Not-So-Chunky-Munky

Antonia MagorComment

I love chunky monkey, it's the best flavour of ice cream in my humble opinion, so I wanted to try and create a slightly healthier version. The salted almonds really give the ice cream an extra kick and flavour depth, so I would definitely make the little extra effort to make them.

Prep Time 10minutes, Total Time 2 1/2 hours

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 118ml almond milk
  • 50grams cacao nibs 

Salted Almonds

  • 25grams flaked almonds
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • a large pinch of sea salt

Method:

  • Slice the bananas into discs and place in the freezer for 2 hours or until you need them.
  • Combine the frozen banana pieces and almond milk in the food processor and blitz until smooth, don't worry if the frozen banana takes a few minutes to thaw and break down. 
  • Fold in the cacao nibs and enjoy immediately. 

Salted Almonds

  • In a small non-stick pan toast the flaked almonds for a few minutes, take off the heat and add the maple syrup and sea salt. 
  • Stir throughly so all the almonds are coated. 
  • Allow to cook before sprinkling over the ice cream.
