Berry Delicious Ice-cream with Macadamia Crunch.


It kind of goes without saying – if you’re feeling hot, make this and eat it quickly before it melts. If you’ve not yet been introduced to the world of banana ice cream you really must get with the program 😉 Your loved ones will have no idea it is not in actual fact ‘ice cream’ and your insides will love you for nourishing it. If you’re on social media, do please share your gorgeous creations, I’d love to see them. Tag it #theholisticingredient so I can easily find it and congratulate you for taking the plunge into this purpley jar of deliciousness.

Berry Delicious ‘Ice Cream’ with Macadamia Crunch

It helps to have a high powered blender to make this ‘ice cream’, you will simply need a little more patience without, that’s all. If you are without maqui berry, never fear, it’ll be very scrumptious with blueberries alone.
Serves 2 hot and hungry people.

2 bananas, frozen
1/2 cup blueberries, frozen
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1 heaped tablespoon maqui berry*

Throw the bananas, berries and maqui berry powder into your food processor or blender. Whizz it up to a smooth, ‘soft serve’ consistency, but be careful not to over process as the ‘ice cream’ may start to melt. You may need to stop and start and push the banana back down onto the blades but persist, you will get there! When it’s just done, throw in your macadamias and combine very quickly, but only so that they spread through the ice cream – you want the crunch so don’t keep blending.


* Maqui berry can be purchased online or via many health food stores.

    Looks amazing! Do you have a variation without banana? Crazy, I know, but I’m not a banana kind of girl!

    • Hi Domenica, I’m afraid this recipe is almost entirely banana, you’d need to find a completely different recipe with ingredients that suit you. ~ Sarah x

  3. Yummy! I love the idea of banana ice cream but the over ripe banana taste gets to me sometimes. Berrys are a perf add in.

    • You know, after tasting this ‘ice cream’ creation i wouldn’t even guess that banana was the main ingredient! Such a perfect balance of flavours. ~ Sarah.
