Frozen Banana Mousse

For Christmas I made yogurt from just whipping cream for the very first time. It whipped up much better than I expected. If you haven’t made it, it’s basically just yogurt made from whipping cream in the same way you would normally would make yogurt from milk. 

Since it’s kind of an indulgence I just made a half batch. Then I used my stand mixer to whip it up with a little honey and vanilla. It was pretty light and fluffy and tasted pretty much like regular whipped cream, with a hint of a yogurt taste (in a good way).

After I had used what I wanted during the holidays I had some left over. I didn’t want to just eat it so I decided to try to make it into something that would keep for a little while. So I whipped it up with some banana (always have those on hand), honey, and vanilla and froze it.

2 very ripe bananas
1 1/2 cups yogurt made from whipping cream
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Slice bananas into a large bowl. Add yogurt, honey, and vanilla. Beat at high speed until yogurt is light and fluffy – it should at least double  in volume.

Scoop mixture into a freezer container and freeze for a few hours. If desired you can stir it a few times during the freezing process to keep it from freezing as solid. Allow to thaw for a few minutes before serving.
