Less is More

Did you know that the ice cream was invented by the chinese? It’s strange because China is the last country I would associate with ice cream …

Even if it’s almost autumn , after a day of work many people long for a fresh ice cream.Raw Mango Ice Cream

For me this summer was low in ingredients when it comes to ice cream. If last year, my favourite dessert contained a whole list of ingredients: water, sugar, vegetable fat, dried milk, low fat powdered milk, glucose syrup, dextrose, emulsifiers, stabilizers, salt,  butter fragrance, caroten colorant etc, this year my favourite ice cream has only 2 ingredients: mango and bananas. But does the quality get better when more ingredients are used?

Recipe:

2 bananas

1 mango

Cut both fruits and keep them in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Afterwards mix them with a blender and put them back again in the freezer for 2 hours. You get a lovely, creamy and healthy ice cream !

The taste is almost the same as an ice cream from the shop, the difference consists in the pleasure of making your own dessert and – above all – you can be sure of eating an ice cream made of healthy and carefully chosen ingredients!

Mango Banana Ice Cream

[Stiati ca inghetata a fost inventata de chinezi ? E ciudat ca atunci cand ma gandesc la inghetata, China e ultimul lucru cu care o asociez, mereu in topul listei situandu se senzatia de racoare si prospetime pe care ti o aduce acest deliciu ce parca te obliga sa l savurezi cu pasi inceti, ca altfel, isi pierde din savoare…

Chiar daca e sfarsit de vara si caldurile nu mai par sa fie atat de sufocante, dupa o zi de munca, cati dintre noi nu cauta inca refugiu in delectarea cu o inghetata ? Pentru mine vara aceasta a fost mai saraca…in ingredientele continute de o inghetata. Daca anul trecut, desertul meu preferat continea o intreaga lista : apa, zahar, grasime vegetala, lapte praf integral, lapte praf degresat, sirop de glucoza, dextroza, emulsificatori, stabilizatori, sare, aroma de unt, colorant caroten natural etc,  anul acesta inghetata mea preferata contine doar 2 ingrediente: mango si banane. Dar oare calitatea, e direct sau invers proportionala cu numarul de ingrediente ?

Reteta:

2 banane

1 mango

Se taie felii ambele fructe si se pun la congelator pentru cateva ore( cel putin 3 ore). Se scot de la congelator si se amesteca intr un blender, dupa care se pun din nou la congelator pentru 2 ore, dupa care se poate servi: rece, cremoasa, sanatoasa…

Cert e ca gustul e (poate) aproape acelasi, diferenta consta in placerea de a-ti gati propriul rasfat, dar mai ales, de a fi sigur ca ceea ce mananci e rezultatul unei compozitii sanatoase si atent alese.

  1. More ice cream!🙂 I have often made ice cream with frozen banana, but almost every time it has also contained yogurt or coconut milk. Mango sounds so lovely! I bought some organic Finnish hemp seeds yesterday so it will be a pleasure to make your other ice creme.

    We (hubby and me) tried to read this text without google translator and we really understood a lot.

  2. This sounds like really nice and health recipe, I have to try it myself! Thanks for Romanian post. I will visit Bucharest in October so that this is good way to practice a little🙂

  3. I would never have guessed that ice cream originated in China! This looks so good Nat, I’ve seen ‘ice cream’ made from just bananas but the added mango is such a good idea!
