Freeze some past-their-best bananas in advance.
Ripe bananas are much better for flavour here than chalky, almost green ones. The skins will go black in the freezer but that doesn't affect the fruit at all.
Then simply peel them under hot water or cut the skins off, chop them into chunks and blend them.
This makes a healthy dessert in its natural state or you could add extras such as custard, vanilla paste, plain yoghurt, honey to make it into a creamier dessert to put back in the freezer in a plastic tub until needed.
Try to use a plastic tub about the right size as the air in a big tub causes unattractive 'freezer burn'.
This particular ice cream was:
5 frozen bananas, peeled and chopped
A single portion pot of low fat
Four dessert spoons of plain yoghurt
A heaped teaspoon of honey
Blended, spooned into a freezable plastic tub, put back in the freezer for another day.
