My new favourite food – and it’s not only easy, it’s also heart-healthy. You can whip this up with just one ingredient that you probably have in your kitchen right now. That mystery ingredient, of course, is banana! Frozen bananas turn creamy instead of crumbly in the blender, with a smooth and delectable texture.
Here’s a step-by-step recipe:
• Peel ripe bananas and cut into small chunks
• Freeze them
• Blend, blend, blend – scraping down the blender container if they stick. You can add a couple Tbsp of almond milk, plain yogurt, peanut butter or honey at this point if you like, but not really necessary
• Serve immediately (optional: sprinkle with a few sliced almonds or grated dark chocolate)
