Banana Icecream!

dairy_Free_Banana_Icecream

As I’ve just finished making this amazing icecream for my family, I thought it about time I shared.  It is paleo, dairy free, low FODMAP (and fructose) gluten free and raw!  The only catch is that you need a food processor or preferably (to make the job quicker) a Thermomix.

Our family has a tendency to only eat “just ripe” banana. When the weather is warming up, this poses a problem as they ripen fairly fast.  Instead of throwing them out, I just peel them, chop them up into about 2 cm rounds and freeze them.

When needed, I just bring them back out again, no defrosting needed.

Pop whatever quantity I require into the Thermomix (or food processor).

Add some macadamias and some cacao nibs into the bowl with the banana.

I then just blitz them in a Thermomix on speed 9 for about 15 seconds (or on high speed in a food processor), scrape the sides down and then again for another 15 seconds.  By this time the banana has become a smooth, delicious “icecream” with lovely bursts of cacao in it!

This will take longer in a food processor, just persist and keep scraping the sides down.

Of course you can use your imagination and make whatever combination of flavours you like.  I would love to hear your variations!  I have been know to put some dairy free choc chips in at the last minute as a big treat!

Enjoy this delicious, health treat x
