Indulge in this simple yet delectable vegan banana ice cream that is not only easy to make but also very healthy.
Skill Level: Easy
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 2 large ripe bananas, frozen
- ⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ teaspoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup sliced fresh strawberries
- Sprinkles (optional)
- Maraschino cherries (optional)
- Preparation: Start by prepping your food processor.
- Making the Ice Cream: Place the frozen bananas, almond milk, and vanilla extract into the food processor. Process these ingredients until the texture becomes smooth and creamy, similar to that of a soft serve ice cream.
- Adding Cocoa: Once your mixture has reached the desired consistency, add the unsweetened dark cocoa powder to it. Continue processing until the cocoa powder is well-incorporated into the ice cream.
- Serving: Once the ice cream is ready, scoop it into your preferred serving dishes.
- Toppings: Generously top your ice cream with chocolate chips and freshly sliced strawberries. For an added touch, sprinkle some colorful sprinkles and top it off with a cherry.
- This vegan banana ice cream is best enjoyed immediately after it’s made for the perfect creamy consistency. If you do store it in the freezer, ensure you let it sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving. This allows it to soften up for a better texture and flavor.
- Get creative with your toppings! While the recipe suggests chocolate chips, strawberries, sprinkles, and cherries, feel free to add nuts, other fruits, or any other vegan-friendly toppings of your choice.
Enjoy this delicious vegan treat that’s not only satisfying but also guilt-free!
