Blueberry Banana Bliss

Ok ... want to satisfy your sweet tooth in an ice cream sort of way, but without all the fat and sugar ?? Here's a neat dessert I learned about a while ago but had forgotten until tonight when we were having a discussion with Jono ( our walking encyclopedia ! ) about healthy vs. not healthy food !

If you are like me, you'll already have an over ripe banana or two in your freezer. If not, you can freeze one. So, take the bananas out of the freezer about 20 mintues before you want to make your dessert. Peel and put in food processor with 2 tsp vanilla essence, and a pinch of cinnamon. Process 'til creamy. Don't process too long or it becomes quite "airy". Dish into bowl, top with frozen blueberries and pure maple syrup (optional). I've seen a recipe that topped it with walnuts too ...

I used 4 bananas for the 4 of us tonight and it was WAY TOO MUCH ! I think 2 would have been sufficient !

I don't have a food processer with a bowl, do you think I could do this in the blender? What a simple wonderful dessert! Have you made it without the maple syrup?

I think it would be fine in a blender ... Worth trying anyway ! I have made it without the maple syrup and it's just as yummy. Don't you like maple syrup ?

I have accomplished step one of this recipe.....at last! I have found some very ripe bananas. I have hidden them in the freezer because any knowlegde of bananas in the house causes extreme bouts of negative comments from the basement regions! I now am only waiting for the perfect moment to make this amazing looking concoction without stirring up anything besides dessert! (maple flavor takes over thing somethimes...so I often opt against it rather than risk that)
