Vegan Turmeric Ice Cream

One thing you should always, always have in your freezer is bananas. Because with this fruit-bowl staple, you can make the creamiest, sweetest, most decadent vegan ice-cream in under five minutes. Perfect for when you fancy a sweet treat without the guilt. This recipe has no added sugar, but you’d never tell from the taste of it, so it’s great for kids too!

What’s better than a delicious dessert? One that also nourishes your body and supports your health. Fresh turmeric contains curcumin, well known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties. This is a great superfood to add to your daily routine to keep your immune system in tip top shape.

Since curcumin is fat-soluble, your body absorbs it better if you eat it with fat. Good news, the other superfood in this easy ice cream recipe is coconut – a great source of healthy fats (medium chain triglycerides) like capric acid and lauric acid, which give you energy and help balance blood cholesterol levels.

There’s also a teeny tiny pinch of black pepper in this recipe – don’t’ worry, you won’t taste it at all, but the peperine it contains will boost your body’s ability to absorb curcumin. So you get all the benefits of turmeric in a sweet and creamy dessert that tastes like it shouldn’t be good for you.

Instructions
  1. Blend all the ingredients except the banana in a high-speed blender, or using a hand blender, until everything is combined.
  2. Add the frozen banana to the mixture and blend until you have a smooth and creamy ice-cream. You might need to stop and scrape the sides once or twice, especially if you’re using a blender with a large jug.
  3. Spoon into glasses or pretty cups and sprinkle with toppings of your choice. I chose goji berries, cashew nuts and desiccated coconut, but cacao nibs, bee pollen, toasted pumpkin seeds, flaked almonds and hazelnuts would all work well.
