Family Snack Ideas Series

I’ve been making frozen banana “ice cream” all along, but some of these additives I didn’t think of so here’s a good snack:

Instant chocolate banana ice cream

The basic recipe is full on flavour and only 3 ingredients. Consider adding other things like oats, linseed or avocado to make the ice cream more wholesome.

For the ice cream:

  • 2 bananas, peeled and frozen
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Great things to add:

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 2 tbsp malt powder
  • 2 tbsp oats or linseed
  • 2 tbsp protein powder of your choice
  • 2 tbsp crushed walnuts to top

To make the ice cream: place all ingredients in a sturdy jug and blend using a stick blender. The ice cream will have the consistency of soft serve.

Return to the freezer for 10 minutes if you prefer a slightly less runny consistency.
