The temperatures are rising and the sun is shining — summer is here! Plant-based eaters can’t have dairy ice cream, but that doesn’t mean ice cream and other frozen treats are off limits. Thanks to non-dairy milk and fruit, it’s much easier to make a dairy-free ice cream or frozen treat than you may think. Check out these 10 frozen recipes to cool down this summer:
1. Frozen Banana Mummies
These cute, decorative dessert pops may be a bit scary looking and themed for Halloween, but they’re just as cool to eat in the summer too. Plus, they’re far healthier than a candy bar and will help satisfy your craving for one.
2. Fruity Frozen Yogurt Marbled Cake
With three different colored layers, this dessert looks far more complicated to make than it actually is. For the ingredients, all you need is three different types of fruit and some soy yogurt.
3. Sweet Potato Apple Pie Ice Cream
This recipe features an oat, pecan, and maple syrup streusel with some fabulous ice cream made of bananas, apple, roasted sweet potatoes, dates, non-dairy milk, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and allspice.
4. Raw Fruit and Coconut Ice Cream with Brownie Crust
This dish is a wow-worthy cake that’s perfect for displaying at a party. Each layer is made of a simple list of delicious plant ingredients such as coconut milk, banana, and walnuts.
5. Acai Berry Vegan Ice Cream
Acai powder and blueberries give this ice cream a rich, gorgeous purple color that is far too deep to resist. The taste is just as rich and delectable, perfect to cool down.
6. Raw Almond Chunky Monkey Ice Cream
When you’re noticing your bananas are starting to become unripe and brown, freeze them instead of waste them. You can use it for a fabulous Chunky Monkey ice cream. Aside from frozen bananas, all you need is almond butter, almonds, and dark chocolate.
7. Raw Vegan Banana Ice Cream Pops
This DIY treat is great for a group. Start with chopsticks and banana, then prepare three different types of frosting so your guests can have some options and a fun time self-decorating. They’ll get to choose between raw chocolate frosting, raw “white” chocolate and raspberry frosting, and peanut butter frosting.
8. Mindblowing Banana Chocolate Caramel Vegan Ice Cream Cake
Yes, this one really is mind-blowing and hard to believe that it’s vegan. This delicious and gorgeous dish features an almond and date crust with caramel, chocolate pudding, banana ice cream, and goji berry coulis.
