banana and cacao ice-cream

  • 500g bananas (approximately 4 large)
  • 1½ cups (420g) thick plain (natural) yoghurt, chilled
  • 1 cup (100g) raw cacao powder
  • ⅓ cup (80ml) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  1. Slice the bananas into even rounds and layer in a freeze-proof container between sheets of non-stick baking paper. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Place the banana, yoghurt, cacao, maple syrup and vanilla in a food processor and process for 3–5 minutes or until smooth. Spoon into a 1.5-litre-capacity metal container and freeze for 3–4 hours or until firm. Serves 4–6.

TIP:
+ To make this recipe dairy-free, you can omit the yoghurt. Just reduce the quantity of cacao powder to ¼ cup (25g).
