Frozen bananas rival soft serve when given a whirl in the food processor. No cholesterol and no added sugar, just creamy and sweet bananas!

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 peeled frozen bananas, sliced


Tips

You MUST use a food processor or a high-speed blender for this recipe; a regular blender will not blend the bananas thoroughly enough.


Directions

Place frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times to break into smaller pieces, then turn on and run for about five minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. The bananas will start to resemble soft serve in a few minutes. Transfer to a bowl and place in freezer for about 15 minutes, if you'd like, or serve immediately.

I topped mine with a tablespoon of pure maple syrup mixed with 2 t dark cocoa powder (calories not included).
(Makes four 1/2 cup servings)

    I needed something for desert for a small dinner party. I did not have time to go to the store but had frozen bananas for banana bread. I added almond extract and a little vanilla. It was FABULOUS!! Creamy and delicious! My guest were impressed. I also sprinkled a bit of chocolate on top! WHO KNEW?? - 7/15/09

    This is an amazing recipe! So far, I've tried it plain and blended with frozen raspberries. The combinations are endless!

    Before I freeze the bananas, I cut them into chunks. I found that the mixture gets a bit 'dry', so I add a bit of water to help with the blending.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I add 1tbsp of cocoa (per serving) and a splash of soymilk. It makes beautiful chocolate "ice cream" for about 145 calories! - 7/21/09
