That’s it, sunny days are finally here ! The perfect time to enjoy a good ice cream under the sun. But it is sometimes difficult to find ice creams without dairy products : they are quite rare in ice cream parlors and in supermarkets.
Even some sorbets contain it, for more smoothness … No thanks, we prefer a cruelty-free version ! What if we tell you that there are vegan ice creams, healthy and super easy to prepare ? You don’t even need an ice cream maker ! The principle is a bit the same as for a smoothie : we mix fruits, but frozen, to obtain an icy texture.
The first step is simple : cut bananas into rings and put them in the freezer. These bananas are the basis of nice cream and guarantee a super nice texture.
Step 2 : customize ! It’s very simple, the nice cream is infinitely declinable. You can add fruit, cocoa, spices …
Last Step : we mix everything to get a delicious ice cream ! To maximize the pleasure, you can even add small toppings at the end, for crispness and a 100% instagramable result ! Yum 🙂
For more taste
Here are some ideas of accompaniments to add to your frozen bananas :
- Red fruits: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currants …
- Green vegetables for a green touch: spinach, kale, avocado …
- Vegetable milk and yogurt for smoothness
- Silky tofu
- Cocoa powder, vanilla flavor
- Peanut butter, oilseed mash
- Agave syrup or maple syrup
- Mint or basil leaves
- Matcha tea
- Ginger, spices
And for a perfect result, we love toppings :
- Fresh fruits
- Chia seeds
- Grated coconut
- Chocolate chips
- Goji berries
- Oilseeds : almonds, hazelnuts, cashews …
We made you a little Pinterest board for the occasion, with all the best recipes for nice cream 🙂 It will be perfect for a vegan picnic !
