    Yes! Although I’m not a big banana fan, this looks sensational =D. I might have to give it a try!

    I have frozen “sweet cherries” (what it says on the bag). Will those work? I stuck some overripe bananas in the fridge a few weeks ago and have been wanting to use them. Very excited about this recipe!

    @Morgan, Yes, those will work. You can actually use any frozen fruit – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries. It’s good with just the banana and the yogurt, too.

    Ooh – my kind of treat! Anything with bing cherries is automatically on my “yum” list. This sounds easy and delicious.

    I’ve used almost this same recipe with frozen bananas and strawberries or blueberries. I see you have a link to something similar. Very tasty. Another combo I’m crazy about right now is cherries and raspberries. You are correct it is very much like frozen yogurt. I feel guilty for eating it for breakfast, well almost!

    Looks divine, Amy! Bananas do amazing things in yogurts and ice creams for sure. :-) I like the idea of the single portion, too. ;-)

    My college guy would love this. He’s taking his ice cream maker back with him. Made me go get myself a new one. Glad I did.

    Looks creamy, healthy and delicious. Quite like ice-cream to me. Would love to try that….something healthy to start off the year.

    Looks really great – and once again I’m stalled at the gate by a stupid problem, but this time I’m just going to ask a potentially idiotic question and hope you know the answer…

    Are there any viable subs for bananas in smoothies and frozen treats? Celiac is a pain, but the banana allergy might make me nutty! So many good ideas seem to start with “Take one ripe banana”! Help?

    @Jenna, That does sound like a tricky problem. The banana adds lots of creaminess to the frozen yogurt but I think you could try it without the banana and just add more fruit that you can tolerate.

    I’ve also frozen the yogurt in ice cube trays and thrown the fruit in the microwave so it’s soft and juice, then whirled them in the food processor. I can’t guarantee it will be as creamy but it would be a nice, quick frozen treat.

    @Amy, Thanks so much, I’ll definitely give that a try. Heck, I’ve got yogurt working in the kitchen at the moment, so I’ve got plenty to experiment with. I have to wonder, if the banana is mainly there for a creamy taste… would yogurt cheese (yogurt dripped through cheesecloth overnight) work better? The nice thing I’m finding about celiac – at least experiments in THIS lab are usually edible!

    Amy Reply:

    @Jenna, Yes, I think that yogurt cheese would work. It’s thick enough to make a creamier texture. Greek yogurt would work, too. I would start with less yogurt and then add more to get the consistency you want. I would love to hear how it turns out!

    LOVE these ideas- my BF thinks she might have Celiac disease- we are going to try to do some of these recipes TONIGHT! Thanks for all the healthy ideas. It really helps when they come from someone I trust.

    @Lorie AMYS LITTLE SISTER :) , Hey you! It’s so neat to have you comment on my blog. I hope your BF doesn’t have Celiac and it’s something easier to live with, but most of all I hope she finds a solution so she feels better. Let me know what you think about the recipes you try. I so value your feedback. Much love!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I have a milk allergy so I replaced the yogurt with soy yogurt and it turned out beautifully…and…um, added some mini chocolate chips (but maybe I shouldn’t admit that part LOL). Thank you again :)

    Sorry to double post, but I just had to come back. I ate my cherry banana frozen yogurt about 15 minutes ago…and I’m full. I’m not craving anything. It’s a wierd feeling. Usually I am up starving at night and can eat a whole box of crackers, cookies, etc…but I’m not hungry at all. I stumbled upon your site, looking up a recipe for my MIL who recently went gluten free, and am so glad I did. After reading your story I’m pretty sure that I’m like you too. I can’t believe that my eyes are tearing up right now…but I’m so thankful to not be hungry. Thank you.

    @Kestlyn, I understand the tears. It’s a miracle in my book. I was hungry for years until I quit the white sugar and wheat.
