Bananas give this dessert the consistency of ice cream; you'll never miss the fat. It's sugar-free healthy as can be, and as colorful as you want to make it. Serves 6.
2 large ripe bananas
juice of one lemon
2/3 cup unsweetened frozen strawberries, UNTHAWED
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice, chilled
Slice bananas and toss with the lemon juice. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet, and freeze until firm (30 minutes or more). In a food processor fitted with metal blade, add frozen bananas, strawberries and cold juice and process until smooth, scraping sides of processor bowl as necessary. Serve immediately, or spoon into serving dishes, or wine or parfait glasses, and freeze up to 1 hour.
