Banana, speculaas & cinnamon frozen yogurt 


Creamy banana and cinnamon no churn frozen yogurt with a crunchy swirl of crushed spiced speculaas biscuitsThere's something about cinnamon and spice that is just perfect for autumn desserts. 

Speculaas (or speculoos biscuits as we know them here in France) originate in the Netherlands and Belgium. Speculaas spice is traditionally a mix of cinnamonnutmegclovesgingercardamom and white pepper, although there are many regional and family blend variations. 

If you can't find speculaas biscuits, crushed ginger biscuits (ginger snaps/ginger nuts) would be a good alternative.

This recipe is also a delicious way of using up over ripe bananas and avoiding food waste. 


recipe by Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin
preparation time: 15 minutes & freezing times

makes about 500ml 

ingredients: 

350g very ripe/over ripe bananas
4 tbsp Greek yogurt/thick plain natural yogurt 
3 tbsp creme fraiche
75g speculaas biscuits 
2 tsp ground cinnamon 

to serve: 
crushed speculaas biscuits 

method: 

Peel the bananas and cut into 1-2 inch slices and freeze. 


Crush the speculaas biscuits - either with a rolling pin or give them a quick whizz in a food processor. You don't want a really fine powder, a few chunky bits of biscuit are fine and add to the texture. 

Add the frozen banana slices, yogurt, creme fraiche and ground cinnamon to a food processor and mix until smooth. 

Stir in the crushed biscuits then spoon into a lidded, freezer proof container and freeze overnight. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving to allow the frozen yogurt to soften slightly. Sprinkle a few extra crushed speculaas biscuits on top to serve if you would like a bit more crunch.
