Good morning and happy Sunday!
Need your chocolate fix? Want to be healthy? Vegan? Arenotveganbutwouldntmindbeingadventurousinthekitchen? Need comfort food? Fed up with me thinking of thinks that might appeal to you?
OK, if you wanna tick one of more of these, then you are in for a right good treat, as I have finally come to make a deliciously creamy, chocolatey, healthy vegan soft serve. Let it sit in the freezer for an hour or two longer, and you have icecream!
It's easily doubled, tripled, or made up for a crowd - but maybe in the latter case DO share some with the others, yeh?
This recipe ticks off THREE (yes, three!) of tour five a day...in one serving, and is deliciously cocoa-y (because sometimes that is a word). Four ingredients, a bowl and a stick blender - it's all you need *smiles*
Creamy Vegan Chocolate Soft Serve
1 medium banana, peeled and chopped
1 medium avocado (about 100-150g)
5 dried dates, torn into pieces
2-3 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- Simply have all the ingredients in a bowl, and whizz smooth with a stickblender. Now you have a sort of vegan chocolate mousse. Transfer to a container that can stand in the freezer and leave for about an hour for soft serve, a couple of hours for icecream.
- Once frozen to your liking, take it out and servie with whatever toppings you want. I reckon dessicated coconut og chopped nuts with some syrup would be delicious, but I simply enjoyed it eu natural, with a little waffle heart on the side.
This contains a lot of healthy fats, plenty of vitamins, and it tastes absolutely delicious! You can have this as a dessert or even for lunch, seriously - enjoy!
I'll be making this again, probably really soon...like...tomorrow - hooked!
I also bought some mini poppadums the other day -
Next to them is an egg, just to show you how small they really are! I have been dry-frying them in a pan until they bubble up and go golden brown, perfect for dipping into guacamole, hummous or basically any other dip you can think of!
Today I'm going to see two of my friends, enjoy the sunshine and just....live! T'is Sunday after all *smiles* And you? I hope you have a lovely day! What is your favourite ice cream recipe?
