Chocolate Chilli Ice Cream – Dairy free, Gluten free, refined sugar-free
I’m not a big ice cream eater usually but given that it was 39 degrees C outside today I wanted to make something to cool me down. I adapted this from a Thai recipe. Now the Thais love their chillies and I must confess I too like a bit of spice in my food. Chilli and chocolate are always a great combination and fill you with serotonin to make you feel great and capsaicin to boost your endorphins.
Eating this ice cream gives a wonderful sensation from the coolness of the ice cream and then pow! you get hit by the zing from the green chilli!
Very easy to make and providing you have the frozen bananas ready, you can make it in a matter of minutes.
You can make it vegan by using maple syrup or date syrup instead of honey.
2 large ripe bananas chopped and frozen
1 small green chilli
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tsp raw honey
Combine all ingredients in the mixer and blend to a smooth consistency. Either eat immediately as a soft serve ice cream or put back in the freezer to harden up.
