Recipe by PaulaG

This is a variation of a recipe that is posted on the web. I used some lower fat items as well as reducing the amount of sugar by using half Splenda sugar substitute and half sugar. It is wonderful, rich and creamy.

This was really tasty, but I think I'll cut the sugar back next time. I used the 1/2 Sugar 1/2 splenda and a pretty ripe banana. Maybe next time 3/4 c. total sugar & splenda. Dh said this was like bread but better, because it's icecream (?)
