Yep…. vegan Neapolitan ice cream is a thing. And, even better- it’s super easy to make at home!
I stumbled on this recipe when I was trying to mix up a strawberry ice cream dupe. When I added cacao, I was thinking more chocolate covered strawberry meets strawberry sorbet. But when I gave it to my boyfriend to try and he said “This tastes like old school Breyer’s Neapolitan ice cream!” I remember that ice cream from when I was a kid and wasn’t mad at that comment.
If you were ever a lover of Breyer’s Neapolitan, I have a feeling you are going to like this recipe. It’s simple, easy and is an awesome plant-based ice cream option.
Vegan Neapolitan Ice Cream
- 1 cup oat milk (you can sub other plant milks, but I recommend oat- it adds to the creaminess)
- 1.5 cups frozen organic strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 handful of ice
- dash of salt (helps to bring out the sweetness)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender. Serves 1 happy person. ????
