Dairy Free & Vegan Chocolate and Banana Ice Cream

Not many of you know, but I'm lactose intolerant. That means eating foods with milk make me pretty ill so i have to stay away from the amazing yummy foods such as: milkshakes, cheese and also ICE CREAM. Before my operation, i was on a bit of a health kick when trying to get into shape for my Thailand holiday and started searching for alternatives to unhealthy foods. I came across this amaaazing idea on YouTube and i planned to try it out. However, this all went out the window, along with the healthy eating after my operation as my main goal switched to putting on weight! However now i'm home and healthy i decided to try this idea out. 

The ingredients (for 1 person) are:
- 2 medium bananas (the riper the better as they tend to taste sweeter)
- 1 and a half tablespoons of cocoa powder

What you will need: 
- a blender
- a bowl (duh)

The night before you want to make this, break up 2 bananas and pop them in a bag/box and into the freezer overnight.

The next day, take your bananas out of the freezer and pop them into the blender and blend them up to a nice thick, creamy consistancy. Note- this does take a while to do and you may have to keep turning the blender on/off to stir it up and break up banana.

Next, add 1 and a half tablespoons of cocoa powder. I use supernutrients which i bought from Holland and Barrett. Then mix in and you end up with an amazing, healthy and vegan friendly alternative to ice cream!

Hope this gives you some ideas for a guilty free, sweet fix!
