Vegan IceDream

I don't know about you, but I'm so over junk food right now. We all like to indulge a little (or a lot) over the holidays, and every time I do, it's a big fat reminder of why I eat and love a whole foods plant based diet. The slice after slice of pecan pie, dairy lurking in everything, and processed foods I've been consuming over the past week just make me feel icky. There's no other way to describe it. Lethargic, unmotivated, foggy thinking, grouchy. Ugh. So enough was enough - it was time to eat real food again, but my biggest downfall with food is my infamous, insatiable sweet tooth! (Who's with me?!) In my desperation to satisfy my sugar cravings while still maintaining a wholesome diet, I came up with my new favorite recipe, Vegan IceDream.
So simple. So satisfying. Endless combinations and variations. Single serving size. Could it be any more perfect?

Vegan IceDream
2 frozen bananas
3 tablespoons (or more) nut butter of choice (I've never actually measured it)
Agave (or sweetener of choice) to taste
  • Blend all in food processor to the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Devour.
This is just the base. You can take it anywhere from here! In the photo above I added fair trade cocoa powder, hemp seeds, and frozen blueberries for a chocolate treat. I've topped it with my morning granola. You could add walnuts and dried cherries. A fruit syrup. Baked apples and pears. The possibilities are endless! Anything you would put on an ice cream sundae is fair game! I really hope you make this, see how easy and delicious it is, and share it with everyone you know.

How did you know this was EXACTLY what i needed? I completly feel you on the holiday foods. It seems in preparations for big dinners every other meal has fallen to the wayside.
