A cooling dollop of banana bread nice cream on top of a coconut sugar baked apple is an insanely good combo. This banana bread nice cream is a nod to all the delicious flavours you get within a great banana bread and it just goes so well with the baked apples.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the banana bread nice cream

Quantity Ingredient
3 large ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
60g cashews, soaked for 4–6 hours, then drained
1 1/2 tablespoons rum
1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A pinch salt
60g cacao butter
60g chopped roasted walnuts

For the baked apples

Quantity Ingredient
4 green apples
4 tablespoons coconut sugar
4 tablespoons maple syrup
4 tablespoons vegan butter or coconut oil
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Method

  1. To make the nice cream, blitz the bananas and cashews in a food processor or blender until completely smooth, scraping down the sides every 30 seconds, if necessary. Add the rum, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt and cacao butter, and blend again to incorporate. Spoon the mixture into a freezer-proof container and stir through the chopped walnuts. Freeze for 2–3 hours to firm up. Allow to thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
  2. To make the baked apples, preheat the oven to 170°C. Scoop out the core from the top of the apples, leaving a well. Do not cut all the way through. Stuff each apple with 1 tablespoon coconut sugar and maple syrup. Place a small piece of butter or coconut oil on top, then place in a shallow baking dish and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
  3. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until the sugar begins to caramelise and the apples are tender when you pierce them with a knife. You want them lovely and soft but not collapsing and mushy. Serve each baked apple immedietely with a scoop of the banana bread nice cream.
