Banana Ice Cream

For years, I was under the impression that bananas are loaded with tons of fat (thanks for the false information dad!) For that reason, I have avoided eating this delicious fruit.  I recently did some research and learned that there is only 1 gram of fat in a banana and they are loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals!  Since my new discovery of this “power fruit” I have been trying to find new ways to incorporate bananas into my diet.  I LOVE frozen bananas and even with the cold weather lingering outside, I was in the mood for something creamy and cold, since I was snuggled under layers of blankets watching Law and Order: SVU.  This definitely satisfied my craving!
