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?

ICE CREAM O'CLOCK!!









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!

  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;-)

  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
