You know you’ve made it as an adult when no one stops you eating ice cream for breakfast – Ironically as you get older you become more aware of the health implications that come with such decisions.

Thankfully, some sweet-toothed genius came up with a healthy alternative making it a perfectly acceptable option every day..

Banana & Strawberry Nice-Cream


INGREDIENTS
– 4 medium frozen bananas
– 1 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries
– 1/2 cup of almond & coconut milk (or other dairy free milk)
– 2 tbsp desiccated coconut

METHOD

  • Take bananas and strawberries out of the freezer
  • Set bananas aside to thaw for a few minutes
  • (Not shown here, but peanuts, almonds or pistachios are a great addition and if you want to blitz them from whole then this is the part where you would do so – leaving some aside to sprinkle on top at the end)
  • Place strawberries in the blender and add a dash of water to help smooth out the consistency to resemble soft-serve ice cream
  • Pulse the blender on a high power setting if you have the option to – this will prevent the strawberries from oxidising so much and potentially tasting bitter
  • Once smooth, empty the contents in to a bowl and store in the fridge to slow down the melting process
  • Add the bananas to the blender – by this point they should still be frozen but not rock solid. I usually freeze my bananas when their skins are spotting and have them cut in to 1-2 inch chunks so the machine has a little less work to do
  • Pour in the dairy free milk (Silk Almond Vanilla works really well with this recipe)
  • Pulse ingredients until smooth as before
  • Empty the banana ice cream directly on top of the strawberry sorbet mix and use a chopstick to swirl
  • Garnish with desiccated coconut
  • Eat until your heart’s content or until brain freeze stops you
