Great low calorie dessert. I took the previous reviewers advice and used 3 large frozen bananas (When I freeze bananas, I usually freeze three in a freezer bag at a time.) but instead of greek yogurt, I used FF plain yogurt and added just a little vanilla flavoring. I happened to be out of lemons or lemon juice at the moment but I did have an orange, so I used a little fresh orange juice and a little orange zest. I followed the directions as to how to prepare it only at the second freezing time, I poured the liquid into Snack Cup containers I'd cleaned and saved and stuck them into the freezer for an hour, then stuck the popsicle sticks into them and let them freeze the rest of the way. Great way for me to portion control and very low in calories and sugar plus it's a way to use up the bananas that ripen too quickly that I just stick in bags in the freezer.

Based on the other reviewers' experiences of this freezing solid, I set out with the expectation of making popsicles. I guess I had a happy accident because I was able to enjoy this in ice cream form within 5 minutes. I used ripe bananas that I had frozen previously, Oikos Greek yogurt with honey on the bottom (I left out additional honey), 1 TBSP lemonade instead of lemon juice thinking it would be too sour. I mashed it all up with a potato masher because I didn't want to bother with more dishes. Minutes later it looked too good to put away in the freezer. Very tasty and amazingly fast to pull together. I had a cup of "ice cream" right then and there and put the rest in ice cube trays with toothpicks for popsicles later. I will be making it again this way!

this sounded so good. i wanted to love this recipe. first i must say that i have never made ice cream or frozen yogurt of any kind before. that said, this recipe as is was waaaay too sour. i had to add quite a bit more honey and then it was still sour but had a very strong banana taste. i happened to have a little bit of ricotta cheese in the fridge and some almonds so i blended them in. at that point (and a few splenda packets) the flavor was better, but when this froze it turned into a solid block. since i've never made this before i'll give it 3 stars to be fair. but really, i would never make this recipe again.
