This is so nice and creamy! Such a nice, refreshing dessert/snack. We had a filling dinner tonight.. baked cod fillets, garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli smothered in melted cheese... so this dessert was really nice to end a filling meal. I just want to stress that you need to make sure you dont add too much vanilla. I found that I had to add a little sugar to the recipe because it was a little bitter without it. This is a marvelous recipe! THANK YOU SO MUCH!..and thanks for helping me figure out the measurements :-) I look forward to trying many of your recipes!!

This is a great summer dessert! I've been making it a couple of times a week since getting this recipe. I use soy milk to make it a little more creamy. Its also good with cinnamon instead of vanilla.

I too added a little splenda to offset the "bite" that frozen bannana sometimes has. The kids fought me for it! Very nice flavor, my 4 year old was calling it "bannana ice cream". Definitely like soft serve. Thanks for a great way to beat my ice cream craving in a healthy way!

This turned out just like soft serve ice cream (minus all the fat of course). Thank you so much for this wonderful idea. I love bananas and I love ice cream and this is a perfect way to have both!

Really good! Love that I can enjoy this creamy delicious treat and not feel bad about it. I used juice, but think I would prefer milk next time. I've made something similar but using PB and honey and that works great too. Looking forward to experimenting with this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

We have been making this for years however we really would rather have chocolate milk or add chocolate syrup. I have told a lot of friends about this - we call it a chocolate shake.

Oh wow. This was way better than I expected. My bananas always seem to start browning before I can eat them so I throw them in the freezer whole (peel and everything). I pulled some out, peeled and chopped them up and whirled them with almond milk,cocoa powder and a touch of vanilla. Delish! This will now be a go to recipe when we are craving something sweet. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is a great low fat dessert. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this. I used 2 bananas and about 4 TB of skim milk to get it to the right consistency. Next time I will try it with a touch of vanilla.

Love this, and so does the boyfriend (who is not into health food). You shouldn't think of it as ice cream though. "Frozen dessert" might be better. I love this with a little granola or a dollop of peanut butter. A few tips from my trial and error: cut the banana into relatively small chunks. I just quartered the bananas the first time, and it was a little difficult to get creamy. Food processors work a LOT better than blenders - don't know why. Loved it! Thanks!
