A delicious, non-dairy nice cream made with a mix of cherries and chocolate chunks blended with bananas. This is my vegan version of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. It’s an easy no-churn ice cream or soft serve ready in minutes!
Place banana chunks, 1 cup cherries, and a splash of milk into blender/food processor and blend until just combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add another splash of milk to help the mixture move (especially if using a blender).
Add in chocolate and remaining 1/2 cup cherries, pulse until just combined.
Serve immediately as a soft serve or freeze for later and serve as hard ice cream. To freeze, place the ice cream into a sealed container and freeze for at least six hours. It will last for up to 2 months. Before serving, let sit at room temp for a few minutes, scoop and serve.
Makes about 2 cups.
Serves 4 small portions or 2 generously.
If using a food processor, you can get away without using non-dairy milk.
It helps to freeze your serving bowl beforehand if possible. It will keep your soft serve chilled a bit longer.
If you don’t want any chocolate chunks, try adding 1 heaping teaspoon of raw or dark cocoa powder instead.
