It seems rather decadent to have ice cream for breakfast, and unhealthy too, but this recipe couldn’t be better for you!
Would you eat a bowl of natural yoghurt, some banana slices and a drizzle of honey? Well this recipe uses all the same ingredients only blended and frozen in an ice cream machine.
This is a case of having your ice cream and eating it too!
But, you will need to eat your frozen yoghurt on the day you make it.
Sugars and fats are what stop ice cream from seizing up so, since this recipe doesn’t have much of either, you can be sure 24hrs in the freezer will lead to one solid block. If this does happen, you can put chucks into a blender and churn out soft serve, but then you’ll need to eat it fast!
Banana & Honey Frozen Yoghurt
Anna’s very own recipe. Makes approximately half a litre.
500g natural yoghurt (I used low fat)
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons honey
1. Combine ingredients in a processor or blender.
2. Taste for sweetness.
3. Chill according to ice cream machine instructions.
4. Serve (on the same day) with chopped pistachios and a drizzle of honey.
Variation: add ¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom or cinnamon.
