Kakadu Plum and Blueberry Ice Cream


Lee’s Kakadu Plum & Blueberry Ice Cream

Credit: Lee Holmes

I’m proud to see the elevation of a superfood from our own back door rising to take centre stage. Kakadu plum, also known as gubinge, is a native fruit from The Kimberley in Western Australia that has been enjoyed by Indigenous Australians for thousands of years. It’s one of the highest real-food sources of vitamin C known to man and has an astringent, citrusy flavour. Enjoy the benefits of this Aussie fruit in a refreshing fruity ice-cream paired with blueberries.

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen ripe bananas
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

  1. Whizz bananas, blueberries, coconut milk, Kakadu plum powder and vanilla in food processor until creamy. Add more coconut milk if needed to get a smooth consistency.
