Roasting strawberries concentrates their flavour and creates an amazing jam-like consistency to swirl into classic frozen banana “Nice Cream.” Crunchy, satisfying pistachios add the perfect pop to this easy treat. You can serve this right away for a more soft serve-like dessert or freeze it to scoop it later like more traditional ice cream.

Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Strawberries

800 g, hulled and sliced

Banana(s)

2 medium, thinly sliced and frozen

Honey

1 teaspoons, level

Pistachios

25 g, toasted and chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 230°C. Line a small baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Spread the strawberries on the sheet in an even layer, and roast until the berries have begun to release their juices and are lightly browned, stirring halfway through, about 25 minutes
  2. Cool and transfer the strawberries and their juices to two wide-bottomed, freezer-safe containers, spreading in a thin layer to avoid clumping. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the strawberries from the freezer and thaw at room temperature for 5 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and add the frozen banana slices and the honey. Pulse until smooth, stopping and stirring occasionally. Add the pistachios and pulse to combine. Enjoy immediately as “soft serve” or transfer the mixture to a loaf pan. Cover with plastic, pressing up against mixture, and freeze to harden and scoop later.
