Raw Vegan Persimmon Ice Cream is creamy, delicious, and only takes five minutes to make. It’s a seasonal spin on “Nice Cream” which is vegan ice cream made from frozen bananas. When I first heard about Nice Cream, I was intrigued. Raw, vegan, and easy as hell to make? Count me in. For one reason or another, I didn’t attempt to make it for a full two years. I am officially kicking myself for missing out on all the goodness for so long. Luckily, you don’t have to make the same mistake I did. Seriously! Try this recipe as soon as possible. All you need is a freezer and a food processor. It’s. So. Easy.
- 4 frozen bananas, chopped
- 1 ripe persimmon, chopped
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon coconut cream (optional, but recommended)
- Place all items in a large food processor or high speed blender. Mix until smooth and creamy.
- Pour the vegan ice cream into a bowl and top with anything you like! Strawberries, extra persimmon slices, blueberries, blackberries, shredded coconut, pineapple, the possibilities are endless!
- The persimmon ice cream will be the consistency of soft serve. If you prefer a firmer bowl of goodness, place it in the freezer for an hour or two, then scoop it out like regular ice cream. Enjoy!
