Welcome back Gaye and hello Spring!

A big warm welcome to Spring! We are looking forward to some warmer temperatures - however the days have already started drawing out and with the fresh mornings and evenings, this time of year is perfect for exercising.
Gaye's son Kit, has just returned from the World Underwater Hockey Champs in Spain competing for the NZ U19 team in which they WON, beating France 5-1 in the final. Huge congratulations to Kit and team on such an awesome achievement. We hope Gaye and Graeme enjoyed their wee ticky tour around Spain before the champs too.

This is a healthy after dinner (or training) snack - Enjoy!

Makes 2 servings, about 1 cup

1 large ripe banana
Cutting board
Airtight, freezer-safe container
Small food processor


  1. Start with ripe bananas: They should be sweet and soft.
  2. Peel the bananas and cut them into coins: It doesn't matter what shape or size the pieces are in, as long as they are chopped up into evenly sized and somewhat small pieces.
  3. Put the bananas in an airtight container: A freezer-safe glass bowl like this one is fine, or you can use a freezer bag.
  4. Freeze the banana pieces for at least 2 hours: Freeze for at least 2 hours, but ideally overnight.
  5. Blend the frozen banana pieces in a small food processor or powerful blender: Pulse the frozen banana pieces. We've found that a small food processor or chopper works best.
  6. Keep blending — the banana will look crumbly: At first the banana pieces will look crumbled or smashed. Scrape down the food processor.
  7. Keep blending — the banana will look gooey: Then it will look gooey, like banana mush. Scrape down the food processor.
  8. Keep blending — the banana will look like oatmeal: It will get smoother but still have chunks of banana in it. Scrape down the food processor.
  9. Watch the magic happen! Suddenly, as the last bits of banana smooth out, you'll see the mixture shift from blended banana to creamy, soft-serve ice cream texture. Blend for a few more seconds to aerate the ice cream. (If adding any mix-ins, like peanut butter or chocolate chips, this is the moment to do it.)
  10. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until solid: You can eat the ice cream immediately, but it will be quite soft. You can also transfer it back into the airtight container and freeze it until solid, like traditional ice cream

    Optional - Add Pics peanut butter or berries! yum!!!
Nige is wanting some feedback on the idea of having a 6 week challenge starting on Monday 12th October (Term 4) to help inspire, motivate and challenge you all before the mad christmas/new year rush takes over.  Some prizes may be up for grabs for these achievements; 
  • Biggest physique change (body weight, measurements, before/after photos are all optional and won't be public)
  • Most improved fitness (some fitness tests will be included within some boot camp sessions to test you all, start and end)
  • Total exercise/activity sessions completed (everything that gets you sweating counts)
  • The most boot camp sessions attended
Points would be awarded for all exercise sessions completed by you over the 6 weeks.  Various bonus points would be available for attending boot camp sessions, posting pics on our Facebook page of your exercise selfies or locations and even more points if done with families/friends and events competed in would be worth a bit too.  Could be a BIG overall prize for someone who really excels.

If you or you know anyone self employed or with a business willing to donate or sponsor a small prize towards this, then please put them onto Nige for an incentive.  We will end with a end of year Boot Camp Nelson, christmas bash get together and recognise peoples achievements.
