Real Food Ice Cream Sundae

If you are looking for an ice cream sundae recipe that is guilt free this one is as healthy as you can get

You can easily make really tasty real food ice cream, but only if you like banana.  There may be other ways, and if you know of any please let us know

You can happily healthily eat this banana ice cream but probably not in large quantities because although there is fibre and no added sugar, it will still give you a big sugar hit.

If you don't like banana there is still the possibility of making delicious sorbet using only fruit.

Banana ice cream sundae

The nearest you are likely get to a healthy ice cream or an ice cream sundae is one made from bananas - at home

And it is really really really easy to do and is AMAZING

In fact it's not exactly a recipe - the only ingredient is banana.  You can of course add other stuff for different flavours and colours but if all you have is banana then it will still taste delicious

How to make banana ice cream

This is how simple it is to make banana ice cream

1 slice a banana.  The older your banana is, the sweeter your ice cream will taste

2 freeze the slices in a single layer

This will take an hour or so.  You want them completely frozen but not solid or your processor won't cope.  

You can also freeze them in advance then take them out of the freezer to soften a little before processing

3 Blend.  I use a stick blender, but you can use a food processor, liquidiser or smoothie maker etc

4 the ice cream may be too soft - if so return to the freezer for half an hour or so

5 Eat

There is absolutely no need to add sugar or  sweetener

but of course...

...An ice cream Sundae should have more than one colour or flavour in it.....

An ice cream sundae needs a good mix of colours flavours fruit nuts and sauces

You can easily make different flavours and colours of y our ice cream by adding other fruits and powders such as berries, cocoa and matcha and also natural flavourings such as mint - or indeed real mint leaves - you'll have to experiment there because I've haven't tried tried it yet

For a pink colour add some strawberries or raspberries to the mix

For chocolate add a heaped teaspoon of cocoa per banana.  I mean real cocoa, not drinking chocolate which has added sugar and sometimes milk solids

Darker berries such as blackberries, black currants and blueberries/bilberries will give a bluish purplish colour

But remember  you will always still have the underlying flavour of banana too

Other flavours you could experiment with are rum and raisin, pistachio (or other nuts) lemon, and cookie crumbs

And of course you will need a sauce too

A few examples:

How to make banana ice cream in different colours and flavours

Making your banana ice cream sundae

Just choose 2 or more flavours of ice cream and layer them in a glass with fresh berries and nuts.  Then top with a fruity sauce

But remember - theres still a lot of sugar in this ice cream even if it is all natural - so keep your portion size to roughly the amount of fruit you could mangae to eat if it hadn't first been blended

Now go and enjoy your healthy treat

Just as an aside:

why is it called a sundae?

Maybe this is the answer
