Frozen Blueberry Dream

I really like ice cream. When I am trying to remain virtuous, I tend to get pretty creative. Tonight I had an inspiration: I always keep frozen blueberries on hand because they are really delicious. I also usually have one or two sliced bananas in the freezer, because they are great in protein drinks or smoothies. Here is what I came up with:

Combine in food processor or blender:

1 cup frozen blueberries
5-6 slices frozen bananas
¾ cup milk
1 TBSP maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)

Blend until smooth and consistent. Serve immediately. Makes two sensible or one awesome portion.

Another insane thing to do with frozen blueberries is this:

Put berries in deep cup or parfait glass
Drizzle with maple syrup or honey (not much)
Cover with whipping cream (not whipped) or half & half

Wait about 10 minutes (this is the hard part). The berries will freeze the syrup and cream into an unholy blast of deliciousness. Dig in. 

If this doesn't keep you from running out to Dairy Queen, then you are hopeless.
