The Challenge: Klondike Bars
***You need 5 frozen bananas for this dish. I hate when dishes ask for something that takes a day to freeze, so upfront you'll need this. Can buy them at the store or buy fresh and freeze overnight.***
Ever had a Klondike bar? Its pretty frikin fantastic! Ice cream covered in a layer of chocolate wrapped in foil. It is the perfect summer treat with the kids, but there's one tiny issue for us vegans.
It ain't vegan.
So, let's make a vegan version! For this, we use a dairy-free recipe for ice cream. I turned this up a notch with a peanut butter swirled ice cream. The ice cream is so simple. Frozen bananas, vanilla, peanut butter, and dairy-free milk. The ice cream you can make in 5 minutes in a blender and eat right away or refreeze!
From there, we dunk it into melted dark chocolate with coconut oil. We finish it off with a peanut drizzle for that extra yum! You'll love this recipe I SWEAR.
I don't even really like sweets personally, but the peanut butter drizzle and addition to the ice cream gives it that salty extra flavor to cut the sweetness.
The recipe is not difficult by any means, but it takes some time to wait for things to freeze. It is the perfect low-effort recipe to do on a Sunday afternoon while doing some work around the house/apartment.
Best part ... its ten ingredients! Won't break the bank and its just a simple, easy, delicious recipe.
