Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of posts, it’s that standardized test time of the year again and I’ve been so tired coming home to do anything. But last week I was finally able to make my first ever banana ice cream, and it was so so so so good! I was inspired by all those vegan instagram accounts out there, I mean WOW. Talk about inspiring photographs of raw food! So in the theme of all this, I dedicate the trending hasthag #nourishyourself and I challenge all of you guys to think about what that means to you while I show you how to make this utterly delicious treat.
Anyways, banana ice cream or commonly referred to as “nicecream” and “guilt-free ice cream” is a 100% raw, vegan, and healthy alternative to ice cream. It’s so simple and fun to make I think everyone should do it. 😀 I’ll be showing you guys two flavors, plain banana and strawberry, but what I did was layer them all together in a mason jar. You can really get creative with this and add in your own preferred fruits and make your favorite colors. Ready?
- 9-12 bananas ,frozen
- 2-4 cups of strawberries, frozen
- a dash of soy milk or almond milk ( optional, this is just if your ingredients have a hard time blending)
- A blender or food processor. ( I recommend a Vitamix or any powerful blender.)
Because I have a old and crappy blender, I had to add a dash of soy milk for it to blend properly. If your blender is like mine and isn’t that powerful, it will take some time, patience, and a lot of poking with a spoon. But in the end, you want to reach this creamy consistency.
I’m just going to plop them into the blender along with my remaining banana chunks.
And there you have it! A perfect combination of sweet, creamy, tangy, all in a little jar that you can pop in the freezer and eat whenever you want or just finish it all off! The best thing about this is that it’s made completely out of fruit, so it’s 100% “guilt free,” natural, and healthy. I’d love to experiment with other fruits as well! I’ve seen blackberry, raspberry, and mango, and they all look so good. If you guys try, I’d love to see your creations!
