“This recipe came from the Barefoot Contessa and I have made it several times. It's very creamy and satisfying. If you are going to make it with the fresh banana slices, you must eat it the same day. I always use 1% milk, because I never have whole milk on hand. The stir-ins, fruits, nuts, are flexible, whatever you like, and whatever you have on hand.”
