This is a great healthy alternative to store bought ice cream. My Miss 4 and Mr 2 always ask for ice cream, so I came up with this healthy alternative to the store bought stuff. I normally give the kids one of these in the afternoon for a snack, I can even bribe them to pick up their toys in exchange for an “ice cream” < insert wicked mum laugh here.
Seriously these are so yummy, low calories, each one averages about 110 calories per serve and each recipe will serve 4 people. I like that I can use whatever we have in the fridge, you can also try other ingredients like: honey, coconut, carob powder, apple, pear, etc Get creative!
Here are 3 of the flavor’s I make regularly:
Chocolate / Banana: 3 Frozen bananas and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. I also sometimes use protein powder.
Mango: 2 Frozen bananas and 2 cups of frozen mango.
Berry: 2 Frozen bananas and 2 cups of mixed frozen berries.
Simply pop ingredients into a blender or Thermomix and blitz on high for 2 minutes. After a minute of blitzing check how it looks you may want to add 10 mls of milk, or juice to bind it together. (I find the berry mix needs a little bit of juice to get a smooth consistency).
Then simply scoop into cups and serve YUM!
