Low Fat Vegan Ice Cream!

True life, I thought I could NEVER be vegan for this simple reason: ICE CREAM.  Frozen yogurt, pudding, cheese, but mostly ice cream has always been my favorite food, my number one food to overeat, and the number one treat holding me back from full veganism. Then I discovered “nice-cream”.  Took 4 frozen bananas from the freezer, added a tsp of vanilla extract and a splash of unflavored/unsweetened soymilk, and 2 minutes later, I had 4 servings of deliciousness. Seriously, the texture is out of this world. And wihile mildly banana-y, not in an overpowering way. If you add vanilla, it tastes like vanilla, cocoa powder, tastes just like a chocolate soft serve. I have NO idea how simply freezing a banana turns it into the fluffy, stiff-peaked, soft-serve of my dreams, but it DOES!  I chop my bananas before I freeze them just for ease of blending, and fortunately I invested in a vitamix, ready with a tamper to keep bananas in the line of blending, so it is quite easy. You will not believe this is dairy free (and also low fat!).
You need:

Bananas, frozen

Non-dairy mild to aid blending

A strong blender or food processor
Flavors optional:

Vanilla extract

Cocoa powder

Frozen fruit of choice
Blend, serve, add toppings if you like, and enjoy!!!  Ooh now I need to buy some vegan ice cream cones!
