Dairy-Free Unicorn Ice Cream: Magic You Can Feel Good About

Dairy-Free Unicorn Ice Cream: Magic You Can Feel Good AboutNice cream just got that much nicer with the addition of unicorn vibes. Indulge in the delicious taste and visual experience of ice cream without the dairy, refined sugar, or other processed add-ins. All it takes are a few frozen bananas and some fruit-based “coloring”. Here’s how to whip up this magical vegan treat with swirls of pink, purple, green, and yellow that you can eat any time of day without weighing yourself down (or getting that often inevitable dairy-induced stomach pain). Better yet: kids will LOVE it.

The unicorn craze has taken over lattes, smoothie bowls, and now ice cream! Despite its loud, festive colors, this ice cream is anything but offensive to the diet. The recipe is based in bananas, after all, and the colors come from none other than strawberries, blueberries, matcha, and mango!

Instructions

  1. Using a high-speed blender or food processor, blend the ingredients of each different colored nice cream separately, until smooth and fluffy.
