A delicious and easy Mango Banana Nicecream (Ice-Cream). Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Vegan recipe.
Winter is fast approaching here in the UK. Most of the leaves have fallen and the temperature is like the coldest setting of my fridge. I’m sorting through my closet for all my winter gear, whilst hesitantly packing my summer memories away.
I would really love to be living somewhere that hardly experienced the cold. Maybe a tropical island. It’s no fun feeling completely rigid and constantly having to break your shiver.
Seriously, do you like cold weather?
Yes, there are upsides to the winter; Thanksgiving (for my US folks), Christmas, the New Year etc, but I feel like they are so much more fun when you don’t have to worry about losing your fingers and toes.
Summer on the other hand? Beautiful. Sun rays beaming, cosy and warm winds, BBQ’s and get-togethers and endless amounts of ice-cream! (I know I sound like a kid haha)
So. The reason for this post is to try and relive some of these summer memories.
Banana Ice Cream. The awesome treat that is both delicious and healthy. Not to mention easy. This delicious spin uses simple mangoes to take you to your own tropical island.
Will you join me to bring back the summer in your home? Just for a sweet moment.. whilst you sit infront of a heater lol.
- 1 cup of Frozen Mangoes (diced, for easier processing)
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1-2 tablespoons of Coconut Milk or Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract or 1/4 teaspoon of Ground Vanilla
- 1 teaspoon of Mint Juice
- A squeeze of Lime Juice
- Coconut Sugar for dusting
Take your mangoes and banana out and leave them to thaw for about 15-20 minutes. You really don't want to skip this step. I learned the hard way and I'm now sourcing a replacement blade for my food processor.
Using a food processor or a high speed blender, add in all your ingredients (including any optional). Process on high till fruit has broken down and mixture becomes creamy. Add in the extra tablespoon of milk if needed. You may need to turn it off and either scrape down the sides or give it a little shake before continuing.
Once creamy, serve and enjoy.
You don't want to over process this ice-cream as the heat can cause the contents to melt and not give you the texture of ice-cream. This also comes out more like soft-serve ice-cream.
