Banana Berry Blast

A new dessert creation from our CME Manager Sarah, this creamy frozen fruit treat only has four main ingredients, and uses low-glycemic berries and coconut nectar to add a little sweetness.

Yield: 2 servings

  • 2 frozen bananas (cut into 1-inch chunks before freezing)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar (you can also use honey, agave, date syrup, maple syrup, a liquid artificial sweetener like stevia, or omit a sweetener altogether)
  • 12 blackberries
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Blend bananas, berries, coconut nectar, and almond milk in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to a container and freeze until firm. Scoop a serving and sprinkle with coconut flakes.

  1. This sounds delicious. Just wondering how it can be low glycemic when you’re using two bananas.
    I want to believe this is possible!!

      Hi Maureen, Yes you are right, as a whole it’s not low glycemic – just the blackberries and the coconut nectar are low-glycemic. Our apologies, and thank you for the clarification!
