This straightforward recipe is detailed below and we would love to hear your feedback at the foot of this article.
• Preparation Time: Around 4 – 5 hours
• Serves: 8
• 3 limes
• 2 tbsp Co-op Fairtrade dark brown sugar
• 300ml double cream
• 300ml low-fat natural yogurt
• 5 ripe Co-op Fairtrade bananas
• 2 tbsp unsweetened desiccated coconut (optional)
Finely grate the zest from the limes and set aside.
Juice 2 limes and stir juice into sugar until dissolved. Whip the cream until it holds its shape.
Add in yogurt. Peel 4 of the bananas and mash until you have a purée.
Fold the zest of 2 of the limes, juice, sugar and banana purée into the cream.
Spoon into a lidded container and freeze for 45 minutes, then stir the mixture, refreeze for 45 minutes, stir again and refreeze.
Continue this process for at least 4 hours. To serve, top with slices of banana, lime zest and, if using, the coconut (toasted).
