Use up leftover Christmas fruit for this tasty version of an ice cream. It’s perfect for the upcoming summer days and tastes just like chocolate ice-cream but is better and healthier for you!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 bananas, frozen
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut cream or nut milk
  • 3 teaspoons cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoons honey

Toppings:

  • A few pieces of almonds or walnuts
  • Dark chocolate pieces
  • Your choice of fruits (optional)

METHOD

  1. Add the frozen banana and cream/milk to a high-speed blender or food processor and pulse to a crumble. Continue to pulse until the mixture becomes creamy and smooth.
  2. Add the cacao powder and pulse until combined.
  3. Add the mixture to a bowl sprinkle across your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Fact: Cacao has the good amount of vitamin C and magnesium, which helps in protecting the skin and keeping it healthy. It also provides hydration to the skin, which is a must for a younger looking skin. It also heals wounds and scars quickly due to containing omega 6 fatty acids, so next time you’re wanting a skin boost, sprinkle some cacao powder in your ‘’nice cream’’.
