Bananas + peanut butter = ice cream

  2. Put the frozen banana chunks into a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy. Toss in the peanut butter and puree further until well combined.

Nutella + eggs = flourless cake

Ingredients:

4 large eggs

250 g Nutella

Method:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 175℃ and prep a round eight-inch springform pan by greasing it and lining it with baking paper on the sides and bottom.
  2. Beat the eggs with either a hand mixer or stand mixer until stiff.
  3. Make sure the Nutella is soft before you add it to the beaten eggs. Else, you can microwave it for 15 to 20 seconds.
  4. First, add only ⅓ of the egg mixture and gently fold until well mixed. Then add another ⅓ of the whipped eggs and gently fold again. Finally, pour in the remaining mixture. It’s important to do this gently and in batches so that the whipped eggs do not lose air and fall flat.
  5. Pour this batter into springform pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  6. Completely cool before cutting and serving.

½ cup chocolate spread

1 ½ cups chocolate-flavored almond milk

  1. Add chocolate spread to a bowl.
  2. Add half a cup of milk and whisk until smooth.
  3. Slowly, whisk in the remaining milk.
  4. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, add sticks and freeze overnight.
