Making vegan, plant-based ice-cream is hands down one of the easiest foods and desserts to prepare.
You don’t need any special equipment and all you really need is one ingredient. Now, you might be a little skeptical, but hear me out. It’s all about waiting until your bananas are beautifully spotted and soft.
This is the best way to do this. Of course, if soggy and slimy bananas freak you out, you could use unripe bananas, but you’ll end up with ice-cream that unsweetened and you’ll feel tempted to throw in whatever sweeteners you have on hand.
This. Is. Why. You. Need. Ripe. Bananas.
How To Make Plant-Based Banana Ice-Cream
- 1 ripe banana
- Water or vegan milk
- Peel and cut the banana into 1-inch chunks.
- Place the pieces on a glass plate and freeze for at least 2 hours. You may freeze overnight.
- Once frozen, pull out the banana chunks from the freezer.
- Throw the banana chunks into a high-powered blender or food processor.
- Add a couple of tablespoons of water/milk at a time. Blend until it becomes ice-cream-like.
Pro-tip: If you want a little more umph to your plant-based, vegan ice-cream, add almond slices or a dribble of peanut butter.
