Fruity Ice Cream

Boy is it hot outside!  I want something frozen to cool off.  I also want to increase my family's fruit and vegetable intake.  We've been making a fruit based frozen dessert.  Want to try it?  My kids and I love it but it's a little too healthy for my husband.

1/2 cup frozen banana chunks
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon sugar

I put all five ingredients in the blender.  I use a Ninja blender system that I love.  Thanks hubby for getting it for me for my last birthday!  Puree until it is the consistency of soft serve ice cream.  This makes one large serving or two small ones.  We were celebrating Independence Day when we made this batch of ice cream, so I sprinkled on some blueberries for a red, white, and blue effect.
