'NANA ICE-CREAM

Growing up on junk food, you learn to depreciate the raw and natural taste of whole foods. When I committed to changing my lifestyle habits as a 19 year old, I got my taste back - meaning, I learned to enjoy and savour the natural flavours of fruits and vegetables.

Unless I'm at a high-end restaurant where the sorbet is freshly made, I don't eat store-bought ice cream anymore. Why would I when it's so simple to make at home yourself and super delicious + nourishing?

If you're not familiar with using frozen bananas to make your own version of ice-cream, know that the flavour combinations are endless! Below is one of my favourite go-to desserts.


'NANA ICE-CREAM (SERVES 2-4)

Print recipe HERE.

Ingredients:

  • 1 very ripe banana, peeled, sliced and frozen*
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2+ tbsp. filtered water or nut milk

*Peel and slice a super ripe banana (with brown spots). Place it in a small zip-lock bag and freeze overnight.

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in high-speed blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. You may need to stop every so often to stir mixture before blending again. Add more water, if needed.
     
  2. Eat immediately as this stuff melts faster than ice-cream.
