These Strawberry Vanilla Nice Cream Sundaes is simple, delicious dessert recipe that’s a healthy alternative to ice cream! You take your frozen bananas, strawberries, protein powder, and vanilla extract and blend them together- adding little splashes of almond milk at a time until you start to get that creamy ice cream-like texture! Vegan, gluten-free, naturally sweetened.
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I suppose I am a little cliche, but it usually involves pink + hearts + strawberries + chocolate + sprinkles. I mean, who really cares if it’s cliche when it’s as tasty as these Strawberry Vanilla Sundaes! So in this sundae, I made vanilla nice cream and strawberry nice cream. Oh, and btw, no- nice cream isn’t a typo. Have you heard about the nice cream craze?! Well let me tell you, if you’re just now getting on the nice cream truck, then you’re in for a real (healthy) treat! Omigosh, someone should totally start a nice cream truck… genius! You won’t believe how much the texture really is like real soft serve ice cream! And guess what?! The actual “ice cream” is made with only 5 ingredients! F.I.V.E. And you know what else? You can eat this kind of ice cream for breakfast because the main ingredient is fruit, I also add protein powder in my nice cream recipes, and is optional, but it really enhances the flavor and also adds some much-needed plant protein- if you’re vegan, that’s super important. So by now, you must be intrigued…
So here’s what you do… easy peasy. You take your frozen bananas, strawberries, protein powder, and vanilla extract and blend them together- adding little splashes of almond milk at a time until you start to get that creamy ice cream-like texture! Guys, that’s it! I’m not pullin’ yo chain. I bet this would be super fun for the kiddos (and doesn’t take long, so you can indulge their little sweet toofers in no time)! Spreading much love and healthy goodies to you and yours this Valentine’s Day!
** NOTE: make sure you freeze your bananas and strawberries overnight to make this for the next day
