Peanut butter banana nicecream recipe

Hey all,

A quick recipe which I literally couldn’t get enough of!

You will need-
6 (or more) frozen bananas
2-3 tbsp (depending on how many bananas you use and how much of an addict you are!) peanut butter (homemade is best!)
2 (or more) Medjool dates (pitted and soaked for a few hours in about half a cup of water)
2 tbsp Carob powder
1 tbsp Cacao nibs
2 tsp cocoa powder (optional)

Method-
Using your blender, blend the frozen bananas with a small splash of water until you get a beautiful ice cream consistency, now you can add the peanut butter after this stage or swirl it in after! Totally up to you!

Next blend the dates, along with the water they have been soaked in, you can add more but I like a thick consistency, then add in the carob powder and the cocoa powder (if you want a proper chocolatey flavour!)

Put in bowl, cup or hey you can even use your hands…I wont judge!

Sprinkle over some Cacao nibs for the crunch factor and wow, perfection in a bowl (or hands..!)

Enjoy! #veganfriendly

Chocolate banana nicecream…

Hey guys,

Here is my gorgeous chocolate banana nicecream!

Freeze those bananas, I did 3! Then whizz them in your blender with a small splash of water. (Not too much unless you want a smoothie!!) Then keep whizzing until you achieve an icecream consistency!

Next mix up 1 tablespoon of carob powder with a few teaspoons of palm sugar! Then pour over the nicecream and top with cacao nibs and dark choc chips, yum!

This was my lunch during my raw till four, high carb vegan lifestyle, im so far loving this and not missing meat at all!

Enjoy! 🙂

So there you have it, I think I have created a yummy lunch, it filled me up and was healthy all at the same time. Give it a try and you wont be disappointed, also a quick tip take out the amount of frozen peas you need the night before and leave in the fridge, that way you are good to go. It really does take minutes!

Happy eating 🙂
