Fair Food Recipe – Coconut Milk & Roast Banana Ice Cream
4 large Fairtrade bananas
70g any Fairtrade sugar
400ml unsweetened, full-fat Fairtrade coconut milk
Pinch of salt
Fresh coconut shavings and/or lime zest to serve
1. Set oven to 180/gas mark 4. Roast bananas in skins for about 15mins until blackened and soft.
2. While still warm, slide banana flesh out of skins and mash with sugar in a bowl. Add salt and coconut milk. Puree mixture with a hand blender until completely smooth.
3. Churn in an ice cream machine or place the mixture in a lidded container in freezer. Give a good stir after 40 mins, then every 30 mins or so until the mixture is firm and smooth (may take up to 4 hours). For best results, use a large container which will speed up freezing. When ice cream is frozen, transfer it to a food processor and pulse for about 1min, until smooth. Scoop it all back into tub and return to freezer.
4. Before serving, allow to soften in fridge for 25 mins. Decorate with fresh coconut and lime zest or more banana.
Especially good after a hot Thai green curry!
