My family ate ice cream daily as I grew up. But Ben and Jerry's was special...only for "grown ups" only because it was so rich (according to mom and dad); therefore, my siblings and I couldn't have any (I'm not saying this makes any sense). If we were good, we might get a spoonful or two. As a result, Ben and Jerry's was always put on a pedestal on the hierarchy of ice creams.
Of course now I'm a "grown up," so I can eat all the Ben and Jerry's to my
heart's belly's content, hehe.
Chef Uy: I'm eating Chunky Monkey now.
B: You're my chunky monkey!
Chef Uy: Ok, you're my Chubby Hubby then!
He doesn't like his nickname as much, for some reason. I think it's hitting close to home, hehe.
Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey
2-3 frozen bananas
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chunks
Puree the bananas and milk with a blender until smooth. Pour into ice cream maker and churn according to directions.
For those without an ice cream maker, pour into a large flat container and freeze until desired consistency (about 5 hours). Every half hour, stir the ice cream with a whisk to break up ice crystals to reduce iciness.
Add the walnuts and chocolate chunks once ice cream is churned. Enjoy!
