I’ve spoken many times before about sneaking goodness into my kids. At two, four and almost seven they usually need convincing to eat healthy food. It doesn’t get better than my healthiest chocolate ice cream, which have just a few incredible ingredients.
As far as I’m concerned, health food doesn’t get better than avocado. If being loaded with good fats, antioxidants and vitamins A, D, E and K wasn’t enough, they even help reduce your cholesterol levels. Unfortunately my children are fickle beyond belief, one day they love avo as much as I do, and the next, the very idea of eating it will repel them.
The idea of eating chocolate ice cream always appeals though, and this is my super easy, no churn, winning recipe!
Ingredients for 8 healthiest chocolate ice creams
1 perfectly ripe avocado
1 large or 2 small very ripe banana(s)
120ml (or 1/2c) coconut oil
25g (or 1/4c) cocoa powder
1 heaped tbsp cashew nut butter
1 egg yolk (leave out for vegan)
– put all your ingredients into your blender or food processor, and whizz up until you have thick mousse consistency (as per the third photo in the collage to the left). I use my fabulous Vitamix, as it makes light work of this type of job, and only takes seconds
– carefully decant into your lolly moulds
– freeze until solid, and enjoy when you feel the need for an ice cold guilt free treat!
