Strawberry Banana Vegan Ice Cream

IMG_9113You’ve probably heard of vegan ice cream. Or at least ‘nana ice cream’. Well if you haven’t, it is simply a homemade ice cream made without dairy! It usually consists of just frozen fruit and occasionally almond milk, depending on how thick or liquidy you like it.

I am telling you right now, this is the simplest treat you will ever make. And it tastes just like ice cream – maybe even better. The perfect part is that it’s healthy, so you can eat as much as you want! It is literally only two ingredients: strawberries and bananas.

1. Freeze fruit a minimum of 4-5 hours before making your ice cream

2. When they are frozen, put them in the blender, and blend until thick and creamy

The blending process may take a few minutes depending on what kind of blender you have. I use a magic bullet and I have to stop the blender and either scrape the edges or shake it every few minutes to ensure all the fruit is being blended up. It may seem like it’s not working or blending, but you just have to be patient and give it time. Unless you have a really good blender, than this is not necessary. The whole process takes a maximum of 5-6 minutes.
