These dairy free, gluten free, vegan ice creams are easy to make. Because they’re low fat banana ice cream they aren’t as creamy as traditional ice cream. And no ice cream machine is needed!

You could easily make these creamy by using coconut cream instead of bananas. Place a couple cans of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. The next day turn them over, open the can to drain the water from the cream. Place the cream only in a mixing bowl and whip with an electric mixer til fluffy. Then add in sweetener, whip some more then freeze.

With banana ice cream, or any fruit turned into ice cream, we’ll want to not let it freeze solid. I mean, you can but you’ll then need to let it slightly soften before scooping or eating.

Also fruit based desserts go from perfect when blended to hard crystallize bricks once fully frozen. I recommend adding the smallest amount of xanthan gum to fruit based ice creams to prevent crystallization when freezing. It’s totally optional and I haven’t played around with it enough to know the very best way to use it. But I do know this. Too much xanthan gum can turn smoothies into thick, mucus like drinks. It’s gross to say it but it’s worth mentioning. And I’m talking as little as 1 ts can be way too much. The stuff is powerful so always start with 1/16 ts or 1/4 ts.

Vegan Magnum Ice Cream Bars
The chocolate and caramel layers took this to the max! I didn’t add sweetener to the banana ice cream because processed it with vanilla protein powder. I only added the protein powder because the brand I own has a strong vanilla flavor. And I find it sweetens up nice cream enough for me. But I have hippie taste buds so I would think something like this is good. I recommend adding sweetener and leaving out the protein powder for a more less hippie taste buds.

Vegan Black Ice Cream (low fat nice cream)
Naturally colored by activated charcoal. The charcoal has no flavor so feel free to add flavored protein powder or drops of flavored extracts. Some people are completely freaked out by the idea of eating charcoal. Use some black food coloring if that’s you.

I had left over nice cream from making the magnum bars. I just added charcoal to that and froze.

Vegan Dippin Dots (frozen yogurt)
The smaller the dots the faster they freeze and the faster they melt πŸ™‚ Feel free to add in powdered sugar to sweeten the yogurt more. I used vanilla cashew yogurt but you could use any flavor.

I just used 1 container of yogurt. This didn’t make a lot. Feel free to make multiple trays of frozen yogurt dots.

*these melt VERY fast!

    • oh my god. We tried recording twice but Mark was so sleepy that he was leaving me hanging. I was like, “Dude, you’re leaving me hanging. This isn’t funny” ha ha ha. Lesson learned; do not expect Mark to be chatty kathy late at night. Next time there will be chit chat, for sure! <3 So glad you enjoy it πŸ™‚

        • I love it! Let’s do a walk in the woods & hold off on the huge picnic. I’ve been kind of running around crazy and short on time. A walk is just what I need. Is there a time Monday through Thursday that would work for you next week?

          • Monday morning my son has a dentist apt at 9 and on Thursday morning he sees his specialist from 1030-1130 (but then will need a nap) but im free all other times during the week:)

            • We’re free any time except tuesday evening. Want to go earlier in the day before all the bugs come out? How about Wednesday morning or afternoon?

                • awesome! Pick an exact time we should meet and I’ll be there. Heads up, I’m often not on time but I always have anxiety about running late. I will do my VERY best to be on time. The paved park is called Foxboro Park, Richardson, TX 75082. It’s right off of plano rd & braeburn. There’s playground and a field so just park in front of that and we’ll meet there.

                    I swear im not a freak. I just dont wanna be murdered by someone reading these comments lol

  1. I know first hand that charcoal isn’t weird stuff to scoff. I got extreme (I am talking “Get down to the flat below us and get me some of that charcoal!” extreme) cravings for wood charcoal. I ate it through my pregnancy with all of my kids. Just a note, I didn’t get that first lot of charcoal as the guy in the flat below was using briquettes. I can’t repeat what I told my ex husband when he told me that πŸ˜‰
