Banana Soft Serve

I love a good soft serve ice cream.  Frozen custard is actually my ultimate favorite, but being quite the decadent treat, I only splurge on it once in a while.
This month’s recipe redux is my answer to high calorie frozen treats.
Soft serve “ice cream” that is not only just as creamy, luscious, and sweet as the best custard, but with no added sugar or fat and just a fraction of the calories.
Sound too good to be true?  It’s not. To sweeten the deal even more, it only takes about a minute to prepare.
Meet the Banana Soft Serve.
Ingredients:  frozen bananas.  That’s all, folks.  Just freeze up some perfectly ripe bananas, throw them in your blender and moments later….soft serve to rival custard. Sprinkle on your favorite topping (mine is chocolate sprinkles) and enjoy.

    Amazing that all you did was blend up frozen bananas and this is what you got! Wonder if that would work with other fruit (I'm not a banana eater!).

    Hello there, I believe your website may very well be getting browser compatibility troubles. When I appear at your site in Safari, it appears very good but when opening in World wide web Explorer, it’s got some overlapping. I just needed to provide you with a swift heads up! Other then that, wonderful weblog!

    Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and never seem to get anything done.

  3. […] It’s so dang tasty I’ve eaten more of it than Hany has. He likes everything a bit sweeter than I do, and he actually said this was not sweet enough for him. Which means that it’s perfect for me! So feel free to adjust the sweetness as you see fit. Mix some into your Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, add it to your salad, or sprinkle over banana soft serve.
