Banana "Soft Serve"

This is pretty incredible.....I could hardly believe it the first time I tried it. The consistency is exactly like soft serve. And you can't beat the nutritional value!

Next time you buy bananas, cut some up into chunks and store in your freezer. When you get a craving for sweets, pop some of the chunks into your blender (I definitely need a better one).

Start processing them. At first, they will go into tiny pieces.
The next part takes a little more effort (at least it does in my lame blender). As you blend, you'll have to frequently stop and use a spatula to push the bananas down into the blades. Keep at it, and eventually get something surprisingly similar to soft serve ice cream (banana flavored, of course).
It's very creamy and smooth. It's great with a little strawberry or chocolate sauce on it too!
