Banana ‘ice cream.’

Banana Ice Cream.

This ice-cream recipe is very quick, rather delicious and nutritious.

I make this recipe in my Thermomix, but you can also make in a high speed food processor. Just cut the bananas into smaller chunks before adding in.

Serves 4 – 6 people.

 Ingredients

  • 500g of frozen banana pieces (around 4 medium bananas)
  • 1-2 handfuls of raw macadamia nuts or pecans. (1/2 cup)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of cacao power
  • Optional: 1-2 tablespoons of something sweet- agave, raw honey or maple syrup.
  1. Put all ingredients into Thermomix bowl or food processor and process on a high speed (9 on TM) until all ingredients come together. Usually 30-45 seconds. The mixture will be crumbly at first but will come together quite quickly.
  2. Serve it immediately before it melts.
  3. If you have leftovers, let it melt slightly and freeze in individual ice cube trays. You can then add into smoothies. Or re-process at a later day to make into ‘ice cream’ again.
