Lovely recipe. Terribly satisfying, I should think. I do have a tip, however, for those watching their waistlines: Try using older bananas (older bananas tend to be noticably sweeter). I use this trick when making banana bread - I use very ripe bananas and cut the sugar by at least a third. It works quite nicely. So much so that no one is the wiser. But we are all the healthier. Cheers!
