Healthy Ice Cream Recipe

This recipe came about after going out for summer walk over the South Downs with a friend who decided to.restore herself with a blackcurrant ice cream; knowing her ice cream was laden with dairy, saturated fat and sugar didn’t make it any less tempting.  So as soon as I got home I made this recipe which is sugar-free, saturated-fat-free, dairy-free and low GI and much lower in calories. Since then I have been working on perfecting and find it makes and excellent breakfast during warm weather as well as satisfying dessert.

Having learnt how to make this sort of ice cream, healthy and delicious, brimming with all the goodness of fresh fruit and Flax Farm cold-pressed linseed (flaxseed) oil and ground linseed (omega-3, soluble and insoluble fibre, antioxidants,lignans)  I am never going to buy conventional ice creams and sorbets ever again. Check out our recipes for other varieties to keep your healthy with these super treats that are somewhere between conventional ice creams, sorbet and semifreddo desserts.

Instructions
  1. If your fruit is fresh, peel bananas, remove stalks and tails from berries and pop them into the freezer for a couple of hours to freeze completely.
  2. Put frozen fruit and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. If you prefer just blend until nearly smooth but retains a few small chunks of banana and berries, the added texture makes it look gorgeous and makes it even more delicious.
  3. Serve immediately. You can put it back in the freezer but if refrozen it is best to put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes to come round to the correct texture.
  4. Enjoy.
