Serves 2 adults + 2 little ones
2 ripe bananas, thinly sliced and frozen
a splash or two of cold water or your baby’s usual milk
optional flavours: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, unsweetened cacao, cinnamon or nut butter
Tip the frozen banana slices into your blender with the water/milk. Pulse, stop, look, give the blender cup a shake. Keep going, pulse by pulse, and after 45-60 seconds of whizzing, maybe less, you’ll be left with a creamy soft-scoop texture.
Serve immediately. If you’re adding flavours, throw them in at the start.
