One of my favourite summertime treats would have to be ice cream. Nothing beats a cold creamy ice cream on a hot summers day. As a general rule I try and avoid eating too many processed foods with added sugar, so was so super excited when I discovered that whipped frozen banana not only takes on the consistency of creamy ice cream, but is sweet from the naturally occurring fructose (sugar) in the banana….so does not require any added sugars. Even better you can change the flavour by adding pretty much any thing you like, not to mention that the kids will love it too! I have included a recipe for one of my favourite flavour combinations below, plus a decadent chocolate variation, but let your imagination run wild. Other frozen fruits such as raspberries also work really well. Nutrition analysis is for the mango version.
