3 Ingredient Ice Cream Bites


If you're in the market for a cool, creamy treat~ but you're not looking to add any dairy or sweeteners into your life... look no further!  My ice cream bites are the perfect snack-sized answer to any dessert craving, and they're actually good for you.  

Using just three simple ingredients, I blend up this creamy-smooth concoction in the food processor then freeze small scoops of it until they reach a thick, luscious texture that melts in your mouth.  



The flavors pictured are "Raspberry Cream" and "Banana Cream", and they are absolutely amazing!  The raspberry came out a bit more tart, while the banana tasted just like banana cream pie.  Drool-worthy!


Don't let the name of these "ice cream bites" fool you though... I would still totally consider them a Whole30 compliant recipe!  Ice cream was the best way I could describe them, but the ingredients are seriously squeaky clean, with fewer ingredients & less sugar than an RXBAR or Larabar~ both of which are Whole30 compliant.


So whip up a batch, and enjoy these little bites as a morning snack, afternoon bite, or creamy dessert.  You can make either flavor I have listed here, or get creative with your own!  Enjoy, and let me know what you think!


Makes 6 bites.
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews*
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup fruit of choice (pictured are raspberry and banana)


Tools:

  • food processor
  • medium bowl
  • cookie dough scoop
  • parchment paper


Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until super smooth.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate until firm.
  2. Scoop out the mixture onto parchment paper, using a cookie dough scoop.  Freeze the bites for 1 hour, or until they feel solid to the touch.
  3. Let them sit out at room temperature for a couple of minutes, or eat them straight from the freezer~  just as you would ice cream!  


*Notes:

  • I use "cashew pieces" because they are less expensive & easier to blend.
  • Store remaining bites in the freezer, if you have any left!

Just made the banana last night and finally got to try them when I got home today and they are so amazing. And I may or may not have eaten one before I ate my dinner.
