The Best Recipe Yet: Vegan Ice Cream!

20 Jul

This is my FAVORITE recipe so far! It was SO fun and SO easy and SO good! I stalk Chocolate Covered Katie‘s Blog alllll the time and always want to make her desserts but for most of them you need a food processor. And the closest thing to a food processor we have is a Magic Bullet- not the same. So, yesterday when I saw this recipe I told Corey to pick up a food processor- it’s about time. I’ve been missing out on way too much! So, last night Corey went out and I stayed in, made ice cream and watched Housewives re-runs!

This is all you have to do!

Chocolate Fudge Soft Serve

(Serves 2-3)

  • 3 medium bananas (the riper the better) (300g) (see nutrition link below, for substitutions) (the less ripe, the less banana taste)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (15g)
  • optional: sweetener (depending on your taste buds and ripeness of the bananas)
  • optional: 3-5 tbsp peanut butter or another nut butter of choice

Ahead of time: peel and slice the over-ripe bananas into chunks. Freeze in a Ziploc-type bag, then combine all ingredients in a Vita-Mix, food processor, or blender. (If not using a Vita-Mix, add 2-3 tsp milk of choice so it’ll blend more smoothly. You might also have to thaw the frozen bananas if your freezer is super-powerful.) If you want the look of ice cream, use an ice-cream scoop to serve! (If you scoop it all into a container and freeze about 10-15 minutes, the texture will also become a bit firmer like ice cream, as opposed to soft serve.) Don’t try to half the recipe unless you have a tiny food processor, as it won’t blend as smoothly.

I used less ripe bananas because I don’t LOVE bananas and didn’t want an overpowering banana taste. I used regular peanut butter and blue agave sweetener. And the food processor we got is very tiny, so I kind of did my own thing when it came to the instructions….
