Vegan Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

2

I try to consume very little to no dairy…mainly just because I think other alternatives are healthier and taste better (almond milk…mmmm!!). AND it gives me the opportunity to experiment with new flavors, ingredients, and ideas which I LOVE 🙂

I was craving something sweet yesterday and I came up with this brilliant idea for “ice cream”. I know you will love it as much as we did and kids would go crazy over it!!!! Oh…did I mention it is healthy?? How about that it took me less than a minute to make?? Well both are true and I can’t wait to try more varieties!!

Last fact: It is raw in addition to vegan 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 3-4 dates (adjust for sweetness of your liking)
  • OR
  • 2-3 Tbs honey (again, adjust for sweetness of your liking)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6-8 frozen strawberries
  • 2 small or 1 large frozen banana**

Put almonds, water, ice, dates (or honey), and vanilla in a high-powered blender (I have and recommend a Nutribullet) and whirl away until it appears white and frothy. Add in strawberries and banana and blend again until all incorporated well 🙂

You can eat it right away or place it in the freezer for 15 minutes if you want a harder ice cream.

**Frozen banana tip/warning: make sure you peel them before you freeze them!!!!! Otherwise you are never getting that peel off!!! Haha I always keep a ziploc of frozen bananas because A. they keep longer and B. its a great addition to any smoothie or shake!

Eat. Enjoy. Love.
