Peanut Butter Banana Dark Chocolate Chip Nice Cream

This started off with a spur-of-the-moment, it’s international women’s day and you’re a kick-butt woman who deserves to TREAT HERSELF craving. I was feeling accomplished, had a job interview, went for a nice long run, and got everything I wanted to do accomplished that day so i was like “mmhmmm, peanut butter and dark chocolate time.”

You’ve probably noticed that’s one of my favorite combos because I make it ALL THE TIME, but who doesn’t? It’s freakin’ TASTY. So I threw a bunch of stuff I like in a blender and magic came out. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a hit (although I should have because it was so delicious the world deserved to know about it), but due to popular demand I have re-created my magic from the other night (I actually measured ingredients this time for you guys) and will now share the recipe.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is while it tastes unbelievable, I don’t feel guilty eating it like I would with most desserts. It’s all natural, refined sugar free, gluten-free, plant-based, and dairy-free. What could be better? No tummy troubles, no “okay, gotta work out extra hard tomorrow” regret, just happiness. And everyone deserves happiness. So start your engines, ladies and gents, and when I say engines I mean blenders, because you’re about to TREAT YOSELF! WOOOOOOO!

Raspberry Coconut Nice Cream with Date-Sweetened Dark Chocolate Syrup

I feel like although I now live in Canada, my body is stuck in Arizona still because I CONSTANTLY crave ice cream. It could be practically Antarctica outside (which it is basically everyday) and still there my tasters are craving a big ole bowl of that good stuff. They say nothing warms you up like eating a bowl of frozen cream and sugar, right?

Not right.

Yet here I am, in the middle of frigid February, posting about ice cream. Or, nice cream in this case, which is far superior to regular old cream and sugar. Don’t get me wrong, old fashioned ice cream tastes out of this world, but afterwards I always feel so bloated, gassy, guilty, and just downright sick. So not worth it.

So I’ve come up with a solution!

Ba-buh-duh-bahhhh…… Introducing coconut nice cream!

“And the crowd goes wild!!!” Said the imaginary announcer inside of our heads.

Not only is this dairy free, but also refined sugar free (and gluten free) so no more sick tummies! Have your dessert and don’t feel any of the guilt that goes along with consuming your stereotypical junk food. What could be better than that? Well, the taste is better than that so I guess there is one thing better. Ohhhhh baby I could eat a gallon of this stuff straight and still be hungry for more.

Fun fact: the first night I made this, my boyfriend actually legitimately licked his bowl clean.

AND on top of all that good stuff, you’re getting all the benefits that go with the consumption of coconut  products and raspberries (since that’s basically the entirety of this recipe). I’m talking improved immune systems, slow-burning energy, anti-aging qualities due to the hindrance of free radical activity, hydration, improved digestion, and anti-inflammatory qualities due to the loads of antioxidants! So if you still had even the tiniest bit of guilt about this “dessert,” kiss it bu-bye right now because this stuff is GOOD.

And oh by the way, did you notice the combination of flavors we’ve got going on here?

Raspberry + Coconut + Dark Chocolate = Heaven in a bite

Seriously, tell me you’re not salivating uncontrollably after reading those words together. I sure am. So next time you’re craving a bowl of ice cream (even if it’s freezing outside), turn off the guilt switch, grab out your handy-dandy blender, and give this nice cream a whirl! MMMM, yeah, I’m going to go make some right now too. Until next time, my loves.
