Much to the dairy industries chagrin, all you really need in order to make an epic batch of raw vegan ice cream is a creamy, rich base of plant based fat (coming from nuts, seeds, coconut, avocado, etc.), a healthy sweetener option, frozen bananas, and something to blend it all together of course. And if you’re feeling like really going for it – a generous drizzle of raw chocolate sauce + sprinkling of  fleur de sel on top.


Nice cream
  • 3 frozen bananas, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder or vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
Chocolate sauce
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut cream (RFR tip - you can make your own by blending young Thai coconut meat with a splash of coconut water)


To make the nice cream:
  1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth, adding some coconut cream or vegan milk if your blender needs help.
  2. Scoop into one or two bowls and leave in the freezer while you make the chocolate sauce.
