Quick & Easy “Ice Cream” (Dairy Free)

When I  could eat dairy, I didn’t particularly like ice cream.  For as long as I can remember I never have.  People couldn’t understand how I could pass up on a scoop of mint-choc chip or creamy vanilla but I just didn’t enjoy it.  It was either too creamy – I never liked cream either, far too sweet or some ice creams would leave a strange after taste in my mouth, probably from weird ingredients!

Mango Ice cream

So now you’re probably wondering why on earth have I created a recipe for ice cream!  Well, this technically isn’t ice cream, it’s blended frozen fruit, yet it looks like and has the consistency of ice cream.  Luckily for me it tastes loads better than all the ice cream I’ve tried in the past.

The base of this recipe is frozen banana.  Those bananas which sit in your fruit bowl that are very brown and most people throw them out, these are the bananas you need!  Simply peel them, pop them in a freezer bag and store in the freezer until you’re ready to use.

The combination of flavours is entirely up to you, I’ve included two different flavours below but try any flavour combinations you’d like.  Throw in some dark chocolate chips, add vanilla extract, use some peaches whatever grabs your fancy!

Serves 2

Ingredients

For Berry Ice Cream

-1 frozen banana – peeled

-1 cup frozen mixed berries

For Mango Ice Cream

-1 frozen banana – peeled

How To Make

Place the ingredients of your ice cream in a blender and blend.  You may have to stop every so often and scrape down the sides.  It will take a while but stick with it and you’ll get lovely smooth ice cream.

Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer.

Enjoy 🙂
