Cool Off with Banana Mango Vegan Nice Cream

When the weather is steamy like it has been this month, my favorite way to

cool off is to whip up some quick vegan nice cream combinations in my

high speed blender or food processor.

The end result is totally dependent upon what fresh, ripe, organic fruit I have

in my kitchen.

Last night, I froze a couple of ripe bananas, one mango and some pineapple slices

and when I woke up this morning, I couldn’t wait to take them out of the freezer

and plop them into my Vita-Mix.

I added a little almond milk, a tablespoon of organic coconut oil and a large scoop

of vegan protein powder for extra nutrition.

Within five minutes, I had a ice cold, creamy treat–ready to eat!

I decided to place my nice cream into the freezer for a while to firm it up a little

more.

Once it was firm, I topped my banana mango nice cream with fresh, organic

blueberries, grabbed a spoon and gobbled up the goodness.

Directions

Add all of the frozen ingredients to your high-speed blender jar or food processor.

(I used my Vita-Mix.)

Add some of the almond milk.

Blend on low to start and increase speed as the frozen ingredients are pulverized

and smooth.

Add the coconut oil and protein powder.

Continue to blend until a thick, creamy consistency is achieved.

When all of the ingredients are blended, turn off the blender or food processor.

Eat immediately or pour into a freezer safe container until it is firmer.

Scoop it up with an ice cream scoop.
