  • Yield: 4 people

Description

Homemade dairy-free French Silk Ice Cream made in the blender with healthy ingredients to enjoy as soft-serve or creamy mocha chocolate chunk scoop style!


Ingredients

Vanilla Swirl

  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  • Optional: 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp non-dairy milk

Mocha Ice Cream

  • 8 frozen bananas
  • 3-4 tbsp cacao powder ((or cocoa powder))
  • 2 tsps espresso powder
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. For the vanilla swirl, whisk together the cashew butter, maple syrup (if using), and vanilla extract. Add the non-dairy milk slowly until it is a thick but pourable consistency. Set aside.
  2. In a high speed blender or food processor, combine the frozen bananas, cacao powder, and espresso powder.
  3. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides or use a tamper.
  4. Add the vanilla swirl and chocolate chunks, and serve immediately as soft-serve. 
  5. Or layer into a shallow pan, and freeze for 1-2 hours until scoop-able. Running the ice cream scoop under warm water first can be helpful too!
