Cherry Chocolate Chip Nice Cream (Vegan)

Cherry Chocolate Chip Nice Cream.  My family’s challenge lately has been to cook from the pantry, fridge or freezer.  We have so much excess food and we need to get through it all.

That is exactly how this healthy nice cream recipe came about.  I have leftover frozen bananas and leftover frozen cherries in the freezer.  Plus, a HUGE bag on Enjoy Life chips to use up.

5 Minute Banana Ice Cream (Vegan)

This 5 Minute Banana Ice Cream is LIFE CHANGING.  Seriously.  Sometimes you just get a craving for some ice cream.

I make banana ice cream when I get those cravings.  Most store bought ice creams are laden with additives, saturated fat, processed sugar and too many calories.

I have an ice cream maker, but sometimes I forget to put the bowl back in the freezer.  So when I have a sweet craving, I make this super easy vegan banana ice cream.

I have a smoothie version of this as well.  My Tropical Smoothie Peanut Paradise is made in a similar way.

The best part of this recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to make this.  I use my vitamix, but I have used a magic bullet in the past as well.

You will be surprised at how decadent this banana ice cream tastes.  You will feel like you are cheating!  Can it get any easier?  I have used this many times to curb a sweet craving.  It really works!
