Making ice cream can be a laborious process, even when you have the right ingredients. But what if you only needed one? Introducing the easiest ice cream recipe! And what’s the one ingredient you need? Bananas! Grab well-ripened bananas and freeze them.
Then, take them out, let them thaw for a few minutes, and toss them in the blender with your favorite toppings. The plus? This “ice cream” is actually pretty healthy.
More Uses For Your Egg Slicer
Sometimes food and kitchen hacks are very obvious and other times, they require thinking a little outside the box...or the egg. Did you think the egg slicer sitting in your drawer was just for slicing hard-boiled eggs? Think again!
An egg slicer is far more versatile than you may have realized and can be used to slice strawberries, mushrooms, and probably any other sliceable food you could think of.
Taco Salad Bowls
If you are looking for a way to enliven your taco salads, why not make an edible tortilla bowl? Grab some tin foil and shape it into a large ball, then take a large, flour tortilla and lay it over the ball so the edges surround it (you can also use a cake pan to lay the tortilla across).
You then simply bake the tortilla until crisp and there you have it! A homemade, edible tortilla bowl for your taco salad.
Microwave Potato Chips
Did you know you can make potato chips in your microwave? Slice your potatoes very thin then briefly soak and rinse them in cold water. After drying the slices, sprinkle on your favorite seasonings and then microwave them on full power for 3 minutes.
Then, flip them over and microwave for half power for another 3 minutes. Remove the chips that are already crips and then microwave the rest for 1-minute intervals.
Hull Strawberries Easily
Strawberries are one of the most delicious fruits but removing the leaves at the top can be a pain. But a straw can take some of the labor out of the process for you. Take your sturdy plastic straw and place it at the bottom of the strawberry.
Then, push the straw through the strawberry from bottom to top, removing the leaves. It sure makes sense why they’re called “strawberries” now.
