Strawberry Banana Vegan Ice Cream Cake

Strawberry Banana Vegan Ice Cream Cake

Strawberry Banana Vegan Ice Cream Cake

This recipe is so simple to make and it’s super healthy! It truly does taste just like ice cream but better! Plus, it’s vegan! It’ll last you all week long (depending who eats it) 😉 It’s only about 172 calories per serving and there’s about 6 servings or so.

Costs under $20 for 6 servings! 

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of raw, unsalted cashews (I like the ones from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 wole bananas (peeled)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Toppings: 

1/4 cup of light brown sugar

4 fresh strawberries

Other Ingredients:

  • 12 fresh strawberries

Directions:

  • Add cashews and almond milk into a blender at a low speed, then gradually speed it up to high for 2 – 3 minutes until smooth
  • Then, add in all the other ingredients. If it’s not smooth enough or it’s too thick, add in more almond milk until creamy
  • In a springform pan, line to rim with fresh strawberries cut in half. You’ll want to line the inner rim of the pan with the berries facing upside down – with the back of the berries against the inside of the pan
  • Then, pour the ice cream mixture into the spring form pan, which should then push the berries against the pan
  • Sprinkle the light brown sugar on top of the ice cream mixture
  • Then, stir it around to give it the design in the picture
  • Lastly, add some berries on top
  • Freeze for about 2 – 3 hours

When ready to eat, let sit on counter for 30 minutes. I serve it with a little bit of fresh maple syrup drizzled on top!

Enjoy!

Peach and Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake (Gluten Free)

The best gluten free cake, ever!

Gluten Free Greek Fruit Yogurt Cake

Ingredients: 

  • 1 and 1/2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 peaches, sliced into wedges
  • 6 oz blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Grease the side and the bottom of the 9×3-inch springform pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together in large bowl. Spray the springform pan with olive oil.
  3. Transfer the cake batter to the springform pan. Top with sliced peaches, and scatter blueberries evenly on top in the spaces between the peach slices. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 teaspoon granulated sugar.
  4. Bake until cake turns golden, and the tester comes out clean in the center, about 30 – 40 min, depending on your oven! Midway through baking, I like to put some extra peach slices and extra blueberries on top of the cake for prettiness, and return cake to baking.
  5. Let stand for 20 minutes once it’s done baking. Then take spring form pan off of cake and serve!

If you’d like it a little more sweet, add a pinch of powdered sugar and/or fresh maple syrup drizzled on top of each slice!

Enjoy!
