  1. Slice fresh bananas and freeze in the freezer for 2-3 hours, or use already frozen bananas.
  2. Let frozen bananas thaw for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine frozen bananas and frozen blueberries within the blender.
  4. To open the vanilla bean, slide carefully down the middle and scrape innards into the blender with a knife.
  5. Blend until pureed, but not too long or the heat from the blender will begin to melt the ingredients.
  6. Serve as is, or freeze to reharden it for a more thicker texture.
