Mango, Lime & Baobab Nana Icecream

DSC_0439 (3) DSC_0442

This totally tropical ‘ice cream’ (otherwise known as ‘nana ice cream’ or ‘nice cream’) made from frozen fruit makes a lovely, refreshing start to the day or end to a summer meal! It doesn’t taste like traditional ice-cream, more like a sorbet with a soft serve texture, but if you’re like me and adore bananas and mangos then it’s an amazing replacement for your standard dairy ice cream that’s full of refined sugar and lots of other nasties! Hence why this can be enjoyed at any time of the day! I love topping mine with granola and frozen berries!

2 frozen bananas,
2 tsp Baobab (I recommend Aduna Baobab),
Juice of 1 lime,
1/2 frozen mango,
Splash of coconut water.

Add all of your ingredients to a HIGH POWERED blender (I use the Froothie Optimum 9200 Next Generation because it’s an excellent power blender – it can blitz solid frozen fruit into a smooth silky ice-cream in seconds!). Blend on a medium speed until smooth – you may have to stop and stir a couple of times to ensure its all evenly blended. Add a dash more liquid if needed. Once you have the desired consistency, add to a bowl and top with your favourite toppings. I used Cacao & Pecan Granola, raspberries, pumpkin and hemp seeds. Enjoy :)

FYI – How the Optimum 9200 Next Generation compares to other blenders in its class: ** Here is the link comparing the specifications of the equivalent Vitamix with the Optimum 9200 by Froothie. You can see that the Optimum 9200 does miles better and is cheaper too :)

The Optimum 9200 Next Generation blender is a commercial-grade super blender designed for longevity, versatility and BRAWN. It will set you up to make amazing soups, the silkiest smoothies, super smooth dips, nut butters, ice cream and more. You can read my full review here.
