Banana, coconut & rosemary nice-cream


  • 10 ripe medium bananas (2kg), cut into 1cm (½in) thick slices
  • 1 1/2 cups cups (375ml) canned coconut milk
  • 2 small sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • Place banana slices on two large baking-paper-lined oven trays. Cover and freeze overnight or until firm.
  • 2Stir coconut milk, rosemary and honey in a small saucepan over low-medium heat; bring to a simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove pan from the heat; stand, covered, for at least 20 minutes. Remove rosemary sprigs; discard 1 sprig. Pick leaves from remaining sprig; reserve.
  • 3Blend banana in a high-powered blender until very finely chopped. Add ⅔ cup (160ml) of the coconut milk mixture and the reserved rosemary leaves. Blend until mixture forms a soft-serve ice-cream texture, scraping down the side, if required.
  • 4Spoon banana mixture into glasses or bowls; drizzle with remaining coconut milk mixture. Serve.
