3 HomeMade Vegan Ice Cream Recipes for Omnivores!!

This past weekend was my mother's birthday gathering with some of her closest friends. The whole group were omnivores, so I decided to try some vegan ice cream recipes to see how they hold up to an omnivorous palate. Watch the video if you want to see the making action in a totally non-expertly filmed manner, and you can find the recipes below!

I did a three-course dessert, since they're healthy after all, might as well do three!

As far as hardware, I use a Yonanas machine, but you can use a good blender like a a Vitamix, Blendtec, or a Champion juicer.

The directions are written for a Yonanas machine but for blender, simply add all ingredients and blend progressively faster (slowly) but don't crank fully: You want an ice cream consistency, not a smoothie.


[1] Vegan Affogato 


2 frozen ripe bananas

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 shot of espresso or coffee

chocolate sauce (optional, I used Co-Op's Microcreamery)



Insert 1⁄2 frozen banana

Add 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon into chute

Insert remaining frozen bananas

Stir in bowl to combine

Scoop into glass or bowl

Optional: Drizzle your favorite chocolate sauce on top of Yonanas.

Pour a shot of espresso or coffee over top

Well the omnivores seemed to enjoy the triple course, but the apple walnut was the overwhelming winner! Ice cream doesn’t have to come at the expense of your health or others’ lives. enjoy your dessert double guilt-free! [tweet this]
