In case, like us, you have a lot of bananas and looking for something different.
This first recipe comes from one of our Facebook friends
Strawberry/Banana Freezer Jam
4 cups of mashed fruit ... for the strawberry banana i use 4 bananas and about 3 cups of strawberries ... 1 and a half cups of sugar or can use splenda ... 1 pouch of the Bernardin freezer jam mix .... stir and bottle or for freezer jam you can use any tightly sealed container and keep in the freezer for a year or fridge for a month.
Freezer jam is great to reuse things like pasta sauce jars as they don't need to be sealed ... commercial jars can explode when doing hot cooked jam or pickles.

3 INGREDIENT, NO CHURN VANILLA ICE CREAM
CREAMY 3-INGREDIENT, NO CHURN CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM
This recipe is made to be a little less sweet than most traditional recipes, as it only uses about 1/4 the amount of sweetened condensed milk when compares to most recipes out there. You'll get plenty of sugar-rush from the chocolate syrup, but if you've got a sweet tooth, then add a little more sweetened condensed milk if you like. We enjoy eating the ice cream about 4-5 hours after it's frozen because it's still slightly soft. Next day is great too. But the longer you freeze it, the more firm and icy it can become. So if it's been freezing for a few days, allow it to soften a bit at room temperature so it becomes easier to scoop.
Rinse and drain both cans of beans in a colander. Let the excess water drain as you prepare the vegetables.
Finely dice the bell pepper, tomatoes, jalapeño, and red onion. Try to dice the vegetables into pieces that are roughly the same size as the beans. For a less spicy salad, scrape the seeds out of the jalapeño before dicing. Roughly chop the cilantro. Place the drained beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, and cilantro in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, 2 Tbsp of juice from the lime, balsamic vinegar, chili powder, cumin, salt, and sugar. Pour the dressing over the salad, then stir until everything is well coated. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to eat.
*This chili powder is a mild blend of chiles and other spices.
