Frozen banana "ice cream"??? Can this really work?

Author claims freezing banana slices, then putting them in the blender with additives (other fruit, chocolate, peanut butter, etc.) yields a tasty ice cream alternative. Wondering if any CH'ers have tried this. I don't need the fat or sugar found in typical ice creams so this is worth a try. But no bananas at home nor time to shop 'til the weekend.
I wouldn't call it 'ice cream' but a delicious frozen banana treat.
I use frozen bananas, low fat milk, and a spoonful of malt powder for a very tasty 'milkshake'...
I literally just watched Rachael Ray make this on her show today. I have to say that it looked really good when it was all blended and whipped up.
I was raised by health fanatics: no sugar, eggs, white flour, meat, oil, butter, milk, honey, (a.k.a nothing good) and this was what we got for a treat on special days like birthdays. (don't get me started on what we had for "cake"...)
It's actually very tasty, though! Even melts in a kind of soft-servy way. We literally just froze sliced bananas and pureed them in the blender or food processor or something.
Haven't eaten it in years because I grew up left the house and discovered just how good the real thing can be.
It's no substitute for the real thing, but it's totally tasty.
