  1. In a small saucepan, stir together sugar and water. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. When the sugar syrup is cool, stir in bananas. Pour into a freezer - safe baking dish. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours, until set at the edges.
  3. Remove from the freezer and transfer to a mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat until smooth. Return to the freezer until gently set, at least 2 hours.

Being tired of banana breads, cookies and muffins I decided to try this recipe. I used 3/4 cup of leftover heavy sugar syrup to which lemon juice had been added during cooking (2cups sugar, 1 cup water & 1/4 cup lemon juice). I then processed the bananas and the syrup briefly in food processor until smooth, poured into a tupperware container, froze for a few hours, mashed with a fork and froze again. Hubby, who's not too fond of banana concoctions, asked for second and third helpings. DELICIOUS.

Didn't really care for it...way too sweet & the whole thing turned dark well before it even froze. Maybe some lemon juice would help?

This recipe needs an easy fix to be 5 stars. Use 3 cups of water and yellow food coloring. I made it according to the recipe and froze it overnight. The next day it was a gooey heavy frozen banana. I had nothing to lose so I added 2 more cups of water, yellow food coloring and mixed it in a food processor. Within 2 hours of refreezing it was a yummy banana sorbet.

I made this for my son who can't eat dairy. I baked my bananas first for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F which prevents them from browning. It was very sweet, but for my son it was perfect. I added chocolate chips for him as a little treat. I will definitely make this again!

Good recipe-- and quick. Here's an even quicker variation: use the same ingredients and measurements. Put sugar and banana in blender workbowl and blend until sugar dissolved. Add ice water and pulse to mix. Put cold mixture in freezer bowl of electric ice cream maker and allow to turn and freeze. My ice cream maker took about 25 minutes to produce ready-to-eat sherbet.

This recipe is really easy - you do need to use much less sugar though. I used 1/2C, next time I will try 1/4C. I also added a splash of lemon juice to both the syrup and mashed banana to retain the color. Overall, I liked it.

Due to the reviews I cut back the sugar a bit. I also added a pinch each of cinnamon & nutmeg, an additional banana a dash of cocoa & a splash of milk. It came out beautifully. Next time I'm going to add some strawberries just to see what happens.

This is a very unappetizing dish to look at! Unless of course you like different color browns for dessert! Too sweet also as another reviewer noted.
