Oh wow, wait until you make and eat this ice cream!
I cannot believe we haven’t shared this with you earlier. We were at some friends and they were making it…we ate it and loved it! I’m used to making our ice cream either the old fashioned way using raw organic dairy milk or hand churning the coconut milk in the freezer until we get the desired texture. But this is so much faster, cheaper and easier!
The recipe I’m going to share with you is Anais’s and her buddy Indie’s favourite (they star in the video) and they have only used 4 ingredients! Their favourite is banana, mango and pineapple. Now I am not a big fan of pineapple but boy is this delicious. If you have frozen banana’s in your fridge you can make ice cream!
Once you know how you will be making this for your family too. Not only is it going to save you money it will also save putting nasty chemicals found in conventional ice cream into your body. It’s a win-win!!
Here’s what you need:
- 2 organic frozen banana’s
- 1 1/2 cups of organic frozen mango
- 1/2 cup of pineapple
- 1/2 cup of coconut cream
How to put it together:
- Place all of the frozen fruit in a blender or Thermomix and blitz for 3-5 secs
- Slowly pour the coconut cream into your blender or Thermomix and mix on a medium speed or speed 4 if you have a Thermomix for 3 secs.
- Continue to pause and repeat step 2 until you have reached your desired consistency. Note: the more coconut cream you add the more the ice cream will become like a smoothie.
The girl’s other favourite options:
- Banana and peanut butter with cacao nibs. Add the peanut butter in step two when you add the coconut cream. Add the cacao nibs last, put your blender or Thermomix on reverse (so you don’t grind the nibs!) and mix until combined.
- Banana and mixed berries
Tips for freezing your banana’s:
- Freeze banana’s when they are ripe. In other words they have dark spots on their skin.
- Peel the banana and either keep it whole of halve it. I halve them in case we want a smaller amount in a smoothie.
- Wrap them in aluminium (alfoil) and place into a container suitable for your freezer or you can leave the banana’s unwraped and use parchment paper to layer your container so they don’t stick together.
