Recipe - raw vegan choc banana "ice-cream"

I make no apologies for the fact this is the easiest recipe in the world as it tastes fab and is healthy too!

1 banana
I tsp cacao powder
1 tsp sweet freedom syrup

Peel the banana and freeze it. I always buy loads of bananas and regularly freeze some when I have a few too many ripe ones - fantastic to use in lots of recipes. (more to come later)

Next day, or some time later....

allow the banana to defrost until it is just mashable with a fork. Mash, or for a creamier version give a quick whizz with a hnad-blender. Stir in the cacao and syrup and enjoy.

  9. I didn't know you could freeze banana. My bananas often get brown and horrible after few days. I should really freeze them than throw it away. Lovely recipe!

    1. Oh, do freeze them. You can also defrost and use in things like banana bread or cookies - loads of things. Never waste a nana again lol.
