• you can add any nuts like almonds, hazelnut,

• to make the icecream richer & creamier you can add 1/2 -1/3 cup of whole milk or coconut mil or Almond milk depending on your preference of dietary choice & Allergies

•My recipe Adapts well to any choice of fruits & flavour preference - like -

strawberry, vanilla , pistachio, Mint , Caramel sauce ( though caramel can get sweet as bananas are sweet already so do take note.

An Interesting note from the frequently asked questions found on the net on ‘Cacao ‘ from my research!

Cacao is the purest form of chocolate. It's one of the highest sources of antioxidants in foods and has a high amount of flavonoids. Cacao is higher in protein, fibre, magnesium and iron. Cocoa powder without added sugar is still high in nutrition and is a more affordable option.
