    Vegan Choco-Vanilla Bomb

    We all scream for ice cream, or at least something with an icy, creamy texture like this dessert. And while a perfect fit with the vegan lifestyle, this treat is so tasty that even non-vegans will happily dig in.

    4 frozen bananas

    1/3 cup unsweetened almond or other plant-based milk, plus an extra splash, if needed

    2 fresh dates, pitted

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    2–3 tbsp raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

    2 tbsp peanut or other nut butter, plus extra for serving

    Pinch sea salt

    Fresh berries, for serving

    1. Combine the bananas, 1/3 cup almond milk, dates and vanilla extract in a blender and blend, scraping down the sides of the blender jar as necessary, until a smooth texture forms. Transfer half of the mixture to a bowl and set aside.
    2. Add the cacao or cocoa powder, peanut butter and salt to the remaining mixture and blend , adding a splash of almond milk, if needed, to create a smooth texture.
    3. Pour the vanilla and chocolate mixtures alternately into bowls and serve with some extra peanut butter and fresh berries.

      Yields 2 servings
