Instant banana ice cream

Instant banana ice cream

This easy banana ice cream makes a great healthy dessert for the child in all of us.

4 very ripe bananas, peeled, cut into chunks
¼ tsp vanilla essence
3-4 tbsp sugar, honey or sweetener, to taste
150ml/5fl oz buttermilk or 150g/5½oz Greek-style yoghurt

Preparation method
Spread the banana chunks out on a tray and transfer to the freezer. Leave the banana in the freezer until frozen all the way through (about one hour).

Place the frozen banana chunks into a food processor. Add the vanilla, sugar, honey or sweetener and half of the buttermilk (or yoghurt). Turn on the processor and blend for a few moments. Then, while the processor is still running, pour in the remaining buttermilk in a thin, steady stream (if you are using yoghurt, just tip it all in and blend).

Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve at once.
