This double-strength banana dessert beats a banana split halfway to Dakar! Served with an excellent demitasse, it is a delicious and sophisticated dessert. Posted for ZWT 2006.

This is so much better then the sum of its parts. I made the frozen mixture (using splenda and fat free half & half) and thought "this is ok." Add it to the fresh banana (which I simply broke up and put into my container) and add a few toppings (Yes, chocolate is a must here!) and this is divine.
