Healthy Eating Month: Post from Barbara at Winos and Foodies

Barbara from Winos and Foodies has a wonderfully inspiring blog and I was very thrilled when she emailed me her post for healthy eating month. I love that Barbara has really thought outside the square and given us a healthy version of ice cream!! Be sure to check out Winos and Foodies as Barbara has a competition to win a masterclass with Tetsuya !

"I made this style of ice cream using bananas and strawberries when my boys were little and one of them had an intolerance to milk. It has had a bit of a resurgence recently and I've seen variations of other blogs. I've started making it again as an attempt to get my husband to eat more fruit.


6 large bananas (or 8 smaller ones)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
80 grams chocolate broken into chunks

Peel bananas and chop into chunks,place in a container and freeze overnight.
Remove bananas from freezer and sit on bench for 20 minutes.
Place in blender and process until smooth and creamy.
Add cocoa and chocolate and continue to process until blended.
Serve immediately for a soft icecream.
If serving later you will need to remove from freezer to soften a little before serving.

Once you have the banana base you can add any number of frozen fruits for a different ice cream. A favourite of mine is banana/peach, made by freezing equal amounts of bananas and peaches and processing.

Here is one I made with frozen berries."

Looks Fabulous Barbara! Thanks so much for your recipe!

By the way, I'd consider it a privilege to have my own recipe featured.
