Most Glorious Desert EVER – Banana Nut “Ice Cream” Recipe

Good Evening Lovelies!

With the arrival of the first snow of the year here in the North, and to celebrate of the arrival of my bestie from NY, it was an occasion for desert. While this bombshell is incredibly delicious, it contains no dairy, no sugar (other than natural fruit sugar), its vegan, it cures your sweet tooth and it includes chocolate. Does it get any better? I think not!

You will thank me later for this one, I can promise you.


2 Frozen bananas

1/2 cup of raw walnuts

2 tsp of Raw cacao powder

Sprinkle of cinnamon

1 tbs of Almond, rice or coconut milk

Sprinkle raw cacao nibs on top (optional)


Slam it in a blender (after you have frozen your ripe bananas over night)


Sprinkle with cacano nibs

Enjoy right away if you can’t wait, or stick it back in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden it up a little

It’s the most simple and quick recipe I’ve adapted from another I’ve found – and it is delicious. With only a few ingredients and a blender, you can feel like you’re chowing down on heaven sent ice cream — but in reality there is no cream at all.
