I know I recently shared a “nice cream” recipe and here I am, a few weeks later, sharing another one. Why? Because it’s summer and because I can and because they’re really different from one another.
And because I know you’ll love it.
Say hello to Vegan Mint Chocolate Ice Cream, your new favorite dessert.
Best of all, it only has 5 ingredients, so it’s super easy AND super delicious.
As summer starts to wind down and turn the corner towards autumn, you might be looking for something a little less sweet and fruity. Something a little more adult. Something the kids might not like quite as much and steal from your bowl.
This is that dessert.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
5-Ingredient Vegan Mint Chocolate Ice Cream
Serves 2 (or really, just 1. Why share?)
2 large frozen bananas (3 if you really do plan on sharing more than a few bites)
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tbs raw cacao powder (increase or decrease for a more or less chocolatey taste)
1 Tbs maple syrup (raw honey works, too, in a pinch)
1 sprig of mint (tear off the leaves. stem does not go in)
optional: 1 tsp vanilla
Add all of the ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor. Blend until thoroughly mixed and ice-cream-like.
If you want it less soft, refreeze. You also have to possess excellent self-control and delayed gratification capacity.
Otherwise eat it up before it all melts!
