Banana and mango nice cream – Hélène Bataille, Bisou les Madeleines

Serves 4

You can combine any of your favourite fruits to make the perfect nice cream : raspberries, strawberries, melon, mango, cacao…  And after mixing : chocolate chunks, desiccated coconut, caramel…

You can also replace the sparkling water with coconut milk, or even white or rosé wine! The banana chunks helps making the dessert creamy and gives consistency. If you don’t like it, you may use less liquid in your mix.


2 bananas
1 mango
2 tbsp agave syrup
250 ml sparkling water
1/2 lime juice
6-8 ice cubes
Some fresh fruit chunks or mint leaves for decoration.


1. To prepare in advance
Peel, cut and freeze the fruits.
2. Mixing
Pour the frozen fruits, agave syrup, sparkling water, lime juice and ice cubes in a blender, and mix until smooth and creamy. If your mix is really hard, you might need to add a small amount of liquid to the jug to help things along.
3. Service
Serve the Nice Creams in bowls, cups or glasses. Scatter some fresh fruit chunks or mint leaves for decoration.

Serve immediately, along with fresh Bisou les madeleines (lemon zest or coconut/lime).
4. Storage
If you have some mixed preparation leftover, immediately store it in an ice cream tray and bring back to freezer.
