Never bin your spotted bananas again with this magic trick for turning frozen bananas into a healthy alternative to ice-cream. 

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 ripe bananas (the more ripe the better), cut into chunks

3-4 tbsp water or dairy or non-dairy milk

2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds (optional)

2 tbsp ready-made toffee or chocolate sauce (optional)


  1. Cut your bananas into chunks and pop them in a freezer bag.
  2. Freeze for at least one hour, or until frozen through.
  3. When ready to eat throw the banana into a food processor and whizz until smooth.
  4. Add enough of the water or milk to achieve a creamy texture.
  5. Scoop into 4 bowls or glasses, then top with the sauce and nuts – or anything else you have handy.
