‘Treats’ over Easter …. oh my goodness …. the amount of sugar, artificial colours and preservatives my kids have been given … eek!!
So we have had a few days of indulgence but are back to normal eating now. However, the kids are still on school holidays and are asking for ‘treats’.
Tonight we are off to a movie night and this one is perfect to take along – treats for everyone, treats that will be kind to their little bodies!
- 8 frozen, very ripe, medium-sized bananas
- 2 tbsp chocolate hazelnut spread/chocolate seed spread/Sunflower seed butter *
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 5 tbsp of my Chocolate protein powder mix**
Place all ingredients, except bananas into a high-powered processor or blender and blitz until combined.
Then drop bananas through top chute onto spinning blades. Process until well combined and creamy.
In a thermal cooker use speed 5 to combine the initial ingredients and while you add the bananas, then up to speed 7 for 10 seconds, scrape down and repeat.
Eat immediately for ‘soft serve’ type ice cream, or place into a freezer safe dish, cover and freeze for a couple of hours so you can ‘scoop’ into cones.
Serve on its own or with topping of your choice. Makes enough for 12-14 decent sized scoops.
*If you use the sunflower seed butter you might also like to add in 1-2 tbsp maple syrup since it doesn’t have the sweetness of the dates in it that the other spreads do.
**if you haven’t made the protein mix you can roughly replace it with 1.5tbsp coconut sugar, 1.5tbsp cocoa and 2 tbsp almond/seed meal.
