Carob Cashew Coconut Ice Cream

Carob Cashew Ice Cream

I love this ice cream! Its RICH, CHOCOLATEY, DELICIOUS, FULLY RAW, and VEGAN! The best part is it looks and tastes just like chocolate but so much healthier than any store bought gallon of dairy and sugar filled tub of guilt.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup lite coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons carob powder

Carob Cashew Ice Cream ingredients

  1. First, add some of the coconut cream into the blender to help move the frozen bananas from the bottom.
  2. Next, add all the bananas, cashews, and the carob powder.
  3. Blend on high for a few minutes, stopping periodically to push down the ingredients toward the bottom with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the remaining coconut cream to the desired consistency, which should be thick and creamy, not runny.

Raw Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream!

I’m starting to put together a list of favorite vegan ice creams and this recipe was definitely one of them! I especially love the deep rich color blueberries give my smoothies but this ice cream recipe not only looks amazing, it tastes amazing with a very berry flavor! If your into ice creams with a nutty texture, you can also try adding some chopped walnuts or almonds in the last 10 or 15 seconds of blending. The less time you blend the nuts, the chunkier the ice cream will be. My 2 year old son devoured a good sized bowl and loved it as much as I did so its kid tested and mother approved!  Best of all, this recipe is so simple yet super healthy with just 3 easy ingredients.

Blueberry Ice Cream Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups frozen organic blueberriesblue ice cream1vh2
2 cups frozen bananas
Unsweetened almond milk (just a few splashes)

Blend with a few splashes of unsweetened almond milk or water until thick and creamy. Vegan ice creams can be served immediately and can usually be refrozen to stay fresh for up to 2 days. Since it is recommended to eat atleast 3-4 servings of berries a week as part of your fruit intake, this recipe would be a great way to help you meet that need for you and the entire family.

The Power of Blueberries!BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries are a longevity food and have been ranked as one of the top fruits tested for antioxidant activity. Blueberries are repeatedly ranked in the U.S. as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits and vegetables. Blueberries can improve memory, mop up free radicals that cause aging, and are loaded with vitamin C and K! Raw blueberries provide you with the greatest nutritional benefits and we can even freeze them without damaging their delicate anthocyanins nor their antioxidants. Its best to buy them organic because as it turned out, organic blueberries had significantly higher concentrations of antioxidants and anthocyanins than conventionally ones.

Can there be such a thing as ice cream that’s actually good for you? Absolutely! This raw vegan homemade recipe is 100% dairy free and has only 4 ingredients. It has all the texture and flavor of real ice cream and tastes so light and creamy you will never know the difference! Recipes like this definitely make cheating on a healthy diet a thing of the past and best of all its kid tested and mother approved, a healthy treat for kids any day!!
Ingredients:
2 large ripe mangoes, cut in squaresMango Icecream
2 large bananas, cut in chunks
1- 6 ounce cup of plain coconut yogurt (SO Delicious brand is great!)
Juice from 1 lime

Directions:
~Freeze mango and bananas in a sealed container for 5 hours or overnight.
~Separate the frozen chunks (very easily done).

~Next, add lime juice into the blender first to assist with moving the ingredients more smoothly. 

~Add by layering the frozen fruit and coconut yogurt into the blender as you would a parfait. This also helps the blending process. Blend for about 2 minutes or until all the chunks are smooth. Depending on the power of your blender, you may need to stop and push down ingredients with a spoon to keep things moving.

~Serve as desired and add a dash of chili powder for a slightly spicy kick! This recipe will refreeze nicely and keeps its nice “ice cream” texture.

Makes about 3-4 delicious servings!  🙂
