Free-From Friday: Non dairy ice cream

By Michelle Lynette
Probably the easiest and healthiest pud you'll ever whip up

Banana Ice Cream - 1This recipe gave me renewed respect for the humble banana, the only ingredient you need to make a creamy, refined sugar-free, non dairy ice cream.

Bananas have fallen out of favour recently due to their being rich in naturally-occurring sugars. But they’re also packed with these essential nutrients.

1. Prebiotics: These help the growth of your healthy gut bacteria. For those suffering from stomach ulcers, they’re effective at protecting against stomach acid and relieving the worst symptoms.

2. Potassium: This is great for helping to prevent muscle cramping, so a pre-exercise banana is a great choice for active bods.

3. Vitamin B6: Reducing swelling, protecting against type II diabetes and helping with the production of white blood cells – this multi-tasking vit does them all.

1. Peel the bananas, add to a container and freeze for at least 4 hours.

2. Remove from the freezer and allow to thaw for about 10 – 15 minutes, until it’s soft enough to chop into 1-inch pieces.

3. Add to a high speed blender like the Vitamix for 10 – 20 seconds. Other blenders may take between 1-2 minutes.
