Raw Vegan Strawberry Banana Chocolate Freeze

Chocolate Strawberry Icee

Some friends of mine make what they call "yonanas" on a regular basis. It's basically frozen bananas blended until they create an ice cream-like texture. It's healthy, and it satisfies a sweet tooth. I tried a little experiment today, that I think turned out really well. I added frozen strawberries and a raw vegan chocolate sauce. Adding the strawberries make the texture more like shaved ice than ice cream, which I think is equally as good.

This is a great summer dessert that won't keep you from looking great in your swimsuit!

Ingredients for the freeze:

  • 1.5 cups frozen bananas
  • 1.5 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 Tbs cacao powder (no sugar added)

Ingredients for the syrup:

  • 2 Tbs raw maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder (no sugar added)
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil
  • 2 Tbs water (can add more to thin it out)

Optional topping: berries

Directions:

  • Combine freeze ingredients in a food processor until it reaches a shaved ice consistency
  • Combine syrup ingredients in a bowl and stir until it reaches a syrup consistency (can add more water to thin it out)
