I might have a slight ice cream problem. My ice cream maker is constantly running and my small freezer is stuffed with popsicles and ice cream. If I continue like this I might need to buy me an ice cream truck to actually get rid of everything that I am producing right now. And I can´t even blame it on the weather, we´ve been having a lot of grey and rainy days lately. But who cares. Summer is a state of mind right?
I have a couple more ice cream recipes in the making but before I get to those, I wanted to introduce you to this awesome recipe. Banana and chocolate is a fool proof combination so you know that pretty much nothing can go wrong there. Add some fresh berries, Greek yoghurt and you have a delicious treat that is actually quite healthy too. It´s super easy to make, very creamy due to the fat of the yoghurt and banana and once you add the chocolate…mamma mia is all I can say!
Makes 8 popsicles:
300 g full fat Greek yoghurt
2 tbsp. of honey or maple syrup
About 4 – 5 fresh strawberries
100 g dark couverture
A couple of chopped walnuts (optional)
1) Puree 3 bananas with yoghurt, honey and juice of the lime. Slice the remaining banana and berries into small pieces. Place the fresh fruit into the popsicle molds, then add the banana-yoghurt mixture. Add popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
2) Melt the couverture. Take the popsicles out of the molds, place on a parchment paper and using a fork, drizzle chocolate on top. You can also dip the popsicles into the melted chocolate. Top with some chopped walnuts (optional) and return to the freezer.
