Frozen bananas need to be whirled with just a bit of yogurt to transform into a sweet frozen delight.

  • 3 large bananas
  • 1/2 cup sugar, preferably instant-dissolving
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt, or buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Peel and slice bananas into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Spread the rounds on the baking sheet, cover with more wax paper and freeze until solid, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  2. Combine the frozen bananas, sugar and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Combine yogurt (or buttermilk) and lemon juice; with the machine running, gradually pour the mixture through the feed tube. Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the workbowl once or twice. (The frozen yogurt should be firm enough to be served directly from the food processor, but if it is a little soft, let it harden in the freezer for about 30 minutes.)

Wow! Yum! What a great way to cool down in the summer while eating healthy. I omitted the sugar in this recipe, looking to be as healthy as possible. I also used Dannon Light & Fit vanilla yogurt and added a dash more cinnamon. I poured the mixture into small bathroom paper cups with popsicle sticks, and after frozen a few seconds under the hot water they popped out and tasted oh-so-good! What a great way to get your kids to eat yogurt if they normally wouldn't eat it by choice.
