I keep going through these phases of "I WANT IT TO BE FALL SO BAD OMG" & "summer, you aren't so bad when you dip a bit below the 95 degrees .every.single.day. temperature gauge."
Right now, I'm in the second phase. Tampa is so lovely and enjoyable when it is in the 80s. Too bad 98 degrees rings in at the high every day May-September. With no Nick Lachey to ease the pain either. Ugh.
This frozen yogurt is incredibly easy to make and is a yummy treat that you can enjoy morning, afternoon, or night. That's right... it's HEALTHY! :) I mean... froyo is obviously always the "healthier choice" compared to normal ice cream, but this stuff has no added sugar or weird ingredients that you can't pronounce.
The secret is to use frozen bananas that were put in the freezer at their most delicious peak of ripeness. We don't necessarily want bananas that were frozen after all of the brown spots showed up to play. Save those for banana bread and muffins. Freeze your bananas just as they are beginning to ripen for frozen yogurt... while they are still mainly yellow.
My momma is an expert banana freezer. I always used to just throw cut-up bananas into tiny ziploc bags, but they always ended up turning a darker color in the freezer. My mom individually wraps each banana in saran wrap & then throws them all into a huge ziploc. (see below!) Doing so keeps the bananas fresh and ready for smoothies or frozen yogurt.

Enjoy every spoonful.
