If you're looking for healthy and refreshing, this is it! I had never frozen a banana before and a potato masher would only go through partially frozen bananas, but if you catch them just before they are done freezing, it's ideal. I think next time I'll try adding chocolate sauce swirls, just to negate the fact that it's healthy! Made for Zaar's Newest Tag.

Excellent! This satisfies any dessert cravings in a healthy way. Yummy. I think I will run my frozen bananas through the food processor next time to get the texture even creamier. Thank you!

cut very thin slices of a banana, freeze the slices, and throw in a food processor until the banana starts whipping up. You are going to have to scrape the sides like 4 times but the end result is creamy like real banana ice cream!!! try it!

WOW, wow, wow! This recipe is just awesome! I cannot believe that one can make banana ice-cream that is creamy, thick and sinfully delicious just like that at home! Its so cool! Ill be making this often trying out different add-ins and flavour combinations. :)
Like Prose I had to thaw my bananas a bit before being able to mash them, but I found that crushing them between my fingers (in a plastic bag) worked wonderfully.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true keeper with us, Syd!

I love this!!! DD (toddler) liked it a lot as well. Raw is what I was looking for & simple too. Doesn't this little recipe just fit?!! I used Mindelicious' idea and topped with pistachio nuts that looked lovely green on top as you can see in her picture. I think next time I will do exactly the same as her and add sliced bananas. This time I added fresh blueberries but it didn't really go.. I will definitely make this again and again.

Super yummy! All of my favorite ingredients in one dish - you shouldn't have, Syd! I'm lazy so I put this in the food processor & probably took a couple months off the life of that thing. Nevertheless this was delicious! I topped it with banana slices and raw pistachios and ate it as an appetizer. I think tomorrow I will add a carob sauce topping and have it for breakfast :) Thanks!!! Made for Veggie Swap 23!

This does melt pretty quickly. Louisiana heat doesn't do it justice, either. You gotta try this and rediscover the banana. You'll never look at it in the same light again. Made for PRMR.

This is a great alternative to adding Yohgurt to a fruit salad! also if your eating raw this recipe takes away the monotony of just picking up fruit and eating it !
