A holiday treat you can feel good eating? My Vegan Peppermint Ice Cream (Chocolate Nice Cream) is just that!
Is there anything better than the chocolate peppermint combination this time of year? I really don’t think so! It’s one of my favorite things to eat during the entire month of December. I never tire of the flavor combo.
I’ve come up with a way for you to enjoy the festive flavors in a totally clean eating package. My Vegan Peppermint Ice Cream (Chocolate Nice Cream) is only 5 ingredients and will totally have you fooled.
Any guesses on what’s in this? If you are thinking cream and sugar… you are wrong!
If you guessed bananas, you guessed right!
Now bear with me for a moment… you don’t actually taste the bananas. They serve as a nice and creamy, healthy base for the chocolate-y peppermint-y goodness that I mix in.
You are just going to have to trust me on this one!
To make the Vegan Peppermint Ice Cream (Chocolate Nice Cream) you can use a food processor or one of my favorite healthy kitchen tools the Yonanas Frozen Ice Cream Maker. It turns fruit into frozen “ice cream.”
The only ingredients in this are very ripe frozen bananas, almond milk, dark cocoa powder, vanilla extract and peppermint extract. That’s IT! Choose a spotted ripe banana to get maximum sweetness from the fruit. I like to keep them in my freezer always so I’ll have them on hand to make treats like this.
You can serve it in a bowl…
Or in a fun cone. These sugar cones aren’t “clean” but are pretty satisfying and not too terrible for you. This looks like way more of an indulgence than it actually is!
Either way, this Vegan Peppermint Ice Cream (Chocolate Nice Cream) is almost too good to be true. Almost…
Enjoy and share with your friends. As always I’d love to her what you think in the comments.
