(Stephanie) - This is a super quick, yummy little treat. Just three ingredients! Although I've never made what I've seen called banana soft-serve ice cream, I'm guessing this mousse recipe is quite similar. I copied this recipe down on a piece of paper sometime ago, I'm pretty sure that it came from Food Network, but now I can't remember.

I love that this dessert can be considered healthy and can be made without planning ahead or turning on the oven. Hope you enjoy this prefect summer treat!
