Hi Angels! I have been craving sweet and decadent food lately and I am not one to fight against my cravings!!! If my body wants it, then my body is going to get it!
Since becoming Vegan, I have been missing peppermint choc chip ice cream and wanted to try and come up with something that tasted similar and filled my sweet spot. Alas, I have found it!
I hope you enjoy 🙂
STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. For this I used 2 bananas, 1 avocado, almond and coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla essence, peppermint essence, crushed peanuts and dairy free choc chips.
STEP 2 – I chopped up and froze 2 bananas in a freezer bag overnight. I added them to a blender with just enough almond and coconut milk (about 1/2 a cup) to blend them all til smooth and creamy. I then added 1 avocado and blended. I added 2 TBS of maple syrup, 1 tsp. of vanilla essence and 2 tsp. of peppermint essence. Please add more or less of anything to suit your preferred taste. Blend.
STEP 3 – Pour the mixture into a container and add your choc chips. Place into the freezer for about 3-4 hours.
Eat alone of serve with some hot, chocolate fudge topping and crushed peanuts. You can either buy some cruelty free chocolate topping or make your own using full fat coconut cream, cacao powder and sugar (or stevia).
I hope you enjoy this take on peppermint choc chip ice cream as much as we did.
Until next time eat well, smile and be kind to animals 🙂
