I’ve been craving delicious sweet treats like crazy since moving to Cape town, maybe its the stress, but I just want all the candy! I know that’s not a good idea for me and I try to stay reasonably far away from sugar as possible or keep it to a minimum, I’m actually insanely good at moderation and not being tempted by things. I’ve got some serious willpower! I’ve been coming up with healthy treats that you wont even notice has no sugar – to just a bit of sugar in! This banana ice cream is amazing! creamy, dreamy with that amazing cookies and cream ice cream flavour that so many of us love. I used an oreo, but feel free to use any cookie you have around.
This is so much better for your waistline and your health than normal ice cream, a perfect serving size for one or you can share with your loved one. I shared this with Carl with no problem, if that’s not love!
COOKIES AND CREAM VEGAN ICE CREAM – Serves 1

Place the bananas, vanilla milk and oreo in a blender. Blend until smooth and the consistency of soft serve. You might have to stop to scrape the sides down. Garnish with a crushed oreo.
