This 2-Ingredient Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream (no churn) is creamy, healthy, absolutely delicious and so easy that you can have ice cream in just 10 minutes!
What is this summer’s best kept secret? Banana “nice” cream, aka the easiest possible way on earth to make ice cream. All you need are frozen bananas, and your favourite fruit for your desired ice cream flavour. In ten minutes, you have frozen, scoop able ice cream. Yes, I was shocked too when I found out about it, and it was by mistake, too. That mistake led to this amazing 2-Ingredient Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream, so you definitely need to read on to find out how to make your own super easy fruit ice cream.
It all happened when I was making a smoothie bowl. I was so proud of my self that I had diligently remembered to freeze my bananas so I wouldn’t have to add ice (Jessica 1 – 0 Watery Smoothie). The very first time I put the frozen bananas in a food processor before adding the rest of my smoothie ingredients I didn’t expect anything extraordinary to happen. I just wanted to mash them together before adding in everything else. As we all usually do, I got distracted and went on my phone – hello cat videos. A few minutes later I remembered where I was and looked down at the food processor. What was once hard frozen banana coins was now a creamy, soft-serve like consistency.
“What?!” Was my first thought. Then, “this is just like making peanut/almond/cashew butter!!” I googled “ice cream made with bananas” and the nice cream world came tumbling towards me. It was as if I had unlocked a secret level on my favourite video game, or found a magical section on Netflix of unlimited series. Anyway, I was hooked.
One taste and you’ll also be in love. Fruity, creamy, delicious vegan blueberry ice cream and so easy. You can actually serve it immediately for a soft serve consistency or freeze it up to get a thicker consistency. Like I said, either way, you’ll be hooked.
