Two Vegan “Banana” Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1 Frozen banana per person
  • 1/2 Cap-ful Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 Cup Soy or Almond milk (approximately)
  • 3-4 Raw walnuts per serving (optional)
  •  
    Optional additions:

  • Maple Extract
  • Handful of nuts (Walnuts, Almonds or Hazelnuts work great)
  • Cinnamon
  • Lemon Extract or shavings
  • Raisins soaked in warm water with Rum extract (for Rum raisin flavor)
  • Ginger
  • Strawberry extract or a few frozen strawberries
  • 1 tsp Instant Coffee OR 2 tsp Barley coffee alternative
  • Powdered Chai seasonings and Honey
  • Powdered Carob or chocolate
  • Mint or mint extract

 

Preparation:
Break pre-frozen peeled banana into chunks and put in food processor. Add seasonings desired except those you want as chunks. Pulse while adding a drizzle of soy/almond milk until the mixture creates a nice ball of ice cream that rolls around on the blades. Then add your nuts or chocolate chunks and pulse until it reaches a desired texture. This is a great dessert all year round and is as healthy and low cal as ice cream can get!

This delicious and classic 2VC dessert is vegan/vegetarian, gluten free, free of added sugar, dairy free and egg free. Enjoy in good health!
Tips:
You can also do this with roasted pear, pineapple, mango, berries, or whatever you want if you freeze them in advance and mix with at least half a banana per serving. The banana helps to make the puree creamy. MMMM!
