This healthy summer ice-cream is a delicious treat that can be made within 5 minutes. It is low FODMAP, refined sugar, lactose and gluten free.

You can eat it out of a bowl, freeze in icy pole moulds or top with your favourite toppings.

This ice-cream not only tastes good but has fantastic health benefits.

Strawberries and bananas are considered brain food as they are high in potassium, which is beneficial for;
  • healthy brain development and maintenance
  • improving memory and recall.

  • Potassium is also an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy blood pressure and heart function.

    Strawberries and bananas are low GI which are slowly digested, absorbed, metabolised and will not cause sugar spikes.

    They are also natural sweeteners which means that you do not need to add any sugar to make it taste great.

    Enjoy!
