My no churn CBD banoffee ice cream is the ultimative Sunday afternoon chill superfood.
CBD oil can relieve anxiety and pain and improve sleep quality, and peanut butter, bananas and dates contain trypthophan, which our body turns into serotonin – our happy hormone! More on that in a moment.
Banoffee is a combined flavour of banana and toffee, originating in England. You have probably heard of banoffee pie. It also works very well as an ice cream flavour, so I have combined a coconut milk nice cream with date caramel, added some CBD oil for the ultimate relaxing treat. If you don’t like the taste of CBD oil, but want to enjoy the benefits, this delicious ice cream is the perfect solution.
This recipe makes a creamy soft serve that you can enjoy right away. If you want a firmer, scoopable ice cream, you just put it into the freezer for another 2-3 hours. When the CBD banoffee ice cream has been in the freezer for a long time, you want to let it sit on the counter for half an hour before serving.
What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol is made from hemp, but other than THC it is not psychoactive. There are no severe side-effects and it’s not addictive.
If you’re in Germany, you can get CBD oil from Berlin based company Hanfgeflüster. It is sustainably produced and legal, and they plant a tree for each ordered product.
You’ll get a 20% discount with my code flycbd if you order above 50 euro, and 15% discount if you order for less than that.
Some say that CBD oil should not be frozen, but according to Hanfgeflüster that is not a problem.
Which other ingredients make the CBD Banoffee ice cream a superfood?
- coconut milk
Coconut milk contains many B-Vitamins and minerals, and also lots of lauric acid which fights off viruses, bacteria and fungi. Medium chain triglycerides support the liver and help build muscle. Since I heard that in Thailand, monkeys are forced to harvest the coconuts, I only buy coconut milk from other countries.
Bananas are very rich in fibre, antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and folic acid and they contain all eight important amino acids. The resistant starch makes our good gut bacteria happy. The most important one for our CBD banoffee ice cream ist tryptophan, which becomes serotonin. You always want to use really ripe bananas for nice cream, they are easier to process and add more sweetness.
- peanut butter
Peanut butter comes along with fibre, protein, zinc, potassium, magnesium and lots of vitamin D. And again, tryptophan makes you feel good. I prefer peanut butter with salt and sugar (I know …). If you’re using 100% peanut butter (much better for you obviously) you might want to add a little bit of salt to the date caramel, it just tastes so much better.
Dates have fibre, antioxidants, phosphorus and calcium, a broad range of vitamins and just like bananas and peanut they contain the amino acid tryptophan. The best dates to make the date caramel are fresh juicy medjoul dates. If you’re using dried ones, you might want to soak them in the 80 ml / 1/3 cup of water for about an hour before pureeing. That makes it much easier.
CBD BANOFFEE ICE CREAM
- 400 ml coconut milk 13,5 oz
- 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
- 2 bananas
- 50 g medjoul dates 2-3
- 80 ml water 1 cup
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- CBD oil*
- little salty pretzels for garnishing
- Combine coconut milk and coconut sugar and fill into an ice cube mold. Then freeze for 5 hours.
- Chop up the bananas and freeze them as well.
- After about 5 hours puree the dates with water and peanut butter. I use my stick blender for that.
- Now add the CBD oil to the date caramel and stir well. I use about 20 drops for 4 portions.
- Put the coconut cubes and banana pieces into a blender and blend into a creamy soft serve. Don't overblend or it will get too warm.
- Now fill the soft serve into a big container or in several small ones, stir in the date caramel and add the little pretzels.
