Creamy banana roll

This ice cream roll is rich with the sweet taste of bananas.

* Serves 8

  • 6 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 6 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • flakes or curls of chocolate, to decorate
  • 1/2 recipe chocolate sauce

Coconut ice with lime

Coconut milk makes a great base for an ice cream, but you can enrich it by using the thicker (higher fat content, of course!) coconut cream. The coconut flavor is great with the sharp tang of limes.

* Makes 3 cups

  • 2 cups coconut milk, chilled
  • finely grated zest and juice of 3 limes
  • 4 tbsp. honey, or to taste
  • dried coconut, toasted, to decorate
