When the weather gets hot, we can't help but start thinking about ice cream. Summer screams for ice cream! Remember running out of the house at the sound of the approaching ice cream truck as a kid and lining up for the ultimate cool sweet treat?
Of course, these days, as healthy-conscious adults, we probably wouldn't be caught dead eating the sugar-loaded, artificially-colored ices that lured us as kids.
Luckily, we have a recipe for you to make home ice cream that is vegan, sugar-free, and yummily packed with nutritional goodies, created by Keith himself!
Made with your favorite, original, and world's finest ceremonial grade Cacao and a mere two more ingredients, it is super easy, super healthy, and super yummy.
Naturally sweetened by ripe bananas -did you know they are often referred to as nature's candy- it requires no additional sweetener. Just make sure bananas are at least partially brown before peeling, chopping, and then freezing.
The more ripe your bananas, the sweeter your ice cream will be. Still too bitter for your liking? You can add some natural sweetener like maple syrup and blend again.
And, if you are not too fond of banana flavor, don't worry. The richness and full taste of Keith's Cacao does a great job of masking the banana and adding your favorite nuts masks it even more.
This ice cream is quite soft and melts fast. You can eat it immediately or freeze it until solid. Although it tastes the best the day it's made, you can technically freeze it for up to a few weeks and thaw before eating.
If it's too hard, let it stand at room temperature for at least 10 minutes or until it has the perfect consistency.
Give it a try, adjust according to your taste, and play around with other frozen fruit and different nuts. And let us know your favorite way of using Keith's Cacao to make the ultimate frozen treat that makes every season ice cream season!
The easiest and most delicious way to make Ice Cream. Created by the Chocolate Shaman himself, Mr. Keith Wilson.
