This gorgeous ice cream is completely dairy-free, naturally-colored, creamy, and delicious. I made this a while back for Bob’s Red Mill.
I made it right before the Easter holiday, but it’s amazing all year long.
I also created a Hazelnut Waffle Cone recipe to go along with the ice cream. It’s also gluten-free and dairy-free.

Hazelnut Waffle Cone (gluten-free/dairy-free)
makes 8 cones
1/3 cup @bobsredmill hazelnut flour
1/3 cup @bobsredmill oat flour
1 pinch of salt
1/4 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat a waffle-cone maker (or a griddle if you don’t own a waffle-cone maker—P.S. I don’t own one, so you can definitely do without).
In a bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients (eggs, milk, maple, oil, vanilla). Add in dry ingredients (flours). Stir together for at least 1-2 minutes. Make sure there are no lumps.
Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the batter onto waffle-cone maker (or griddle). Cook until golden brown. (If using a griddle, flip like a pancake and press with the turner to make sure it is cooked evenly and stays flat.)
Once golden brown on both sides, quickly remove from heat and shape around a cone roller or mold into a cone shape. (I used my ceramic cone shown in picture, lined with parchment.)
Repeat with remaining batter and set cones on cooling rack to cool and harden. Makes 8 cones.
Creamy Banana Cashew Ice Cream (dairy-free)
makes 2-3 servings
3 bananas, sliced and frozen
1/4 to 1/2 cup cashew butter (depending on how creamy you want it)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch of salt
1/4 cup almond milk
Put sliced/frozen bananas in blender (or food processor) first. Blend slowly for a few seconds to start breaking them apart.
Add in the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth, making sure to blend at a LOW speed.
Add superfood powders for color. I used blue spirulina powder (for the blue), pitaya / pink dragonfruit powder (for the pink), and orange dunaliella powder (for the orange). You can find these from Amazon, Terrasoul Superfoods, or Suncore Foods.
Eat immediately for soft-serve or freeze for 3-6 hours to get a firmer texture. Serves 2-3.

After not being able to even look at fruits and vegetables for months (thank you morning sickness during pregnancy), I can finally get back to making smoothies and smoothie bowls! It only took until the 3rd trimester!
I have been overly excited to share my favorite smoothie concoctions with you! (More to come!)
My absolute go-tos when making smoothies include: adding yogurt to make it creamy and frothy, and adding lemon juice (or any other citrus) to balance the sweetness.
Creamy Strawberry Protein Smoothie
2 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional)
3 cups liquid (milk or water) + add more if needed
Pour all ingredients into a blender. Process until smooth.
Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
If you’re feeling adventurous, pour your smoothie into a bowl and swirl with fresh fruits and superfood powders.
2 cups room temp canned coconut milk (shake the can well)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips* (see below for dairy free and sugar free options)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Cook your sweet potato, using your cooking preference. I baked mine in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour. You can even cook yours in the microwave.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in a double-boiler on the stovetop—set aside once melted. Alternatively, you can melt your chocolate chips in the microwave.
After the sweet potato is cooked through, allow it to cool for a few minutes, then peel off the skin. In a high-power blender (or food processor), add in the sweet potato and coconut milk. Blend for about 10 seconds.
Pour in melted chocolate chips. Blend again on high power for about one minute, until completely smooth. You don’t want any chunks.
Add in vanilla and salt. Blend for another 30 seconds.
Taste the mixture. If you want it sweeter, add in a little sweetener of choice. I thought it was the perfect balance of sweetness to creaminess, so I didn’t add any additional sweetener. Also, if you want it more bitter/chocolately, then you can add in a spoonful of cocoa powder. Keep in mind—if you add cocoa powder, you’ll want to add a touch of sweetener. (Remember the story: “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”? Yeah, it’s kind of like that if you choose to add the cocoa powder.)
Grab a freezer-friendly container and pour this ice cream mixture in there. Put on the lid and place in the freezer. Check it out and stir every 30 minutes (as the edges will freeze first)—this part is optional, but I found that it ended up freezing faster/more consistently this way.
After about 3-4 hours, it should be frozen and ready to devour!
Do you have a New Years Resolution to eat less sugar? I love creating dessert recipes that use no-to-little sugar. This is one of those! I’ve been making this ice cream and and fudge chunk dessert for about 5 years now, and it’s still one of my favorites.
Happy New Years Resolutions!

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM (NO PROCESSED SUGAR)
2-3 frozen bananas 1-2 scoops chocolate protein powder, about 1/2 cup (I love the Orgain brand) 2 teaspoons cocoa powder 1/4 milk of choice
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Stop periodically to stir.
Pour out of blender into a freezer-safe bowl. Freeze for about 20 minutes, until more firm.
When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and scoop into a bowl.
NOTE: Add in a spoonful of nut butter if you want it more creamy.

FUDGE BARS/CHUNKS (NO PROCESSED SUGAR / HIGH PROTEIN)
1 cup peanut butter or almond butter (I love the Adams brand) 1 cup peanut butter powder, mixed with a little water to make a paste (I use PB2 Foods) 3/4 cup honey or agave 2 1/2 cups oats (quick or rolled-quick makes them less chunky) 2-3 scoops protein powder, between 1/2 to 1 cup (I love the Orgain brand) 1/8 cup milk of choice or water (add more if needed)
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine nut butters and honey/agave and warm in microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir together well.
Pour nut butter/honey mixture into a large mixing bowl.
Add in the remaining ingredients and stir very well. Keep mixing until combined. (Add more milk or water, if a little dry.)
Pour into a 9×13 pan, lined with parchment paper on bottom.

Remove from freezer and cut into squares (cut some into cubes for chocolate ice cream dessert).
