I always have a stash of frozen bananas in the freezer. They are great for making guilt free frozen desserts, for using in smoothies or to simply eat as they are. Tonight we decided to make some ice cream (raspberry for Finn, chocolate for my husband and coconut and cinnamon for myself)
For the raspberry ice cream, I blitzed together half a banana with 10 raspberries. So easy, so delicious and healthy too!
For my husband’s chocolate ice cream, I simply blitzed half a banana with a spoon of cocoa powder. I served it with fresh raspberries.
I have always loved cinnamon but when I was pregnant with Finn I went totally off it. The smell and taste made my stomach turn. Now my love for the sweet spice has returned. I chose to flavour my ice cream with cinnamon and coconut. To half a banana, I added a teaspoon of cinnamon with a tablespoon of unsweetened shredded coconut. Yummy!
Healthy Ice Cream
- half a frozen banana
- raspberries (for raspberry ice cream) (add desired amount)
- Cocoa Powder (for chocolate ice cream) (add desired amount)
- Shredded Coconut (for cinnamon and coconut ice cream) (add desired amount)
- Using a food processor blend together the banana with your chosen ingredient/s. Blitz until you get an ice cream consistency.
I like to take the banana out of the freezer 5 mins before making the ice cream so it blends easily.
