An easy, delicious frozen treat made with a handful of wholesome ingredients. Bananas, coconut milk, honey and either raspberries or cacao powder!
This is going to be a short one today. My previous post had quite a bit of information so I thought I would balance things out with a quickie. It’s also fitting for this particular recipe, as it’s, well, a quick one! Ok there is some freezing time involved obviously, but the hands-on part is easy and only takes a few minutes.
Now, you may already be familiar with what some people call “nice cream”. Basically it’s frozen banana blended into a thick and creamy ice cream-like concoction. It’s pretty amazing really. Well you can make variations of this with other flavours, as I did here by adding other ingredients, or you can leave it as is – it’s still delicious even with just banana. Keep in mind the riper the bananas are before they are frozen, the sweeter your ice cream will be. So you can adjust the sweetener accordingly (or even avoid it altogether if you prefer).
I made a raspberry version by adding frozen raspberries, and a chocolate version with cacao powder. Other fruit you could add is mango, peach, pineapple or other berries. I’ve also seen versions with nut butters and you can be sure I’ll trying one with peanut butter!
Before I go I just wanted to say something about the term “nice cream”. I am not using it in my title as you can see, because I disagree with such labels. Calling a certain food group “nice” might imply another food group is not. Regular ice cream is also nice (it’s actually very nice). Sometimes we might prefer a treat that is made from scratch with nutritious ingredients, sometimes we might prefer a treat that is just that. A treat. Even if it’s full of processed sugar (shock horror!) even if we can’t identify every single ingredient on the packet. You guys… it’s fine.
Now, let’s see how to make this four ingredient frozen treat!
