While the milk heats, mix remaining soymilk with arrowroot until smooth. Blend maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and bananas in blender or food processor until smooth. When bubbles start to form around the edges of the heating milk, whisk in the arrowroot mixture and whisk constantly until the hot milk thickens; then remove from heat. Blend a half-cup of the hot milk into the egg mixture to temper it, then add egg mixture to the hot milk and blend well.
