Banana "Ice Cream" with Walnuts

I don't know about you, but I LOVE frozen yogurt.  This recipe is easy, healthy and really good.  You do have to do some prep work (aka throwing this stuff in the freezer a couple hours or days prior) other than that the food processor does the work.  This is for one serving.  Some people also claim that just freezing non fat yogurt makes it gritty, but this recipe has a smooth texture and great flavor.  Don't like bananas? How about strawberries, blueberries, mango? How about trying vanilla flavored yogurt etc etc.


· 2/3 cup of non fat plain yogurt, frozen
· 1 banana, sliced and frozen
· 2 tablespoons of walnuts, toasted


Dry toast the nuts in a skillet for a couple minutes.  Don't let them burn, we are just heating them up a bit.  Throw the yogurt and banana in the food processor and process until smooth. Top with the nuts and enjoy!

Tips: freeze the yogurt in a microwave safe bowl because once it's frozen it is hard to get out sometimes, so just pop in the microwave for about 10 seconds to release it from the bowl.
