easy non-dairy, vegan chocolate ice cream with almond milk via Lauren KelpHappy almost weekend, party people! Are you doing anything fun to celebrate? My sweet sister is celebrating her birthday this weekend so it was only appropriate that I, the best big sister, come up with a special recipe to celebrate her with!
I have been trying to replace typically non-healthy foods with a healthier alternative & we are on a massive vegan ice cream kick right now. This ice cream only calls for 3 (THREE!) ingredients, is super easy, and tastes like a rich, double chocolate dream. Best part? It’s totally customizable. Want to add in some peanut butter? Great! How about chopped nuts? Perfect!
Just five minutes in the kitchen, a few hours in the freezer, and you’ve got yourself a healthy treat that you won’t even realize isn’t bad for you…it’s that good!

It’s amazing how a few frozen bananas, some Silk Almondmilk, and a little bit of cocoa powder can quickly turn into the best dessert around. It’s absolutely perfect for weekends, dinner parties, or something to make on Sunday for throughout the week when your will power tends to slip.

We have a back-up supply on hand all the time & the flavor options are endless! Run to the store & whip up a batch and let us know what you think. Can’t wait to hear 🙂
