The uncanny creaminess of frozen bananas, their best friend Nutella, and rich, tangy coconut milk yogurt, found at many health food stores, combine for this treat.

Note: Rather than throwing them in the freezer whole and later getting frustrated trying to peel them once they're frozen, I've tried to get in the habit of peeling bananas before freezing them in a Ziploc bag. Definitely not rocket science, but it works best for this recipe.
