Dairy Free Ice-Cream

Dairy Free Ice-Cream

The summer has well and truly heated up in Singapore! We are sitting in 35 degrees and high humidity. While I am not usually big on deserts, this evening we went out to dinner for sushi and my son was looking longingly at the ice-creams at the back of the menu. Matcha Green Tea and Chocolate ice-creams. One he won’t end up eating (but liked the idea of) and the other one I wasn’t so keen on him eating. 

So I decided to make our own ice-cream instead. I had put some bananas in the freezer to try out making my own dairy free ice-cream a couple of days ago, so whipping this up was pretty quick. I have to say, that with these ingredients, I won’t be so worried about skipping desert to be healthy anymore 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 50g frozen raspberries or other fruit of your choice
  • 10 pistachios, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Place 2 ripe bananas in the freezer over night (or longer if you like)
  2. Carefully peel the bananas using a sharp knife
  3. Slice the bananas into 0.5cm wide slices with a sharp knife
  4. Place the bananas and frozen fruit into a food processor with the metal knife blade (you could also use a blender, but it is a bit trickier to get it evenly blended without melting)
  5. Pulse the fruit several times until it has broken up into small grains of fruit.
  6. Turn the foodprocessor dial onto a medium setting to churn the frozen fruit into a creamy texture. You will need to stop it quite a few times and wipe the mixture down the side of the bowl in order to get an even texture.
  7. Watch it closely and stop it as soon as it has turned into an evenly blended ice-cream.
  8. Serve immediately topped with finely chopped pistachios to garnish
