We fell in love this morning!
It is a long weekend so we made wholemeal pancakes with banana ice cream and raspberries. The kids were a bit amazed at the idea of having ice cream for breakfast!
Banana Ice Cream
3 frozen, skinless bananas (slice in chunks and freeze them when they are really ripe but not quite as ripe as you would use for banana bread).
Blitz them up in a food processor and voilà! you have ice cream! We served it up straight away as it was a last-minute addition to our pancakes.
If you find that it isn’t blitzing that well in your processor or you want a creamy ice cream a bit faster, add an unfrozen banana and that helps with the blitzing.
It was amazingly creamy and just like ice cream.
We added some extras this time as it was a ‘special’ day:
2-3 Tbsp of Cocao
1 Tbsp of maple syrup
Other additions could include: coconut, nuts, and other frozen fruit for a different taste. Frozen strawberries work really well with the banana.
For a creamier dessert, try adding some greek yogurt or try freezing them in popsicles (ice blocks).
