    Creamy Vegan Banana Nut Ice Cream topped with extra crunch & extra protein.Vegan Banana Nut Ice Cream

    A few years ago I started freezing my bananas and then blending them after dinner with peanut butter, dark chocolate and a splash of almond milk.

    Fast forward 4 years later and it is now a “thing” that people make. Banana “nice cream” you may know it as. It has become much more popular and commonly found in many vegan and organic cafes. It’s such a delicious go-to snack or sweet treat to start or end your day with.

    Today we are here to further enhance Vegan Banana Ice Cream and take it to the next level. The whole “new year, new you” concept is in full fledge and we all need some new healthy yet delicious recipe ideas to keep us motivated and on track for a healthy new year. A handful of people asked me if I had any new year resolutions and told me about their new “diets” and exercise routines they plan to start this year. I’m no nutritionist or health coach, but this isn’t about a diet, it is about a lifestyle. I taught myself what/how to eat with trial and error (don’t be deceived there were many errors on the way to my current eating and fitness lifestyle). I don’t follow a meal plan or something that someone tells me to do, I listen to myself and my body and what works for me. I strive for wholesome recipes that require minimal ingredients and don’t call for white flour, sugar and limited dairy (besides pizza and some yogurt) because that is what works for me.

    I hope that these recipes on my blog help inspire you like they have for me to eat foods that taste amazing and make you feel amazing so you won’t have to diet ever again! Just like this Vegan Banana Nut Ice Cream..

    I recently tried AboutTime’s Vanilla Vegan Protein and it is flipping DELISH! It is a plant based protein that is non gmo, gluten free, soy free and dairy free. They use a mix of pea protein, brown rice protein and pumpkin protein to make their own blend. The best part is that it comes in 3 different flavors (chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon spice) so the possibilities are endless here with recipe ideas.

    Vegan Banana Nut Ice Cream is only the start of some delicious recipes I’m whipping up for you with AboutTime protein. I don’t use protein powder often so I am super excited to start experimenting with it and sharing my recipes with you all!
