Ice cream is absolutely delicious but not exactly the healthiest of snacks. Luckily, there are some healthier alternatives. Although, I can’t take credit for this recipe because a friend of mine who happens to be a vegan told me about this (thanks Madeline).
Let’s get to the recipe!
The first step is to freeze the banana. I usually cut it into small pieces so it will work well in the food processor. You could always go primal and break it up with your hands, but I elected for a knife today. (Never mind mind that I don’t know what year it is)
Once you have frozen the banana you can put in your food processor. If you don’t have one a blender will probably work as well.
Now you get to add your ingredients! Vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg! Feel free to add as much or as little as you like.
I used 1/2 tsp of vanilla and several dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Now, it’s time to blend into that creamy vegan soft serve!
Now spoon out that goodness!
Add the nuts or whatever topping you prefer!
Now you get to enjoy a healthy, cool, refreshing snack that leaves you with no guilt!
There are plenty of ways to change this up. You can add a little milk (almond or coconut are delicious) when you blend it up to add more creaminess. You can also add in frozen blueberries, or my personal favorite, raspberries.
This is the base of the banana ice cream, don’t be afraid to experiment and add ingredients. You are human after all, we like to try new things from time to time.
Until next time!
