"Very good but I added extra fat free was way too thick."

"2 of us speaking here. she says less banana and more PB. i cannot believe how thick this is.

we used chunky PB and no topping on top. have to agree on 5 servings from this. where are they? i know i know typical ice cream servings are 1/2 cup, but still."

"Don't know how you get 5 servings out of this recipe"

"This sounds delish, however at 203 calories for a mere half cup it would be better served in a tiny dessert dish than a drinking glass."
