Easy Raspberry / Fruit ‘Ice Cream’

Ice creamI make this often. I usually have a bag of frozen banana pieces in the freezer in which I can just add any other frozen or canned fruit I have. Yesterday was raspberries, grown in summer and frozen free flow.

Raspberries

Just put frozen bananas (1 per serving is generous) into a kitchen whiz along with whatever other fruit you desire – I used around 1/2 cup of raspberries. The fruit must also be frozen. If you wish you can add 2 tablespoons of sweetened fruit yogurt or a little sugar or honey.Whiz for 2 – 3 minutes until it’s smooth and creamy. That’s all there is to it. Last week I made this with tinned mangoes, just drained and froze them for an hour and added 2 tablespoons of apricot yogurt. It was absolutely delicious. Now I am trying to cut down on food buying I didn’t have yogurt so just sweetened with a wee bit of honey.Image

Bananas make a great base for frozen desserts. Just banana on it’s own done this way make a very good whipped cream alternative, I have seen similar recipes on the net with all sorts of ideas. What I will be trying soon is chocolate and walnut – bananas, cocoa, little honey and vanilla whizzed, and chopped walnuts folded in.

The bananas lose much of their flavour done in this way and you really just get the flavour of whatever fruit you are adding.
