Banana "Nicecream"

Remember when you were a kid and you only dreamed of having ice cream for every meal? Well if you're like me that dream never really died and you spent more than a few nights with a pint of cookies and cream in one hand while watching Law & Order on Netflix until 3am. Oh just me? Ooops... Well luckily for me I can now have GIANT bowls of ice cream for every meal in any flavor I desire! This recipe couldn't be any more guilt-free or easy!

Ingredients:

  • 8 Frozen Bananas

Directions:

  1. Freeze your RIPE bananas. Your bananas are not ripe until they are covered in a bunch of pretty brown freckles.
  2. Process your bananas in your food processor or high-speed blender until smooth (like ice cream/soft serve). You may have to stop and scrape down the sides a few times. Be patient with this step and don’t be too quick to add liquid. Adding liquid will make it more like a smoothie bowl. 
  3. OPTIONAL- Add in whatever flavor add-ins you want! Here are some of my favorites:
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract for vanilla
  • 4-6 tbsp raw cacao powder for chocolate
  • aprox. 2 cups frozen strawberries for strawberry
  • 1 cup soaked dates for caramel
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract, fresh mint leaves or spinach (for color), raw cacao nibs or dairy free chocolate chips for mint choc-chip

Raw-Vegan Magic Hard-Shell Topping:

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener of choice)
  • OPTIONAL: 1 tbsp vanilla extract
