Who doesn’t love ice-cream? It is the perfect treat for a hot summer day! When I began transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, I had a tough time giving up dairy because I love ice-cream. Haagen Dazs’ Dulce de Leche will forever have a very special place in my heart.
Who says vegan is boring? Enjoy this easy and amazing banana ice-cream recipe. It is delicious and full of nutrients like iron, fiber and vitamin B1!
But change is good and health is wealth, so after a little trial and error I’ve created a ice-cream recipe that I love and it is vegan!
For this recipe you will need at least 4 frozen bananas.
You will also need 1/4 of a cup of your favorite base. I prefer coconut milk, but you can use almond, hemp milk or any other dairy free option you prefer.
You will also need 1 tbsp of flaxseeds. Flaxseed a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3. They are pretty awesome!
While not required you can also add raw cacao powder which is a source of antioxidants and iron!
Vegan Ice Cream
- 4 frozen bananas
- 1/4 cup of almond milk (or coconut milk)
- 1 tsp of organic cocoa powder ((optional))
- 1 tsp shredded coconut ((optional))
Using a food processor (I use my ninja), mix your bananas, milk, and flaxseeds until the texture is smooth. This should take less than 4 minutes.
Then add your coconut shreds and cocoa powder on top of your ice cream for flavor.
Note: You can mix the cocoa with the bananas in the food processor!
