Buffy always uses certified organic, local and fairly traded ingredients wherever possible.



1 apple
1/2 banana (frozen)
1/2 c water
1/4 c almonds or cashews (soaked)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp maca
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 medjoul date
pinch sea salt
1-2c ice (depending on desired consistency)







  • Blend all ingredients in a high speed processor / blender starting with 1 cup of ice.
  • Scrape down sides and lid and blend again on high for 1 minute.
  • Add a further cup of ice and blend again if you want a thicker more ice-slushy type texture, otherwise leave as is.
  • Top with more cinnamon and chopped almonds and serve immediately, or place in the freezer for an hour for more of an ice cream texture.






I used Pacific Rose apples in my version, which are a delicious sweet variety grown in NZ. Granny Smiths though also work well, and if I was making it in Australia I’d make a beeline for those delicious organic Pink Lady’s you can pick up at the markets.



“I love living an organic plant-based whole foods lifestyle,and truly believe it has the power to make such a difference to your health, as well as animals, our environment and communities. I’m passionate about sharing my story and knowledge, so you can benefit from these changes too. You can read more about me here.”– Buffy-Ellen
