Vegan biscoff and date plantain icecream

Hello friends!!

I had to bring you guys this awesoe recipe before it got too cold out. I know fallstarts in about 2 weeks but I thought I had to share one last delicious summery recipe.

But let’s be honest, you can make this anytime… Because there is no wrong or right time to have breakfast if you ask me.

A couple of week ago, I got plantains. I often like to purchase different fruits and veggies to challenge myself and try and learn as I go. They were yellow with dark spots on them. They were fairly ripe too, so when I opened them, they looked pretty much like a banana on steroids with an orange-y hue.

I thought to myself why not get inspired by the nice creams everyone is talking about and do something different but also similar with the plantains that I had at home.

How to make the Vegan Biscoff and Date Plantain Ice Cream ?

This recipe is extremely simple again!

First, line a 6-inch round baking pan with wax paper and set aside. Peel the plantains and slice them then pop them in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until completely frozen.

While the plantains are in the freezer, remove the date’s pits and slice them in long strips and then turn the strips side ways and cut across them to make the perfect chopped date chunks.

When the plantains are frozen, place them in the food processor add in the coconut cream and blend until it has reached that creamy ice cream texture.

Transfer the ice cream to the lined baking pan, making sure to add in some biscoff cookie pieces and chopped dates in there then topping it off with the rest of the plantain ice cream. Smooth the top and add in some more cookie and date chunks.

You can enjoy this right away or pop it back in the freezer for a tab bit longer to get it to solidify a bit more.
