The Simple, Guilt-Free, 3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

 

Namaste, and Happy Monday! Here at Funky Yoga we try to help all yogis understand that asanas [poses] are only one of the steps of the 8 of the ashtanga system enlightenment. Although they are important, asanas are not the only way to practice yoga.

In fact, the first layer of yoga is Yama, which is made of 5 codes of ethics and control. The first of these ethics is Ahimsa, or non-violence. This is why yogis make a daily effort to lead a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle; their eating habits do not contribute to violence towards animals.

Having that said, it has been a daily struggle for me personally to accept that ice cream is not vegan and does contribute to the harm of cows. I understand that there is almond milk ice cream, but it is expensive and does have preservatives that I would rather not put in my body.

Alas, I found a solution, and its extremely simple, nutrient-rich, and most importantly, tasty!

 

 

 Ingredients:

  • 1 heavy tablespoon of cacao [NOT cocoa!] poweder
  • 1/3 cup of almond milk
  • 2 frozen, brown bananas 
    • *Important* Make sure to peel the bananas before freezing!

Now just throw them in either a food processor or high speed blender, and voila!

Vegan Ice Cream!

Here's some nutritional facts to further convince you if you aren't already

  • 32 mg of Magnesium per banana + 27 mg in the cacao powder = 91 mg/Magnesium
  • 422 mg of Potassium per banana = 844 mg of Potassium
  • 14 grams of natural, unprocessed sugar per banana = 28 grams of unrefined sugar
  • 18% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C just from the cacao!

Power to the yogis! Thank you for reading, and wherever you are, practice! :)
