  • Blend: Place bananas and rosemary into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth. You may need to add additional water, so start by adding in 1/4 cup increments until you get the desired consistency. You may want to add a squeeze of lemon juice to prevent it from browning.
