To start, you need – you got it – bananas! They can be really ripe and browned or not, depending on how strong you want the banana flavor to be (or how strong your willpower to wait for them to brown is 🙂 ). I used 3 bananas.

You can eat it right away, while it’s still soft like frozen yogurt or you can freeze it. The nice thing about when it’s frozen is that even though it firms up, it still remains easily scoopable. It’s a fabulous, guilt free treat. Definitely one of my new favorites!
