Yield : plenty

What you will need :

  • 2 large very ripe, frozen bananas
  • 2/3 cup natural yoghurt
  • 30 mls good quality maple syrup, or more to taste
  • 45 mls coconut cream
  • a little toasted coconut to serve if you’re feeling zany

What you will need to do :

Chuck your lot into a food processor and whizz the crap out of it until it’s smooth. Eat immediately as soft serve, or freeze.

If freezing, pull it out of the freezer after an hour or so, and blitz it again to break up any ice crystals, and pop it back in the freezer.

This little baby freezes pretty solid, and without additives there is only two ways you can deal with this –

1) pull it out of the freezer 15 minutes before you want to eat it.

2) whack a shot of vodka in it as it changes the freeze temperature.

I leave it up to you.

    Even though it’s fall here and the days are shrinking and the temperatures are dropping that yogurt looks and sounds fantastic!! Who says you can’t have frozen yogurt when it’s cold? Not me!

    I usually make the plain frozen banana version. Last weekend we tried this, without the coconut cream, it was sensational. Today we tried with the coconut cream and it was a fail :(. Not soft serve just runny. We have put it into kids ice block moulds and will have to wait and see. Fingers crossed because the runny mix was delicious.

      I wonder if I got my amounts wrong in the write up? Or my bananas were really big? Mine was defo soft serve. Alternatively, you could freeze the lot for a bit, pull it out and blitz it to break up the crystals and freeze again. Let me know if the ice blocks work or are icy.

      Sorry about the fail. I’ll test it again happily!

        I chucked a third frozen banana in because I also wondered about banana size. I need to put my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer that would have sorted everything out!
