Banana and meringue ice cream

I have a confession to make...........I ate the cookies and ice cream dessert four nights in a row.......oh and I had two portions each night as well...oops. Well you can't say I don't thoroughly test my recipes can you.

I came up with another dessert last week as I had some little meringues that didn't make the grade for the pavlova canapes. They were transformed in 2 minutes into this icecream. Just softly whip 500ml double cream with vanilla extract and 50g caster sugar. Mash up a coupleof bananas and bash your meringue into little pieces. Mix your banana and meringue through the cream and then just throw the whole lot in the freezer in a shallow dish. It's ready to eat in about 30 minutes. It doesn't really keep because it's not a true ice cream and goes icy (okay I confess ours didn't last anyway..........but I reckon it would go icy)
