Cherry Chocolate Nice Cream is so smooth and creamy, you won’t miss the real deal! Made with only bananas, cherries, chocolate and vanilla, this is a healthy vegan alternative to traditional ice-cream. If you like Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia flavor, you will love this recipe!
4 cups sliced bananas, frozen
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 cup frozen cherries
½ bar dark chocolate
3 tablespoons plant milk
- Chop the chocolate and frozen cherries into pieces. If you are not making the recipe immediately, place the chocolate and cherries in the freezer until ready to use.
- Place the frozen banana slices in the bowl of a food processor with vanilla and 3 tablespoons of cold plant milk. Process until smooth and creamy.
- Add chopped chocolate and frozen cherries and pulse a couple times until just incorporated.
- Enjoy immediately or transfer into a metal loaf pan, smooth out the surface and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 4 hours, then remove the plastic wrap, leave for a couple minutes at room temperature to thaw slightly before scooping out with an ice-cream scoop.
If your food processor or blender has trouble blending frozen bananas, add a little more plant milk but no more than 1 tablespoon at a time.
Chopped chocolate can be swapped for mini chocolate chips.
For vegan nice cream use dairy-free chocolate.
