After  babysitting my nephews and niece a couple of weeks ago I’ve decided to tweak my healthy Ice cream recipe for their taste and they loved it so much I just thought I’ll make a quick recipe and share this vanilla mapley delight with you gorgeous guys and gals. Hope you’ll like it and have a great Valentine’s Day kind of a weekend 🙂

What you’ll need:

Approx 9 Ripe Medium Bananas

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

(Optional) 1 Tbs Vanilla Vegan Protein Powder

2 Tbs Pure Maple Syrup

1 Tsp Maple Flavour Extract

150 Non Dairy Dark Chocolate (roughly chopped)

100 Grams Sweet Biscuits (I used some leftover Lotus ones, but digestive biscuits or Graham crackers will do fine)

100 Grams Sweet Roasted Pecans


Food Processor

An empty stomach 🙂

How to?

Make sure your bananas are ripe and then just pill and dice them roughly. Put the bananas in the container of your choice and leave them in the freezer overnight. Once the bananas are frozen and stiff separate them and put them your food processor. If your handling some “separation anxiety”, and find it impossible to separate that huge bananaey clump, just let them thaw for another 10 minutes or so in room temperature.

Process your bananas  with your Maple syrup, extract and all those other flavoury delights until you reach a smooth and soft texture Ice Cream texture, add the chocolate, and keep blending for another 30 seconds before adding your biscuits and pecans and that’s it!

You can even add some blueberries, maple syrup and coconut cream on top if you’re feeling fancy like I did 🙂

Lots of love
