Did you see our “5 with…” interview with Buffy? You can read it here.
Buffy always uses certified organic, local and fairly traded ingredients wherever possible.
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.
