2-1/2 cups Sugarlesse™
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups heavy whipping cream
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4 to 5 medium)
In a large heavy saucepan, heat half-and-half to 175°F; stir in Sugarlesse™ and salt until dissolved. Whisk a small amount of hot mixture into eggs. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 160°F and coats the back of a metal spoon.
