Strawberry Nana Icecream

Banana icecream

We are still enjoying some warm weather here in beautiful co. Cork, so this week I am going to treat you to a really simple yet healthy “ice cream” recipe. And not too many words, promise! I’m currently writing this from my temporary outdoor office. God bless the inventor of laptops, is all I can say. Yay to flexibility and working from home. I just love this warm weather and can’t get enough of it so even though I am working, I’m grateful I can do so much of it from my own computer, outside, at home. Life is good.

If you haven’t yet tried “Nana icecream”, you are seriously missing out. You will need to be a little ahead of yourself to make this recipe, since the bananas need to be frozen for a couple of hours, at least. But once you get into the swing of chopping up your very ripe bananas (instead of throwing them out) and putting them in the freezer, you’ll have this yummy treat/dessert/breakfast/snack/whatever you want to call it, whipped up in no time. For those non-banana lovers out there, fear not, you can hardly taste the banana flavour, especially if you blend the frozen banana with another fruit or something like cacao powder, for a chocolate hit. Perfect for anyone who needs to be dairy free and feel like their missing out.

You will need as food processor or a good blender for this recipe.

Strawberry Nana Icecream

Serves 2

3 medium sized bananas, peeled, chopped & frozen

6-7 fresh strawberries (depending on size), washed, hullled & halved

1-2 tbsp coconut milk

Fresh berries or edible flower to decorate with – optional

Place all ingredients into your food processor or blender. Note, a handblender won’t be strong enough for this job.

Blend until you have a smooth looking “ice cream”. Serve immediately in individual bowls. Savour a guilt free treat, while doing something good for your health.

This “ice cream” won’t refreeze so needs to be eaten straightaway. But, sure, where’s the harm in that?

    Hi Linn, i make this type of ice cream all the time and freeze it in silicone muffin cases so i have individual portions – i find it still yummy after re freezing – what did you find happened when you re froze it?It might be a bit ‘icy’ but still yummy! I usually use coconut cream whcih has separated from the milk and use the watery bit in smoothies – maybe this makes a duifference?

      What a smart idea Liz! I just got a small silicone ice cube tray which I intend to use for raw chocolates.
