      Salted caramel - transfer the blended frozen banana to a container and, swirl in the almond butter, sprinkle a pinch of coarse sea salt on top.

    Notes

    Good kitchen hack - permanently keep frozen bananas in your freezer! Very ripe bananas are the best for freezing and using later for making ice cream, smoothies, or banana bread. Grab a bunch of overripened ones that are on sale, pill them off, and cut them into chunks. Store in the freezer in a (glass) container for up to 6 months.
