Healthy Vegan Icecream

#1 Postby KatimaDanny » Sun May 02, 2010 9:05 pm

For 1 person

In a bowl, mash up/ blend

1 banana
1/4 avocado
some rice milk/ almond milk/ soy milk/ hemp milk/ any kind of milk

Freeze over night.

The texture and taste is very much like ice cream. It is a healthier alternative to other ice creams you will find at a store. I have this for breakfast sometimes. Those 3 ingredients are just a base. You can add some Cocoa powder, or Carab Powder, vanilla, nuts, agave, ground up some hazelnut and try it too. You can add anything to it. I add sprouted buckwheat sometimes. It is a sweet recipe. No pun intended.

Last summer I made frozen banana ice cream almost every day (frozen banana + chocolate protein powder + pb in a food processor). Super good!

Frozen chopped bananas
Dried figs
Berries if you feel like it

Blend! It's sooooo good.

Well the dried figs are essential for getting the right texture so in this case use dried figs and not fresh ones if you can!!! =)

My two young sons love when I make it by putting frozen bananas in our omega juicer and topping it with rasberries :)

Simple and goooooood

Lemon juice?

And the bananas by themselves have a very poor texture IMO. Fats are essential for getting a softer 'ice cream' texture....

Fat sucks, dried figs do the job. Trust me. Fuhrman has a youtube video of it I think.

When I use our Omega juicer with just bananas the texture is softer without the added fats ;)

I dig the simple one ingredient frozen banana method myself, but that's just me. You gotta make sure they get really good and frozen...HARD. and then I usually stick it in the freezer for a little longer after blending, and stir it up...with crushed strawberries, oh yeah!

I cut them into coins then put 'em in a Tupperware to freeze. Toss 'em in a food processor and you have creamy banana ice cream. I've never had a problem with texture, it always turns out the way I like it and not flaky or icy.
