When the weather’s getting warmer and you want dessert, ice cream calls! But, like most sweet treats, many varieties are loaded with added sugar – however, not Minioti! Just like our superfood carob treats, they don’t compromise on taste and only use 100% natural ingredients. We’re passionate about providing healthy treats for all the family so it’s great to collaborate with the lovely Minioti again.

This recipe combines energy-boosting balls made with our Supertreats bars with Minioti vanilla ice cream and a delicious berry jam. A super-easy but beautiful treat to enjoy in the sunshine!

Get making!

  1. First make the berry jam: Place the berries in a pan with 2-3 tablespoons water and chosen sweetener. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the chia seeds and vanilla and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile make the energy balls: Place the drained dates, oats, almonds and coconut in a blender and whizz up until broken down. Gently melt the coconut oil and Supertreats then add to the blender and whizz up again until you have a slightly sticky flapjack mixture. Divide into about 18-20 and roll up into small balls and place in the fridge (you’ll have plenty leftover from the recipe so keep as a snack!).
  3. When ready to serve, remove the ice cream from the freezer 10-15 minutes before. Place a couple of scoopfuls in the bottom of a jar. Spoon over some of the berry jam, then add the rest of the ice cream. Top with a little more jam and add a few of the energy balls on top. Enjoy immediately!
