Who says you have to use dairy products or eggs to make a delicious "ice cream"? Or sugar? This completely vegan recipe is super easy and fast to make as well as healthy and oh so yummy. The ice cream recipe doesn't call for much of the non-dairy milks. Play around with it and you will soon learn just how much non-dairy milk you need. As an added plus, you can thin the recipe down a bit and make a delicious all-vegan "shake." Use the accompanying recipe for classic sweet almond milk for a super healthy version of this recipe. Enjoy!
Best ever all-vegan 'ice cream'
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
One cup of frozen fruit, such as strawberries, peaches or blueberries
One medium to large sliced and frozen banana
Raw, organic honey or vegan maple syrup to taste
Coconut, almond or rice milk to preferred consistency
Slice your bananas and place in a baggy before freezing. If your fruit choice is peaches or a similar fruit, slice and freeze the same as the bananas. Use a food processor to blend the fruits and make the mixture creamy. If the fruit does not blend well at first, add 1/4 cup of the non-dairy milk at the beginning. If need be, the mix can be chilled for several minutes to harden. For easier mixing, blend the honey or maple syrup with your non-dairy milk prior to adding it in with the other ingredients. Always freeze any left over peaches or bananas.
For a chunkier version, cut some of the frozen fruit in bits and add after you have blended the ice cream. You can also add healthy almonds, pecans or walnuts for a nutty version. For a healthy and crunchy version, add wheat germ on the top when you put the ice cream in bowls.
