Hello lovelies! So as I mentioned in last week's 'Tea and Things' post, this week I have decided to go vegan for the week. I'll be sure to do a full post updating you all but as of now, I'm actually loving it! I can't boast that I suddenly have amazing skin or lost a ridiculous amount of weight from doing it, but my body definitely feels so much better both mentally and physically. Almost 'cleaner' if that makes any sense?! Anyway, because of it, this week I've been experimenting a ton this week with different recipes and whilst crawling through pinterest for recipes, I discovered how to make these super healthy vegan 'ice-cream' style bowls using literally just frozen fruit! When blended, frozen bananas (alongside whatever other ingredients you choose) turn into this amazing ice-cream consistency which as you can imagine tastes delicious and got it's nickname 'nice-cream' because it really is so healthy and doesn't contain any dairy or sugar. It's become my new favourite breakfast food and ahh I can't wait to share it with you. I made two versions of these bowls, after you guys voted on my Twitter poll which one's you'd like me to make, and so I ended up doing this Raw Dark-Chocolate Orange bowl and a Blueberry and Coconut one. Both taste amazing, but let me know in the comments what your favourite one is? I think I'd have to lean towards the Chocolate one because I'm all for a little something sweet but let me know what yours is!
The method for this recipe is super simple, basically 'blend all of it up' and serve with your favourite toppings!
01. Freeze the sliced banana overnight along with the blueberries depending on which flavour bowl you are making.
02. Then, add the frozen banana, almond milk, chia seeds, and cacao powder / blueberries and blend in a food processor until it has a thick ice-cream style consistency.
03. Now, spoon into a bowl and get all tumblr and creative with your toppings if you like! For the chocolate-orange bowl, I topped it with chia seeds, orange segments and more cacao powder; and for the blueberry one I went for a sprinkle of coconut, banana and more blueberries but it's entirely up to you.
