You can top this green tea banana ice cream with your favourite fruits, sauces, or nuts. Cherie topped hers with buckinis and her own carob sauce. Carob is substitute ingredient for cacao powder.
Both cacao and carob are low in calories but cacao has a more chocolaty taste than carob. Carob however does not have caffeine, which makes it a great alternative for anyone with high blood pressure.
Buckini is activated buckwheat, where the seed is soaked evenly in water. It has various health benefits, such as reducing risk of high cholesterol and blood pressure, regulating blood sugar, and maintaining healthy weight.
