kids in the kitchen" with his Creamy Banana Pops....and only changed it a little bit.
Peeling the mushy bananas. Not a job for the squeamish.Creamy Banana Pops
Recipe courtesy Dave Lieberman
2 medium bananas, very ripe (we used 3)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups whole milk (used a little bit more cream and 2% milk, and some leftover whole milk plain yogurt)
1/3 cup superfine sugar (regular granulated sugar)
Special equipment: 5-ounce paper cups
Wooden ice cream sticks
In a large bowl, mash the bananas very well with a potato masher or a sturdy whisk until almost lump free. You should have about 1 cup mashed. Whisk in remaining ingredients until fully incorporated. (I put everything in the blender and blended until the sugar was dissolved - 4 minutes, just to be sure)
Protecting the blender. Can you spot the button pushing villain?
Bad picture. Good Eats.
If this is any indication if we will make it again.....everyone wanted seconds :)
