Just Kavalicious: Vegan Kava Banana Nice Cream

April 18 , 2019 by: Jessica Catalano Blog

You scream, I scream, we all scream, for Vegan Kava Banana Nice Cream! A wonderfully delicious and healthy dairy free option – this creamy dessert is sure to please even the most die hard ice cream lover. A smooth blend of frozen bananas, full-fat coconut milk, vanilla, sunflower seed butter, and kava powder – this recipe is easier than any traditional ice cream could dream of being.

Fu’u kava powder is used in this recipe as it possesses a complex coconut and roasted tree nut like flavor. This strain also is not as bitter as some other varieties making it the perfect addition to any banana nice cream recipe. Fu’u brings about a social euphoria that is akin to a very good social sativa. It inspires conversation, good mood, light hardheartedness, and creativity. Really, the perfect night cap after a dinner with friends on the weekend!

The roasted coconut and tree nut flavor profiles of this strain marry harmoniously with the tropical flavor of the bananas and creamy coconut milk. The addition of the sunflower seed butter adds a depth and buttery mouthfeel to the banana nice cream. A combination that might have you replacing dairy ice cream really soon! Enjoy with your friends and loved ones for an ultra decadent treat without all the guilt!

Mise en place:

  • 5 frozen organic bananas
  • 3 tbs sunflower seed butter or another nut butter of your choice
  • 1 cup canned full-fat coconut milk

Method 1:

  1. Break up the bananas and add them to a high powered blender. Add the sunflower seed butter, coconut milk, vanilla extract, kava, and xanthan gum.
  2. Blend until the mixture becomes a creamy soft serve. You can add more coconut milk if you want to thin the consistency or add less to make it thicker.

*For beginners, I recommend 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon for this batch of Vegan Kava Banana Ice Cream. You can increase it as you get used to the medicinal effects of the kava. You can add up to 1 tablespoon if you want a stronger effect.
