Default Banana Icecream?

I'm sorry if this is already down on this thread. I've searched, but can't find it. However, I am new so please make allowances.

Peel and finely chop a banana(s).
Freeze.
Blitz in processor, adding a bit of skimmed/semi skimmed milk until the consistency of soft ice cream.
Tip

Try and freeze the chopped bananas spread out on a plate or something because I found out the hard way, that if you blitz in big lumps, it burns out the processor motor

Made the pumpkin and parsnip cassoulet on the weekend, have taken it to work in a flask today and am currently eating it - delicious! Used butternut squash instead of pumpkin, also omitted the sugar as it's quite sweet anyway. Also I halved the recipe but it still makes loads! Highly recommended!!

Default Chickpea Raita

This is a really simple and delicious recipe and amended from an unhealthier version I use at home during festivals.

(serves 2)
1 can cooked chickpeas
1 tomato (deseeded and chopped)
1/2 white onion (chopped)
1/4 cucumber (sliced and halved or quartered)
A pinch of garam masala
300ml low fat yoghurt

This is super and easy and fast to prepare.

1) Rinse and drain the chickpeas and leave to the side.

2) Wash and cut the tomato, onion and cucumber.

3) Pour yoghurt into a bowl or container and add the the chickpeas, tomato, onion and cucumber. Stir.

4) Garnish with a few pinches of garam masala.

Tips:

If you plan to use it for lunch over a few days or not eat it right away, it lasts better if you core the cucumber as that can end up getting squishy.

A lot of chickpeas are packaged in brine so it is best to rinse thoroughly.

Other options:

You can use different vegetables to your taste and change it up a bit so it doesn't get boring. I find I enjoy it best when there is a mix of soft and crunchy food in the mix. Other variations I use are

1 small potato (peeled, diced and boiled)
1/2 green pepper (chopped)
Coriander, mint or other leaves to garnish
Chili powder, curry powder, etc instead of garam masala to add flavour
Small pakoras (best handmade and enjoyed as a treat, this lowers the nutritional value of it because these are fried and not particularly healthy - I can add the recipe for these is requested but did not include as it will no longer be healthy or quick)
