I’ve tried making ice cream like this several times, and once had a wee gadget that did the job, but broke very quickly. It just was not powerful enough to pulverise the frozen fruit on a regular basis. I’ve found that adding banana to any fruit, gives it the taste of ice cream, and sometimes a little avocado thrown in can help as well.
- 350g Frozen Strawberries (optional – remove the green stems before freezing)
- 250g Frozen Banana (peel the banana, and slice before freezing)
- Optional – 4 drops of Madagascan Vanilla Essence
Mix the strawberries and bananas and add the optional vanilla essence if desired.
Add the fruit to the blender jug.
Blend until smooth.
Add the ice cream to a bowl, or a tub for putting in the freezer. To use from the freezer, leave out for 10 – 30 minutes, then stir well to achieve the ice-cream texture.
Serve with chopped nuts, flaked almonds or chopped dates.
