    A quick simple and yummy dessert :o)  -  11 Feb 2015


    Being tired of banana breads, cookies and muffins I decided to try this recipe. I used 3/4 cup of leftover heavy sugar syrup to which lemon juice had been added during cooking (2cups sugar, 1 cup water & 1/4 cup lemon juice). I then processed the bananas and the syrup briefly in food processor until smooth, poured into a tupperware container, froze for a few hours, mashed with a fork and froze again. Hubby, who's not too fond of banana concoctions, asked for second and third helpings. DELICIOUS.  -  04 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe needs an easy fix to be 5 stars. Use 3 cups of water and yellow food coloring. I made it according to the recipe and froze it overnight. The next day it was a gooey heavy frozen banana. I had nothing to lose so I added 2 more cups of water, yellow food coloring and mixed it in a food processor. Within 2 hours of refreezing it was a yummy banana sorbet.  -  02 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
