Easy do it Yourself Vegan Ice Cream!

Everybody misses animal products when they first turn vegan.  It sucks not having foods you used to love like steaks and cheeses and especially those decadent desserts!  Being vegan for a while, thinking about certain desserts is just gross!  However, there is one that I still love, as a kid I'd eat it all the time, and I have never recieved closure from leaving it behind when I turned vegan; I needed some ice cream!

 

Now, of course there are vegan ice creams made from soy, coconut, almonds, and rice, but they are definitely not cheap.  Also, they are far from healthy, but this is ice cream right?  I was at a loss for what to do, but over time I developed a healthy, easy-to-make, vegan, ice cream recipe.

You will need:

2 frozen bananas (per serving)

With this single ingredient you can make amazing soft-style icecream in a food processor.  The trick is to peel the bananas after theyre frozen, a knife definitely helps here.

Think plain bananas are too simple?  Spice it up!  I've made variations with cinnamon and nutmeg, cacao powder, adding nut butters, and even sneaking in some brown rice protein powder, and raisins.  The flavors are only limited by your imagination!  Try it out and comment how you like it and what your personal spin on the dish was.  Enjoy!

    I made banana icecream yesterday on top of some hot oatmeal, but I blended some frozen strawberries with it. Yum! Great post! :) --Clare

    Ooooh, great idea. I used to eat frozen bananas as a kid in place of ice pops but I'd never thought of doing this. I have to try it!

    You are right, it becomes difficult when you are used to a certain types of food and suddenly you decide to give it all up. I am following you now and would love to read more from you!

    there is a fabulous company called Peanut Butter & Co. that make several flavors of awesome vegan peanut butter like White Chocolate Wonderful, Maple Syrup, Cinnamon & Raisin and Double Dark Chocolate. These make the greatest combo with frozen bananas for ice cream. You really will not believe you are eating vegan.

    I've been doing this for quite a while now with my VitaMix. Another of my favorites is frozen peaches with a splash of coconut milk (or almond milk)...the VitaMix makes fantastic "ice cream"
