    Oolala's Note:

    From "The Fitness Kitchen" by Shelly Sinton and inspired by Sally Schneider's recipe in "A New Way to Cook." Like a faux ice cream that tastes sublime without the heavy cream and sugar. Need frozen banana slices so need about 1 hour ahead of time. Finished dessert can be frozen in an airtight container and thawed for 30 minutes before serving to soften.

      This was very good! I halved the recipe and ended up freezing my bananas for closer to 24 hrs than an hour. I had no coconut so omitted this, though I think it would have been wonderful, because without the shredded coconut there is really no coconut flavor at all, just creamy cold banana. I did have some semi-sweet chocolate chips I sprinkled on top. Thanks, Oolala. I think I will also try another reviewer's suggestion and try it with other frozen fruits.

      It was awfully banann-y for me, I would have liked to have more coconut flavor, personally. I didn't toast the coconut but stirred some directly into the icecream before freezing. Not enough time. Next time I'll toast it and will likely serve with chocolate sauce.

      This is fantastic, and a great, healthy dessert option. I've also tried this with other frozen packaged fruit (strawberries, blueberries), tastes great and is really quick.
