A scoop of ice cream is often a guilty pleasure so we’ve found the perfect alternative. Banana nice-cream is high in fibre and all the other nutrients like potassium and folate, making this a healthy and delicious dessert.


  • 6 bananas, sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey


  1. Slice the bananas and freeze overnight or until firm.
  2. Place the bananas into a food processor and blend, scraping down several times until the bananas have turned into a creamy puree.
  3. Add two tablespoons of honey and mix until combined.
  4. Serve straight away for a creamy, delicious ice cream or refreeze for later.

The ice cream will be a little icy if eaten later.
