Vegan Candy Cane {n}Ice-Cream

You guys! Christmas is only 2 days away. I'm dyyyyyyyiiiiiinnnnngggg! Definitely my favorite holiday. It used to be the Fourth of July, but since having little babes, it's all about seeing their big eyes take in the beauty of the Christmas lights, their little legs boppin' to the Christmas jams and their sweet faces light up on Christmas day. It's the most magical thing in the whole entire world. Truly amazing. Oh and I almost forgot... 'tis the season for treats too! Boy do the littles love that part... maybe a little too much. Of course, I let them indulge in cookies and school parties and hot chocolate galore, but I also like to keep the balance, ya know? So, that's where I feed them ice-cream for breakfast. Say what?! It's true... creamy, sweet and completely indulgent. Oh and super healthy too. No, it's not a conundrum. It's totally possible and here's how I do it...

Frozen bananas! Seriously my friends, if you have not frozen your {peeled and chopped} bananas and put them in the blender or food processor with a little vanilla then YOU HAVE NOT LIVED. It's even better than the real thing. And if you don't like bananas, I don't know if we can be friends. Just kidding, that just means more bananas for me! ;) But, try it anyway, even if you hate bananas. If you do not like it... surprise! Frozen mangoes whip up into a completely satisfying sherbet. True story. 

From your base of frozen bananas, there can be so many combinations. So, add some holiday fun into the mix.
