I’m back! (Social media detox update coming soon)
I have been a huge fan of banana ice cream, even before I was vegan. It is SO versatile. You can make it any flavor, add any topping…and it’s actually good for you.
This week, my boyfriend and I were craving something sweet after dinner and I remembered we had a bag of frozen mixed berries in the freezer. After making them into a sweet sauce and seeing what else I had in my cabinets and refrigerator, this delightful sundae was created.
It really is freakin amazing.
2-3 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons of cacao powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2-3 tablespoon of peanut butter
1/2 of frozen mixed berries
1 teaspoon of agave nectar
shredded coconut (if desired)
First, add the bananas, cacao powder, vanilla and peanut butter into a food processor. I like to let the bananas thaw for a few minutes, as it is easier to blend them. Blend all your ingredients until smooth, like ice cream.
While your food processor is mixing everything together, add the frozen mixed berries to a saucepan and let simmer on medium heat. Once the berries begin to melt, add the agave nectar. Let simmer until the berries aren’t frozen anymore.
Next, simply assemble. I topped this with shredded coconut for some texture. I would also suggest adding some more peanut butter on top! I love this recipe because it feel like I’m eating a dessert but it’s all nature’s goodness instead of processed sugar 🙂
