Who doesn’t love “ice cream”, especially when it’s this tasty and healthy!  Cherries are chock-full of antioxidants and cancer preventing compounds, and are anti-inflammatory, support healthy sleep (they contain melatonin ), can lower your risk of stroke and help maintain cognitive function and reduce your likelihood of developing dementia.  And bananas contain a bunch of vitamins and minerals that boost your mood, provide energy, reduce PMS, symptoms, lower blood sugar and protect against heart disease, protect again Type 2 diabetes, aid digestion and much more…

Do you need any more reason to whip up this brightly coloured wonder?
