I am not a fan of bananas except in cereal and milk and frozen in my smoothies. I have, however, always loved Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream.  I heard that frozen bananas make a great ice cream substitute and I can finally confirm that it is true.  All you need is a frozen banana and a food processor and you have your base.
