I liked eating ice-cream before I went raw and I like it even better now; I can eat so much more of it before belly rot sets in.
Typically I will use 3 or 4 bananas for a single portion (on grand eating days I will use 7 or 8). The quantities of the other ingredients are determined by whim and fancy. I consider ice-cream making an art and not a science so I don’t follow any precise ratios. But I usually I add about
- 5ml Honey
- 5ml Maple Syrup
- 8-10 Walnuts
- 1 very generous sprinkle of Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Paste
The vanilla paste is really important it neutralises the taste of banana which means the ice-cream can take on the flavour that you want.
The walnuts improve the texture and if you save some for later (never happened) it helps the ice-cream to freeze more evenly and avoids the icicles.
The honey and maple syrup are there ’cause I like them.
And I never add any type of fluid; therein lies the way to a smoothie!
