You think you’ll never have ice cream again because you went vegan or you want to adopt a vegan lifestyle? Well…fear no more! You’re about to make the best vegan ice cream ever (that also happens to be the healthiest)! And the best part is that you don’t even need an ice cream machine for it. A simple food processor (or high-speed blender) will work. You won’t regret making this gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free ice cream – promise. So let’s get started!
The first step is to gather the only ingredient you’ll need for this amazing treat! BANANAS! You’ll need about 2 bananas per serving! Use ripe, spotted bananas for this ice cream.
Peel the bananas and break them into chunks. Put them in a Ziplock bag.
Put the banana chunks in the freezer for at least 7 hours.
If you keep these ziplocks full of banana chunks in the freezer you can make ice cream anytime you want within seconds!
Place the chunks in a food processor. If you have a smaller processor you may have to work in batches.
Process until a smooth ice cream forms. This may take a while and it will look like it’s not working, but keep processing and you’ll get there!
Fill the ice cream in bowl and enjoy! You can top them with your favorites like blueberries, strawberries, a vegan chocolate sauce, sprinkles, coconut flakes,… or whatever you feel like. Or top it with this amazing Caramel Sauce! Seriously divine, I tell you!
