In true summer style, I thought that now would be an appropriate time to share my new favourite ice cream recipe. If you haven’t tried banana ice cream yet, then let me tell you, you’re seriously missing out! This is an amazing little trick to create a truly delicious treat, that pretty much tastes like ice cream, but can be made from as little as one ingredient.. a banana! To make this a little bit more special, I decided to flavour it with some gorgeous mixed berries and berry protein powder for an extra nutritional boost. This also makes this a perfect post-workout dish, with good sources of carbohydrates from the fruit and then the protein.
Berries are undoubtedly one of my upmost favoruite fruits and I eat them at least once a day. Not only do I think that they taste incredible and pair with pretty much anything (even in savoury dishes like salads), but these brightly coloured gems are micronutrient dense and filled with antioxidants! Berries are also a good source of fibre, which is something I like to try and make sure that I’m getting enough of, in order to keep my tummy and digestion happy.
This fruity ice cream makes the perfect summer dessert, that doesn’t compromise on taste, whilst being packed with nutritious ingredients. Even though there’s no added sugars in here (not even natural ones like maple syrup!) the bananas still make this incredibly sweet and indulgent. You could serve it in bowls topped with fresh fruit like I’ve done here, or maybe like a thicker smoothie bowl topped with granola for breakfast. Yep, that’s right.. this is just fruit and protein powder, so I really don’t see any reason why this couldn’t be a breakfast dish?..
