Banana ‘Ice Cream’

I know I have said it before but I just love yogurt, I have no upper limit to how much I can eat, I love it with savoury dishes, sweet, cakes, on it’s own, in soup and frozen. I can eat Greek, live, No Fat and some fruit too.
Sooooo, if you have a similar not so evil vice – then brace yourself for a hurricane is about to sweep through your food world.
We are talking ‘ice cream’ here – mothers come back, dieters come back, Raw eaters come back, vegans come back – just let me finish. This is ultra virtuous and I cannot believe that you will not find a very happy, frequently visited place for it in your repertoire of snacks/puddings/breakfasts etc.
And it is the easiest think you will have tried. Just go look at those over ripe bananas that are about to start spewing forth those little fruit flies – they are ideal, but any banana is good.
Enough talk, here it is …..


Banana ‘Ice Cream’


Start with maybe
3 bananas
I also added Vanilla and raw cocoa nibs (but you do not need to, it doesn’t ‘need’ it.)

Peel banana, cut into chunks.
Spread over a tray or plate (that will fit into your freezer.

Give them at least 30 minutes (depending on your freezer but they are frozen after 30 minutes in mine).

Throw them in your food processor fitted with a blade (this is when I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla), I started mine on medium speed for 2 minutes, then the highest speed for about another 5 minutes.
You may find you will need to stop it every now and then to push the banana down.
The bananas will get increasingly light, fluffy, and smooth.


By the time you’re done, you’ll have a bowl of creamy, smooth, soft ‘ice cream’
You’re done, now scoop it into a bowl and tuck in. I added a sprinkle of raw cocoa nibs (for flavour and to kick up the nutrition even further).


As a treat for children this is surely a no brainer.
If you’re going to serve it at a supper party you can make a raw ‘chocolate sauce’ – just mix 2 tablespoons of agave nectar and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder for each 2 portions and
drizzle it over the top.
I can not describe just how delicious this is! You just have to make some .. it’s too easy, there is nothing to stop you, and yes, you are very welcome.

Come and see me on Saturdays’ at Bermondsey Square Farmers Market in Southwark. It’s just off Tower Bridge Road, a short walk from The White Cube, Southbank and Borough Market.
All new customers will get a lovely washable cotton shopper as a ‘Thank you and please come again next week’ (Whie stocks last!)

Every Friday at about 6 pm GMT I publish photos of the items I have cooked for market. Have a look at the Facebook page.

    • That sounds lovely to, I’ve also found that if you want to have some ready for when friends are popping round – just make up the ‘ice cream and place scoops onto a cling film or parchment lined tray and pop straight back onto the freezer and there they will wait until you need them.


  1. This looks absolutely delicious and healthy. I can not wait to try it! I already have a few ripe bananas. Thanks for posting this!
