  8. Whisk in the yogurt until smooth, and then add the banana puree.
  9. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions, until nearly frozen.
  10. Mix in the chopped bananas and chocolate.
  11. Scrape the frozen yogurt into an airtight container, cover, and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
