Here's the deal: I was hasty in my post. I hadn't yet tried out other ways of making the stuff and I was just so darn impressed that it had an initial consistency of soft serve ice cream (which it only retains for the first 30 seconds of being blended). I think you could have told me that dog feces could be ice cream if you froze it and blended it and I would have been sold based on the excitement that something low-calorie could pass as that frozen goodness (is dog poo low calorie? I know not).

So in the end I have made it several more times using different add-ons to try to get it to taste like anything but straight blended bananas, and guess what it only ever tastes like? Straight blended bananas. Even with 2 heaping tablespoons of Nutella this evening, all you could taste was banana. And too much banana. I am no longer a fan. If you have to add hundreds of calories to get it to resemble anything close to ice cream, than I say, why not just eat ice cream? Or, if you want to eat something that tastes like bananas, than why not just eat a banana?
So I am sorry for my hasty high praises, and hopefully you didn't waste too much time, energy or bananas based on that post. Ana, over and out.
