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 recipe

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
  • Dates
  • 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
