This is a nice way to use up overripe bananas and have a fairly healthy treat ready for the kids. It has no sugar & is low fat. Diabetics should substitute carob for the chocolate buttons. Keeps for about 1 week. (Cooking time is freezing time)

My son was beside himself waiting for this to freeze. We really enjoyed the banana and chocolate flavor. The maple really sets the whole thing off. I thought it was a little icy, sort of a sorbet more than an ice cream consistancy. Still it was EXCELLENT! I am thinking about adding some rum and making an "adult" shake out of some here in a bit! yum!

This is nice & flavorful. Has an icy consistency though so hard to call it "ice cream" - I think this would be very nice if after the final "blend" it was poured into pop molds to make banana choc chip ice pops!
