As the weather (finally) heated up in Melbourne, this quickly became a staple in my diet, and something I find myself happily eating all throughout the day. Who said you can't have dessert first?

If you know me, you'll know I cannot cook to save my life. I usually end up burning toast (maybe that's where my bircher muesli obsession started, I had to resort to cold food by default?). With that in mind, this is something even I can make, so it's definitely an easy one. This may even be the simplest recipe ever made... all you need is two ingredients - you can even do it with one!!

I'm talking about... raw banana berry ice cream!


  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries

  1. In preparation, break a bunch of bananas into 3 pieces (after removing the skin!) and freeze them in a zip-lock bag. Leave overnight or at least for a few hours - the colder the better.
  2. When all ingredients are frozen and ready, place them into the blender and pulse until you end up with a smooth, creamy texture. It should be soft, but you should be able to tip the blender container upside down without any falling out.
  3. Scoop into a big bowl, top with any desired fresh fruit, nuts or oats and enjoy!!
Too easy.

(It can also be made with pretty much any frozen fruit of your choosing, mango goes down a treat!)
