Healthy Banana “Ice-Cream” Recipe (Dairy Free)

Ok, I’ll admit it, it’s not really ice-cream as there is not an ounce of cream anywhere near it. What I can tempt you with is this is a super healthy, tasty alternative to ice-cream that will leave you refreshed and cool without having that slightly guilty “too many calories” type of a feeling. 

This weekend it’s been super hot, so myself  and the toddler have been chilling in the garden, trying to keep cool. Ice-cream is just one of those foods that hits the spot in weather like this. Having heard about frozen bananas making good ice-cream I decided to give it a go. I was very pleasantly suprised.

It’s perfect for children and dairy free too 😉

Homemade Blackberry Frozen Yoghurt

When it’s hot, ice cream calls! However much I love the creamy taste of ice cream, too much of it’s richness does not agree with my tummy or waistline. Frozen yoghurt is a much healthier option and this one has the bonus of being fulled of calcium and fruit with a little added sugar. So yesterday I went for it and got all prepared by whizzing up this delight.

I used frozen fruit from last years blackberry picking, fresh fruit or over ripe fruit would also work but would just need freezing for longer. If you use frozen fruit it’s pretty much ready to eat straight away (as my toddler demonstrated!).  Why not experiment with a range of fruit? Let me know your favourite recipes please.
