MCLV Mange: Soft Serve Ice Cream

One of my favorite warm weather treats is banana soft serve. This raw, vegan, gluten-free treat is quick, easy, and guilt-free. And let’s be honest, is there anything more you need in a dessert?

BlueBerrySoftServeMCLV

{Blueberry: 1 Banana + 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries}

This recipe couldn’t be easier. In fact, I almost hesitate to call it anything as formal as a “recipe.” Whenever I have leftover bananas I cut them into thirds, seal them in ziplock baggies, and throw them in the freezer. Then when your sweet tooth hits throw as many chunks of banana into a blender or food processor as you want, blend, and add whatever flavors sound good.

It’s that easy! Just blend 1 banana + flavoring of choice + 1/2 cup water. Slurp!

PeanutButterIceCreamMCLV

{Peanut Butter: 1 Banana + 2 Tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter}

Some of my favorite ingredients are powdered peanut butter, coconut or peppermint extract, raw cacao, or frozen fruit. Whenever I have leftover fruit that I’m not going to get to before it goes bad I’ll chop it up & stick it in the freezer so I always have “fresh” fruit options.

The main danger with this treat is that it’s so easy you can make it all the time. Which I do.

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:

  3. Yes, it’s that time. I’m not even going to deny that I’m one of those people. I am. I love pumpkin everything. I went to Starbucks the day the pumpkin spice latte made its return. (Of course it was too hot in LA to even contemplate a latte, but an iced coffee with a pump of pumpkin still satisfied a craving.) Pumpkin puree, plain Greek yogurt, half a banana, maple syrup, cinnamon and peanut butter. Dope.

  8. I adore banana soft serve. I was skeptical at first, but once I tried it a few summers ago, I was hooked. I love the idea of combining it with things like powdered peanut butter, too — I happen to think that PB and banana is one of the world’s greatest flavor combinations.
