It’s hard to believe January is almost over. Is time flying by or is it just me?
I know it’s still winter but who can resist a great ice cream – especially when it’s so easy to put together! This is for us who don’t have an ice cream maker or are just too lazy to use one. All you need to do is blend and freeze.
If you follow this blog you know that I love using bananas as a base for my ice creams. Like this Almond Chunky Monkey Ice Cream or this Banana Cherry Garcia Soft Serve. Bananas are inexpensive and when fully ripe are as sweet as can be. And they can be dressed up many ways like this Butter Maple Pecan Ice Cream.
Butter Pecan Maple Ice Cream
I used to love butter pecan ice cream and now can still enjoy it in a way that is beneficial to myself and tastes great without using any dairy produces. It’s a win for me and the animals – my favorite kind!
All you need is a few bananas, almond butter, tahini, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and pecans. Blend them together, let it freeze a few hours and voila, you have yourself a most deliciously, decadent and healthy raw, vegan ice cream.
I hope you find it as good as I do!Print
BUTTER MAPLE PECAN ICE CREAM
Rich, decadent butter maple pecan ice cream made with wholesome plant-based ingredients!
- Prep Time: 6 hours

- Cuisine: Vegan
Place ingredients, except for the pecans, in food processor/high speed blender and process, scraping down the sides as needed, until creamy and combined. Taste for sweetness, adding more maple syrup if needed. Stir in pecans. Place in air tight container and keep in the freezer for at least 6 hours to harden. Let sit for about 10 minutes or so to soften before scooping into serving bowls.
Makes about 4 cups.
If using frozen bananas, you can serve right away as it will be a soft serve ice cream. Or store in freezer to harden completely as above.
As with any of my recipes, adjust flavors to your own taste…I have made this using 1/4 cup almond butter along with just a few tablespoons of maple syrup and tahini with great success. I have also used less pecans. So feel to play around with the ingredient amounts.
