Banana “trees” are actually the world’s largest herbs, with “trunks” of tightly wound leaves that grow as tall as 30feet.

Banana “tree” fruit are botanically classified as berries, meeting the scientific definition because they grow out of a flower with a single ovary.

  • 4  Bananas, ripe; cut into chunks
  • 3-4 tbs Milk
  • 2 tbs  Toasted, flaked almonds
  • 2 tbs Toffee or chocolate sauce, ready-made

1 Spread the banana chunks on a flat tray and cover well. Freeze for at least 1 hour or until frozen through.

When ready to eat, throw the banana into a food processor and mix until smooth with just enough of the milk to achieve a creamy texture.

3 Scoop into four bowls or glasses, then top with the sauce and nuts.
