To make:

Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl or the blender jug. I tend to pour the coconut milk in last over the powder to avoid powder backsplash! Blend. It may be a little challenging to start with, especially when using a hand blender, but after about 30 seconds the bananas start to mush and you see the ice cream consistency emerging. Give it a good old blend. Some recipes suggest freezing again once blended, but

Eat. Enjoy.  Feel good about yourself!
