Banana and Spirulina Ice cream

Warm weather and ice cream? A match made in sweet floral spring and summer dreams!

And when thoughts of cones and wafers wriggle to the fore, a happy and healthy alternative begs an audience.

Deceptive in colour, this gracefully light green frozen yogurt suggests mint, though instead a most welcome soothing and softly banana flavour beguiles our taste buds.

Taste, tastes truly terrific when at its centre is nourishment and love.

Spirulina is the Mermaid of oceanic nurturing; her healing properties echo through this cool delight - deepest green, mellowed by beautiful banana - ooh a complimenting combination ensues;-)

This seemingly decadent delight dives you into a cleansing and fruitful experience, with audacious algae in toe, light, though a truly sweet indulgence is yours for the taking.

However you like to eat your ice cream, be it....

·       In a cone
·       Spooned into a hot chocolate
·       Simply on its own
·       Or drizzled with a lovely sauce

May this one bring a smile to your face. My son gave this recipe top marks, it’s a winner with children and adults alike and much healthier than anything available in the shops - and you don't need an ice cream machine either!

What time is is it?


Banana and Spirulina Ice cream

Bananas, 4 peeled
Greek yogurt, 500g
Sweet freedom, 100ml
Spirulina, ½ tsp
Vanilla essence 1 tsp

BLEND all of the above ingredients.
POUR into a suitable sized container.
PLACE in the freezer.
STIR every half hour or so to prevent crystallization for a two hour period.
SERVE when the sun shines or the moment takes you.

* I love this with some gorgeous mint choc sauce on top. Recipe coming soon . . . Watch this space;-)
* Note - if you've left this wonder in the fridge over night, take it out at least twenty minutes before serving to revisit creamyliciousness!


  1. Wow, love the colour of that ice cream!

  5. Thank you everyone! Hope you enjoy it - I'd love to hear more of your thoughts.

    Jayasri, you can get capsules that simply pull apart, in the powdered form, and one capsule is about right for this recipe, roughly 1/2 tsp. Any good chemist or health food shop will sell them. Tablet form isn't ideal to cook with.

    I hope you can find some, it's a real gem to cook with and so healthy too;-)

  6. wat a fantastic treat .....loved it..:) ice cream color is fascinating..:P
    Tasty Appetite

  7. I love this shade of green too Jay:) Suggests mint, but is indeed banana!

  8. I have really bad blood circulation and spirulina is supposed to be really good for it. The powder looks disgusting but if I can have it in ice-cream then I'm all for it! Xx
