No matter if it’s sunny or not, it’s hot enough to have ice cream (but do you need a specific season really?!) and instead of running to your local supermarket when the craving kicks in, why not making yourself, in a few min, some nice cream?!”Nice cream” for ice cream texture, nice taste, and no nasty ingredients. Only 2 or 3 ingredients, the easiest and fastest treat ever, that’s also healthy and vegan!

Banana & peanut butter nice cream (with a touch of cacao or not)

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 2 frozen bananas (freezing it in slices on a plate will make things easier)
  • 1 tbsp unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder, if you want the chocolaty taste

Throw everything in the food processor until you get a smooth mix, with ice cream texture and enjoy or put back in the freezer to be enjoyed later!

If you don’t mind having it not vegan-friendly and want to add some protein to the mix, you can just add 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (and skip the cacao powder if you go for a flavored one).

Strawberry and cream popsicles 

You could totally blend everything together and pour it into the molds but if you want to see 2 colors, you need to make 2 different mixes.

For the red part, blend together:

  • 1 cup of strawberries (roughly 5 fruits)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 Medjool dates

For the white stripe, whisk 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract in 200ml of coconut milk.

Then follow these 3 steps:

1. Using a spoon (way easier!), pour strawberry mix, up to a third of each mold. Freeze for 45 to 60 min.

2. Take out of the freezer and add the coconut mix up to 2/3 of each mold. Freeze for 30-45 min, until stiff (not totally frozen).

3. Add the final layer of strawberry. Freeze overnight.

You can make 6 popsicles with this (I have small molds per 6, from Ikea). Run molds under water to loosen and enjoy!
