Berries & coconut nice cream
That sweet taste of summer... Yes I am talking a berries and ice cream combination in any way possible!! Except that this ice cream has no milk! It’s the power of the humble banana striking again. We always have bananas in my house, fresh in the fruit bowl for those quick energy refuel moments. I also usually have some sliced frozen bananas in my freezer to add to smoothies or to make this nice cream. Once you’ve done this one… do experiment with your favourite flavours!
4 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen for at least 2 -3 hours
50ml almond milk
3 tablespoons desiccated coconut
Prep time 15mins
(2hours freeze time for the bananas)
Add the frozen banana and most of the fruits to a food processor and whizz briefly.
Add the coconut and whizz again.
Depending on consistency you like, start adding a little almond milk.
To serve, scoop out into a bowl and top with reserved fresh fruits.
Fresh mint leaves and extra coconut shavings also work brilliantly.
The Health Boost Tip
Nice cream is the perfect way to increase those real fruit portions in the summer and feel like it’s a real treat! Perfect way to cool down post workout or for a barbecue with friends. Bananas are high in fibre and often get discarded and wasted as we highlighted in a blog post before. Have a read and search “Banana” for more delicious banana based recipes.
