Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

00:5
Easy Recipe
SERVES 4 Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 350g Frozen Banana Chunks
  • 3 Tablespoons of Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Nut Butter (You choose!)
  • 2 Medjool Dates (pitted)
  • 1 Pint of Vegetable Stock
  • 8ml Almond Milk

HOW TO MAKE

Remove the frozen banana’s from the freezer and allow to thaw slightly for approx. 10 minutes.

Pour a little almond milk over the blades at the bottom of the blender jug. This will help to lubricate them.

Then add the slightly thawed fruit followed by all the other ingredients.

Secure the lid onto the jug and place the blender jug onto the blender base.

Press the stop/start button on the touch control panel once, to illuminate all the icons.

Select the program, which is represented by an ice cream icon. This is a 95-second program and it will start automatically once pressed. The digital timer on the touch control panel will count down, allowing you to see the amount of time remaining.

Throughout the blending cycle, use the tamper stick provided to push the produce down towards the blades and away from the sides of the blender jug.

When the program has finished the blender will stop automatically. Only once the blades have come to a complete stop, should you remove the jug from the base and take off the lid. Depending on your recipe, you may want to run the program for a second time to get the desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy! Or, spoon into an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Natural, homemade ‘ice-creams’ don’t last quite as long as the ‘shop bought’ ones as they don’t contain all the stabilisers and other added nasties. However, we know which we’d prefer!

Top Tips

  • Make sure your bananas are super ripe before peeling, chopping and freezing (brown and spotty is the key to flavour!)
  • When freezing fruit, yourself, make sure it’s not all clumped together, otherwise it will come out as a frozen lump and be too hard to separate.
  • Frozen fruit must be thawed a little before blending. However, if it thaws too much, you may end up with something that resembled a thick custard rather than ice-cream (but it should still taste good!).
  • A rubber spatula or wooden spoon are the best utensils for encouraging the ice cream out of the Juice Master Super Blender jug, to avoid blunting the blades and scratching the jug.
