Bananas Foster Ice Cream

I'm trying to be healthy. Well........sure. Healthy. Er. Ish. Adjacent. 

At the rate I consume  make ice cream, I should switch it up now and then for a less cream laden variety. Enter: the banana. 

Yes, I've heard and laughed at this idea of the yo-nanas frozen banana soft serve. Sorry, but as a die hard ice cream addict, I just can't get behind it. That said, I had a brief moment of health consciousness and decided to try it out the only way I enjoy eating bananas....covered in sugar. 

Did I say health conscious? contains no cream. So that's something. 

All said and done, I actually rather enjoy it. I'm surprised by the consistency. The addition of 1 tablespoon of rum keeps the banana puree from freezing to a rock solid state, allowing it to remain scoopable after freezing and truly does add to the creamy consistency. In all, it really is rather like ice cream, and a rather delightful one at that. 

As for ish? adjacent?
