Avocado, banana and Nutella ice lollies

image

This is an incredibly easy healthier treat for those of us with a sweet tooth.  You’ll need just three simple ingredients:

image

Mash a couple of bananas until pretty smooth.

image

Put in a nutribullet cup (a regular blender will work fine), top with half a mashed avocado and three tablespoons of Nutella. For those of you who would prefer a more natural alternative to Nutella you could try adding coconut oil and manuka honey chocolate instead, although I’ve yet to try it.

image

Blitz until smooth and well combined.

image

Pour into moulds and leave to set in the freezer.

image

Run the mould under a little warm water to release the lolly and enjoy.

Wholly Guacamole!

image

I’m a fan of good guacamole. Not the processed, sloppy, remnants of the flu like guacamole you find at the supermarkets, but the fresh, zingy, pack-a-taste-punch stuff.  Completely, totally, wholly guacamole.

For this recipe you’ll need:
2 ripe avocados
3 spring onions
2 cloves garlic
A small bunch of coriander
A handful of ripe baby plum tomatoes
A lime or two (I didn’t have any limes in so used lemons instead which are fine but I prefer limes for this really)
Half to a whole jalapeño chilli.
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

image

Chop up the the onions, coriander, tomatoes, chilli and garlic very finely.

image

Chop up the avocados until they’re slightly mashed but chunky at the same time, then add in the chopped ingredients and mix through. Season with salt and pepper and squeeze in the juice from one of the limes (or lemons). Give it a taste. Add more lime juice/seasoning as needed. Put the avocado stones back into the guacamole to prevent it discolouring, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Delicious!
