Banana Berry Crunch Icream
Ice cream is one of my favourite desserts that I often miss. However, it is loaded with sugar and can come with many other man-made ingredients, like gums and preservatives. I know some fruits are great to freeze and whiz up into a sorbet like consistency (Mango, banana, berries, grapes, peaches, plums or nectarines are great fruits to use), so today I combined frozen banana, frozen blueberries and maple roasted pecans and walnuts. This recipe is all natural and plant-based, so great for vegans or those on a paleo, dairy or grain free diet but I can guarantee those on a mainstream diet will like it too. The banana creates a creamy like consistency very close to gelato. Isn’t it great the little goodies mother nature provides us? Oh and by the way it was absolutely delicious!
1 frozen banana, roughly chopped
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
1 small handful of roasted/activated nuts of your choice.
1. Place banana in the blender and blend for about 30 sec. or until just forms a paste. You don’t want to blend it for too long as it will start to melt.
2. Add blueberries and pulse for 5 seconds so only lightly combined with the banana and some blueberries remain whole.
3. Spoon in a bowl and top with nuts. Maple roasted nuts work really well. Serve immediately.
