3/4 cup lowfat milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/8 - 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3 - 4 medium bananas, very ripe
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

What You'll Need to Do

Step One: Using a whisk or a hand mixer on low speed, mix milk, granulated sugar, and nutmeg. Continue mixing until sugar dissolves. (This will take 1-2 minutes.)

Step Two: Purree (or mash) bananas until they are pureed well. Add mashed bananas to the milk/sugar mixture.

Step Four: Stir in heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract.
