Banana Faux Ice Cream

You can officially crush that sugar craving with something healthy!  Better yet, all you need is a blender (no ice cream machines here).   We're having this banana sunday every day of the week.  It is unbelievably delicious and we can't believe how well it turned out.  Plus there's no artificial sugar added (only maple syrup) and the pistachios add a delightful crunch!
