Begin by peeling and slicing the ripe bananas and placing them on a non-stick metal baking sheet for easy freezing.  Place in the freezer for about six to eight hours to ensure that the banana pieces are frozen solid.  Once frozen, banana pieces can be loosened from the metal sheet with a plastic spatula and stored in the freezer in a tightly sealed plastic container for about a month. 

We wash the dried apricots just before making the banana cream.

Prepare the banana cream in a high powered blender, such as a Vita-Mix

Place the dried apricots and frozen banana pieces in the blender container.  Cover, and run at the highest speed until the fruit becomes creamy smooth (about one minute).  To ensure uniform consistency, use the tamper to work the fruit into the blades.  (Do this only with the cover firmly in place.)

Scoop the banana cream with apricot pieces into individual serving bowls.  Serve "as is" or with your favorite topping.



The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-28)
