Love at First Bite

OK ladies, you know how sometimes you just NEED chocolate and if the craving is not satisfied you get all Incredible Hulk like and start flipping over cars and busting through walls and whatnot. Well this chocolate vegan ice cream from Wanting Kneading is the SHIT, the SHIZNIT, the BOMB, the BOMBDIGGITY, RE-GOD-DAMN-DICULOUS and any other delicious descriptive word, or non word for that matter! Seriously go and make it right now! You will not be disappointed, that is until you reach the end of the storage container and start to pout because you are now out!

Ingredients
-2 really ripe bananas
-1 package silken tofu
-1 can coconut milk (lite coconut milk can be used as well but the Asian market didn’t have it)
-2/3 cup cocoa
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1 cup shredded coconut

Add ingredients together, mix and freeze. Seriously, it’s that easy. I used an immersion blender; you can go old school and mix it by hand using a potato masher as well. I imagine a regular blender would work as well but mine sux so I didn’t even try.

My only qualm is that it freezes really hard, not like regular ice cream that stays kind of soft. So I waited, somewhat impatiently, OK very impatiently, tapping my foot and giving the occasional stare down until I could scoop some out…maybe 20 minutes or so.

**Note to Starbucks dude – pictured below is an immersion blender.

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. I want it now. I am madly in love with coconut milk and I love its fat lol 🙂 gotta try this soon!

  2. Hey Danielle,I’m really glad you liked it!I found after a while, too, that it got pretty hard in the freezer-I think that’s something that tends to happen to hand/homemade icecream.I ate it about 3 hours after it had been in the freezer, with one forking/mashing session in between and it was soft enough to scoop. The trick is to jump on that shit asap! And then not stop until it’s all gone- the it has no chance of freezing up!

  3. Oooh! Can’t wait to try this one someday! I have THE SAME immersion blender! Mine came with this mini chopper and a whip–the whip has hardly EVER been used, but the mini chopper is great for pesto, garlic, and other small choppy-type things.
