We're not going to try and pretend that this healthy version of ice cream will replace that tub of Ben & Jerry's you buy with the intention of saving it for the occasional treat, but demolish before it makes it to the freezer. Been there. We will say that this comes pretty close...and, as there are only 3 ingredients, that are all natural, you can eat it for breakfast and laugh in the face of guilt. Winner.
This Banana, Cashew and Coconut ice cream is inspired by the flavours of tropical Kerala, in the South of India. In Kerala, your garden is your supermarket. Bananas, Coconuts, Mangoes, Cashews, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Pepper, Tea and Coffee are just a few things that are readily available. Watch out for the mangoes though, there's a similar looking fruit that has been dubbed 'The Suicide Fruit,' as it's seeds cause instant death if eaten...a bit more risky than Tesco's then.
Luckily, this recipe is dairy, guilt and risk free, as well as being super easy!
2. Turn on and mix until smooth.
3. That's it! Quicker than you can say Ben & Jerry's. Almost.
We didn't add any honey or maple syrup as the ice cream is naturally quite sweet. Feel free to add as per your taste.
For decoration, we toasted some cashew nuts drizzled with honey - delicious when served warm on top of your ice cream!
