  1. Place sliced bananas in a container and freeze for at least 6 hours.

  2. Remove bananas from the freezer and place in a food processor with 1 tablespoon of the plant milk. Using a small amount of plant milk is the trick as you don't want the nice cream to go too runny.

  3. Blend for a short time until smooth, adding a few drops of plant milk at a time until you reach the right consistency.

  4. Scoop into bowls, add a side of fresh or defrosted berries and top with optional toppings.

  • 6 medium sized bananas, sliced or broken into roughly 5 pieces each

  • 4 tbsp plant-based milk

  • 2 cups of fruit such as fresh or frozen berries

  • 4 tbsp toppings such as chopped hazelnuts or pistachios, peanut butter, mint leaves, coconut flakes


You can also add the fruit or toppings to the blender at step 2 (or 2 tablespoons cocoa) to create different nice cream flavours such as strawberry, peanut or chocolate.

Chef's tips

This tastes just as good as regular ice cream but is super healthy; I love it!

Best eaten immediately as sadly it does not freeze well once blended.

This is delicious served on wholemeal pancakes [link to recipe] for breakfast!
