3 Raw Vegan Ice Cream Recipes to Please the Pickiest of Eaters // Guest Post by Marina Yanay-Triner of Soul in the Raw

These 3 raw vegan ice cream recipes have pleased the pickiest eaters I know. While they may sound so incredibly simple, they are actually an amazingly delicious mock version of real soft-serve ice cream.

And why do I prefer this version? Dairy ice cream is full of antibiotics, preservatives, and animal fat, which has been found to raise the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. It is extremely acidic and toxic to our bodies.

These 3 ice creams are drenched in goodness. And don’t let the fruit scare you. Fruit is a HEALTH FOOD – the fiber in it cancels out sugar, meaning that it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels, and absorbs slowly, giving you all-day energy. It is full of mineral and vitamins, and carbs are the basis of what makes our body run – the basic units of its energy needs.

These recipes are perfect for summer, and kids will absolutely love them! They are sweet, juicy, and fulfilling. I recommend having them BEFORE your meal. Why? They will better digest that way, and will aid you in cutting down sugar cravings.

These recipes are part of my Raw Vegan Ice Creams ebook. The ebook includes 26 raw vegan ice creamrecipes that are all extremely quick to make (20 minutes tops!), delicious, and completely natural.

1. The Even Energy Ice Cream

Coffee is extremely acidic for the body. Instead, I recommend trying this ice cream. It contains caffeine in the matcha powder, but this caffeine is alkalizing, and slow releasing, meaning you will get sustained energy rather than peaks and crashes.

The Recipe

Servings: 4 for dessert, 1 for full meal

Ingredients:

4 frozen bananas

1 teaspoon matcha powder

4 Medjoul dates

¼ cup water

Preparation:

1. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender, or food processor.

2. Mint Chocolate Cookie Dough

I love that this dessert is low fat, but still gives you that extra delicious and fulfilling power of the minty cookie dough. It is very grounding, and perhaps better saved for a special occasion since it is just a tiny bit more work. This recipe provides 4 times the needed amount of cookie dough, unless you like more. But you can definitely make yourself extra and save it for later.

The Recipe

Servings: 4 for dessert, 1 for full meal

Ingredients:

For the Nice Cream:

4 frozen bananas

¼ cup of water

For the cookie dough:

20 deglet nour dates

1/4 cup dried mulberries (or replace with oats)

1 tbsp carob powder (or raw carob powder)

1 drop pure peppermint extract

Pinch of cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

1 tbsp cacao nibs

2 tbsp spirulina powder

Preparation:

1. Place dates and mulberries in the food processor and process until they break down. Add the rest of the ingredients, and process until a giant ball forms in your food processor.

2. Take out that ball, and form it into small cookie dough balls, or any shape of your liking. The size really doesn’t matter here.

3. Place on top of nice cream.
