I must be out of my mind(s). I’m having ice cold desserts in winter! Brrrr…am getting cold just writing about it. But what can I do when my creative genius decides to wholeheartedly disregard the weather outside?! Dost thou not follow thy imagination?
This is one of those weird desserts which don’t look anything like they taste. The sharp, cold, grey color of this ice cream is in such contrast with it’s texture and taste. It’s very smooth, creamy and rich, sweet and nutty in taste. I find it pairs very well with slices of fresh mandarins, which tickle the taste buds and cut through the creaminess of the ice cream.
- 400 ml coconut milk (fresh or 1 can store bought)
- 1/2 cup black sesame seeds (about 50 gr)
- 1 banana
- 1 TBSP sweetener of choice (raw honey / maple syrup)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- To serve: slices of fresh mandarin
- Add sesame seeds to blender and whiz them up until they turn to a fine flour consistency.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blitz until you get a creamy, smooth mix.
- Pour mix into an airtight container and pop it into the freezer. Leave it overnight or until frozen.
