Banana, peanut butter and maple soft serve (no refined carbohydrates)

Banana peanut butter maple soft serveI have been experimenting with flavour extracts recently. I am particularly fond of the maple extract as it allows me to add the maple flavour without the sugar and calories of maple syrup. The combination of banana, peanut butter and maple in this soft serve was absolutely delicious and far healthier than any store bough soft serve. It is sweetened with the bananas and stevia and has a subtle nutty taste. This soft serve is also very easy to prepare. You just need to freeze your ingredients in advance.

Makes 2 serves

Ingredients

2 bananas, peeled and frozen in chunks

2 heaped tablespoons of peanut butter

1 ½ teaspoons maple extract

Method

  • Add the chunks of frozen banana to the food processor and process until it is finely chopped.
  • Remove the frozen coconut milk from the small containers by running hot water over the bottom of the container. Chop the frozen coconut milk into chunks using a sharp knife.
  • Gradually add the chunks of frozen coconut milk to the food processor and process until a smooth soft serve forms (5 – 10 minutes). During the processing add in the peanut butter, maple extract and stevia.
  • Divide the soft serve into two bowls and serve immediately or freeze for an additional 30 minutes for a firmer texture.
