Happy National Ice Cream Day!
Who doesn’t love a nice bowl of ice cream? And even as a Plant Based Nutritionist I enjoy a bowl of “nice” cream whenever I can but no ice cream for me.
The Get Your Vibes version of ice cream is dairy free, and it's made with whole, real, ingredients. I bet if people knew what was really in ice cream they would eat a lot less of it. I know it would be horrible of me to ruin ice cream for you on National Ice Cream day with a list of horrible toxic ingredients and informing you that there is quite a bit of pus in dairy and ice cream you’re eating due to the amount of infections that dairy cows endure, so I will just link to those sources and let you do your own research.
Now let’s get to the good stuff, Get Your Vibes Nice Cream!!!! This recipe is so health that you could eat it for lunch! Yes, Nice Cream for lunch! The ingredients will have you feeling and looking your best, you will need a blender, but other than that no complicated ice cream maker. The recipe and directions are listed below. Enjoy and may this Nice Cream help you Get Your Vibes!
Serves 2 (or if you’re like me, then serves 1, I can eat a huge bowl of this, lol)
4 frozen bananas
2 teaspoons of cacao
2 tablespoons of wildflower honey or coconut nectar
3-4 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter
¼ cup of unsweetened almond milk or water (depending on your blender you may need more)
For the topping you can use whatever you like but this is what I enjoyed
3-4 tablespoons of coconut flakes
3-4 tablespoons of raw pistachios
3-4 tablespoons of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Place all the ingredients in a blender (with the exception of the toppings) and blend. Depending on the strength of your blender, pause it, scrape down the sides and continue to blend! Transfer from the blender into a bowl, add the toppings and enjoy!
Not only is this recipe incredibly healthy but it’s cruelty free! So on this National Ice Cream Day I hope you’re inspired to try a kinder version of this delicious treat!
