  • 4 ripe bananas

  1. Peel, then cut the bananas into chunks and put into a freezer bag. Freeze for at least 2 hours or for up to 1 month until needed.

  2. Blend the frozen bananas, yogurt and syrup together in a food processor until nearly smooth, adding extra syrup if needed.

  3. Serve immediately or spoon into a freezerproof container, cover with a tight fitting lid and freeze until firm or until needed, for up to 1 month. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before scooping.

Cook’s tip

Delicious served with shards of peanut brittle – melt 50g caster sugar in a small pan over a medium heat until golden. Add some peanuts, then immediately tip onto a piece of baking parchment, leave to cool completely before breaking into pieces. Add warm chocolate sauce for an even more indulgent ice cream sundae.
