Coconut Oil: Nature’s Perfect Ingredient

I love making this at the weekend as it feels as though you’re indulging in a decadent ice cream sundae. However, it’s dairy-free and about as healthy as it comes – there’s the amazing health benefits you get from the potassium found in the bananas, while the gentle sweetness from the cinnamon curbs sugar cravings. The lucuma powder makes it a little sweeter and adds a butterscotch-like flavour to the dish.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 strawberries, for dipping

For the chocolate sauce

Quantity Ingredient
2 teaspoons raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons lucy bee coconut oil
1 teaspoon almond milk

For the ice cream

Quantity Ingredient
2 medium-sized ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
2 strawberries
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lucuma powder, (optional)
80ml almond milk

Method

  1. To make the chocolate sauce, put the ingredients in a small pan and gently melt, stirring until smooth and taking care it doesn’t burn. Dip the four strawberries into the chocolate sauce and transfer to the fridge to set. Set aside any remaining chocolate sauce, for serving.
  2. Put the frozen bananas into a blender with the strawberries, cinnamon and lucuma, if using. With the motor running, slowly pour in the almond milk and blend until it reaches an ice cream-like texture. You may need to stop the blender and give it a stir with a spoon until it reaches the correct, thick consistency.
  3. Spoon into chilled bowls (to stop it melting too quickly), top with the dipped strawberries and drizzle over any remaining chocolate sauce.
