The ice cream turned out really nicely. I was expecting a stronger coconut taste, but the overall taste is very good. In the future, I would definitely consider making this recipe again. I mashed the bananas with a fork this time, which worked fine, but I think in future attempts I might puree the bananas for a smoother texture. The recipe calls for chilling the ice cream mix for only three hours before putting in the ice cream freezer. I personally found that this did not chill the mix enough. Therefore, I chilled in the refrigerator for three hours and then moved the mix to the freezer for another hour. I think this might fix some of the problems other users were having with the mix not freezing.
