    Love this recipe. I like to peel and freeze the bananas and store in a ziplock. By adding frozen banana, I don’t need the ice.

    This has become my daughter’s morning ritual. She is 11. This past weekend, while watching the Royal Wedding, we noticed we were out of frozen bananas and did not want to run down to the market to get any and miss a moment of the “action”. I had some unsweetened frozen dark cherries and substituted. Amazing! Thank you for the original idea. I have started using unsweetened cocoa powder in so many things to reduce the amount of sugar I use.

      Sounds yummy – thank you for sharing!
