For the longest time i thought strawberries were my absolute favourite berries, and maybe raspberries after that. Turns out, blueberries are pretty great too! 
I can't believe it took me so long to make some blueberry ice cream (i mean, i have made stracciatella, pina colada and toffee ice cream with cookie dough, for God's sake!), but now that i have discovered the beauty of raw vegan Blueberry Ice Cream, my world has gained another flavour. 

And it is SO GOOD. 

Seriously. It's good.

Just look at that colour!


Ingredients

4 large ripe bananas, frozen
1 to 1 1/2 cup ripe, frozen (or fresh) blueberries
1/2 tsp coconut blossom sugar (Gula Java) or preferred sweetener (optional)

also:
- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


Instructions 

If you're using fresh blueberries as i am, place them into the blender first. Pulse, then add your frozen banana pieces to the blender and blend until it forms a creamy, but slightly stiff mass. You can also add some sweetener whilst blending.

Transfer the ice cream into your favourite bowl and decorate with a sprinkle of berries and buckwheat. Then huddle up on your bed and relish your blueberry ice cream - it's all yours! :) 

If you use fresh blueberries instead of frozen ones, the colour won't be as strong and purple, but it will be equally delicious! And a bit further down you can admire my beautiful Blueberry Banana Swirl that i had for dinner yesterday! i think it was 5 or 6 frozen nanas + 1 cup bluebs. See below.
