Vegan Soft Serve Ice cream
2 servings/Prep time: 5 min
This is a quick cold dessert to beat the heat or just as a treat. I usually have 1 or 2 bananas from a bunch that go ripe before I can or want to eat them so I peel them, cut them into thirds and place the cut portions in a freezer bag and freeze them for up to one month. It is a great way of not throwing out food and re-purposing it. Plus, it is delicious, and it is worth letting the fruit ripen just to have them handy for this protein, potassium packed, icy refreshment.
2 – 3 frozen bananas
¼ – ½ cup non-dairy milk to ease blending
2 Tbs. nut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Place ingredients into a high speed blender and mix till everything is completely incorporated.
You can add 1-2 tsps. of cocoa if you like it chocolatey.
Change the extract flavor and experiment.
You can add mint extract and combine chocolate chips into the ice cream.
Try vegan cookie dough as an addition.
I like it with maple syrup and walnut butter and a few crushed walnuts on top.
Add fruit like strawberries and coconut butter for a tangy fusion.
