This Vegan & Dairy Free Banana Nutty Nice Cream is a wonderful healthy alternative to ice-cream but just as satisfying

Nutty Banana Nice Cream

VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE

If you are not yet familiar with using bananas to make ‘ice-cream’, you are in for a real treat. Their texture once frozen and blended is like the most delicious, creamy sweet ice-cream you’ve ever tasted. The addition of nut butter adds some healthy fats and plant protein which slows down the release of fruit sugars from the banana and helps prevent a spike in our blood sugar. Which is a good thing!

INGREDIENTS

1 ripe banana, peeled, sliced and frozen
2 teaspoons of almond  or hazelnut butter
3 tablespoons coconut or almond milk


STEP-BY-STEP

Slice and freeze your banana the night before you make this.

In a small food processor or blender, whizz up the banana and nut butter with 2 tablespoons of milk. Push the mixture down the sides of the bowl and add another tablespoon of the milk. Use just enough to get it whizzed up smoothly without becoming runny. Eat immediately, as it defrosts quickly (although I’m sure I won’t need to tell you twice!).
