Here is a quick and easy ice cream recipe (see the raspberry version here)  which uses fruit as a base instead of cream, sugar and eggs. I hope you like it!

Recipe: Berry and Banana Soft Serve

Recipe info/allergen info: This is gluten-free and can be made dairy-free if using dairy-free milk.

Serves: Makes one serve.


  • 1/4-1/2 C. milk (any kind you like: full fat dairy, coconut milk etc)
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds
  • a handful or so of frozen mixed berries
  • a few slices of fresh banana

How to:

  1.  Blend milk and chia seeds.
  2. Add the berries and banana slices and blend until it becomes a soft serve texture/consistency. If you find it isn’t the texture you desire you can add more berries or banana; alternatively you can place the it in the freezer for about 10 minutes to harden a bit.
  3. Enjoy!
