Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream – made with only 3 ingredients and no ice cream machine needed! It’s the perfect treat for hot summer days.
I’ve got a new favorite ice cream combo: bananas + strawberries + cookies! And yes, I’ve had my fair share of ice creams instead of lunches lately. But it has been way too hot to cook anyway. So don’t you dare judge me ;)
I love how easy it is to make banana-based ice cream and how crazy you can go with all the different flavors!
You don’t need an ice cream machine to make this healthy ice cream! A food processor (or alternatively a blender) will do. With a blender, I recommend adding a bit of liquid such as rice milk or almond milk to help the blades get all the fruits (this will also return in slightly softer ice cream). But with a food processor, you just need the frozen fruits and you’re good to go!
Pro tip for the summer: Always keep a stash of fruits in your freezer. That way you can make all kinds of different fruity nice cream recipes (bananas as the base + 2nd fruit).
How to make Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream
You will need:
- frozen bananas
- frozen strawberries
- shortbread cookies (I used vegan butter-flavored cookies by Veganz)
The basic steps
Step 1: Pulse the shortbread cookies until crumbly. Set aside in a bowl.
Step 2: Add the frozen bananas and strawberries to the food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Step 3: Add about 3/4 of the cookie crumbs to the ice cream. Pulse again.
Step 4: Then scoop the ice cream into a cone or bowl and sprinkle with the rest of the cookie crumbs. Enjoy!
