Everybody's favorite fruit has a secret. When you freeze it, and then stick it in a food processor, a banana will whip up into a texture not unlike soft-serve ice cream.
I just made up a version of this that added a little honey and peanut butter to the basic frozen banana cream. Not everybody will dig this—my husband, for instance, wasn't a fan—but I loved it.

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
