Vegan Banana Pecan Ice Cream Recipe

Vegan versions of Ice cream are an excellent option for people who cannot consume dairy products. This Banana Pecan Ice Cream recipe contains no added sugar and is genuinely healthy. You’ll forget it’s not really ice cream!What is your guilty dessert pleasure?  Mine is ice cream.  I adore the way ice cream melts in my mouth.  I savor the sugar crystals that form when it melts a little and you re-freeze it.  The sweetness envelopes me in pure serenity.  Yep.  It’s my guilty pleasure.

But I avoid eating ice cream.  Why?  Sure, it’s high in calories, fat, and sugar.  But, I believe in living life with moderation and will occasionally indulge in a special treat.  Every time I eat the sweet gold that is ice cream, I get sick because I suffer some pretty significant lactose intolerance issues.

Sometimes, I even torture myself with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia.  Yep. You read that right.  A pint. There it is. My confession in black and white.  When I deprive myself of my favorite foods, I tend to binge on them later.  And, I do pay for it.  I will spare you the gory details.  Trust me.  You don’t want to know.

Vegan Recipes: A Delicious Escape

So, what’s a girl to do? Find substitutes, of course.  I would prefer something healthier, anyway. So, with that goal in mind, I accepted the opportunity to give a vegan ice cream cookbook a try.

If you like frozen treats but, for whatever reason, avoid dairy products, you must add Vegan Recipes: A Delicious Escape by Sam Kuma to your cookbook collection. His book contains a variety of easy-to-prepare desserts including "ice cream", freezies, slushies, and basic fruit or chocolate sauces. Most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen.If you like frozen treats but avoid dairy products, you must add Vegan Recipes: A Delicious Escape by Sam Kuma to your cookbook collection. His book contains a variety of easy-to-prepare desserts including “ice cream”, freezies, slushies, and essential fruit or chocolate sauces. Most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen.

I do wish this book had photos, but the recipes are complete, easy-to-follow, and yummy.

The book’s chapters cover:
1. Vegan Ice Cream Sundae Recipes
2. Vegan Fruit Ice Cream Recipes
3. Vegan Ice Cream Sorbet and Slush Recipes
4. Other Vegan Desserts

Finally, the last chapter even shows you how to combine some of the recipes to make your own sundaes!

      Thanks 🙂 With so many different dietary needs in our house, I’ve learned to adapt. It takes some doing sometimes, though.

    […] will probably use my new martini chiller the next time I make my Banana Pecan Ice Cream or Chocolate Banana Italian Ice – or a nice mint […]

    I too suffer from lactose interplant and stay away from dairy became of that. I love using bananas to make ice cream SO good.

      It is good! It’s also naturally sweet, so makes a great dessert for kids on a hot day.
