Deborah's Frozen Banana Dessert
taught me how to make this. It's so delicious and light and
refreshing and easy and fun to make. Great for company or just a
cool treat on a summer night.
You must serve this immediately, while it's still cold,
so don't start making it till you are ready to eat it.
(amounts are approximate; you can experiment to find the combination that you like):
- 1 frozen banana per serving. (I like to put bananas in the freezer if they are
starting to get too ripe and I can't use them fresh. They'll keep quite
a while in the freezer. Better to peel before freezing since it's
hard to get the peel off after they are frozen.)
- 1/2 cup plain yoghurt per serving. (I highly recommend low-fat
It's the best.)
- 2 or 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice per serving.
(Lemon juice works fine if you don't have limes.)
- A little sugar or honey (optional)
- Cut frozen banana(s) into chunks and put into blender.
(Be sure not to let the bananas thaw beforehand. You want to
serve this dessert as cold as possible.)
- Add yoghurt and lime juice.
- Blend till smooth.
(Don't overdo because want to keep it cold.)
- Taste and then add a little sugar or honey if you'd like it to be
more sweet. (Be careful not to get too sweet.)
- Spoon into a dessert glass. A wine glass works great.
- Serve immediately, while it's still cold.
I haven't tried any of these but think they might be good.
- Freeze the yoghurt as well as the bananas.
- Add other frozen fruit.
- Add nuts.
- Add chocolate.
