Donna Hay's Mango and Banana Gelato Recipe

I am a huge fan of Australian author and food stylist, Donna Hay. At the moment her Fast, Fresh and Simple television series is screening here in New Zealand and I have fallen in love with this delicious, simple summer recipe.
It is a super easy to make, very healthy and although I don't really like mangos on their own, I LOVE them in this recipe! Rosie and I decided to make this after we had some leftover mango at Christmas and we were able to make this together with minimal fuss and effort.
Donna Hay's Mango and Banana Gelato
2 bananas chopped (We used three as we wanted a more banana flavour)
3 mangos chopped (We used one as that is all we had!)
280 grams thick, natural (sweetened or unsweetened, depending on your tastes) or vanilla yoghurt
 That is it! As you can see, you can adapt your quantities quite easily with this recipe, depending on what you have.
1. Place the banana and mango in a sealed container and freeze for 2–3 hours or until frozen. Place the frozen fruit and yogurt in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Serve immediately or place in a sealed container and freeze. After freezing allow to soften for 5 minutes before serving.
This is a great guilt-free alternative to ice-cream and has the taste of summer. Give it a go!
