Raw Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Ice Cream with Coconut Whipped Cream

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This snack is my jam. I don’t know if my taste buds are just totally tainted after years of eating like this, but I think it tastes like a milkshake. And it only has this many ingredients in it:

  1. banana
  2. almond butter
  3. cocoa powder
  4. almond milk

If you want the coconut whipped cream on top (and you do) you’re looking at: full fat coconut milk and vanilla extract. That’s it.

I suppose it’s not truly raw with the processed cocoa powder and coconut milk, but I also don’t know those rules so humor me. Let’s have a late-night snack.

Raw Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Ice Cream with Coconut Whipped Cream

The “ice cream” portion of this treat is your standard banana soft serve made with a frozen banana. If you go with a fresh banana instead you can create more of a pudding or mousse consistency. The coconut whipped cream comes from Angela Liddon’s Oh She Glows Cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk chilled in fridge overnight
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Place banana, almond butter, cocoa powder and almond milk in a blender and process until smooth. Scoop into serving dish and rinse blender.
  2. Open the chilled coconut milk and pour off the water so only the cream remains
  3. Place coconut cream and vanilla in a blender and process until fluffy. Top ice cream and store the rest in an airtight container in the fridge.

I can feel you rolling your eyes at me that this could possibly be a suitable dessert stand in, but I need you to trust me. I made it to power through a 2am work session last night and it totally turned my night around. I also really like it in
