"You will have a hard time believing that this frozen treat is not really ice cream, but is a good-for-you all fruit dessert. I serve this to the kids in the family and they love to build their own sundaes. It melt fast, so serve it right away or stick it in the freezer."

"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!"
"We hated this! It tastes just like frozen baby food puree. I don't know what I was expecting since the ingredients are just bananas, milk, and vanilla, but I was really hoping for something somewhat reminiscent of ice cream, and this was not even close. I threw out most of the batch."
"This recipe is amazing! My family loves it! We used frozen bananas, a few frozen strawberries, some fat free half and half, vanilla and some splenda. YUM! We can't wait to try other flavors also! Thanks for this "magic" recipe!"
"this looks so yummy but i could not figure out how many bananas to use or how much fruit juice. :( if anyone could help me that would be great. thanx :)"
"The healthiest food I ate this entire holiday week. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag."
"This is perfect for me and my husband, we cannot have sugary desserts, but this let us have 'ice cream'. For adults, using a few spoonfuls of kalua, o frangelico liquor makes it extra good. Thanks for this recipe!"
"This saved the day when we opened the fridge and our strawberry ice cream was "chewy" (yuck). My 4-year-old was more than happy with this ... and her mom and dad enjoyed it, too! Even baby sister got to try! We did add a little sugar and honey. Wonderful!"
"This was fantastic. I used 4 small-ish bananas, about 1/2 cup milk, a tsp or so of vanilla extract, and about 2 Tbsp honey. Yum, yum. We got four generous servings. Thanks for this easy recipe!"
"This is sooo good! I used some blueberry jam insted of the vanilla extract, and it was perfect. Didn't need no sweetener :D Thank you!"
"Yum! i didn't know so few ingredients would make this. :) It was very good! I used milk but I think next time I will use juice or something to add some extra sweetness. Thanks for the great idea!"
