Summer. Heatwave. It’s-just-so-freaking-hot.

Whatever you would like to call this summer, apart from the fact that fucking climate change is real, it calls for sweetness that can cool you down.

And this quick and easy ice cream recipe fits the description perfectly. 

Prep the whole batch in the evening, pop into the freezer and the next day you have delicious homemade ice cream. Recipes like these call for extremely ripe bananas.

‘Cause when using bananas like that you can skip the extra sugar (maple syrup), the mixture will become sweet enough thanks to the bananas and coconut cream.

Add other or extra nuts if preferred.

Enjoy your sunny Thursday 😃☀️☀️!!
