Instructions
Vegan Banana Split Ice Cream
  1. Refrigerate the bananas, strawberries and coconut milk for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Open the cans of coconut milk and separate the hardened coconut cream from the milk. Add all of the coconut milk, sugar, bananas, half of the chocolate chips, pecans, strawberries to a food processor.
  3. Pour mix into a container and chill for a minimum of 4 hours. (I like to store my ice cream mix directly in the ice cream machine metal bowl.)
  4. When the ice cream mix is sufficiently chilled, add to ice cream machine and churn for a minimum of 30-45 minutes or until the ice cream is the desired consistency. Add the chopped chocolate the last 2 minutes of churning. (If ice cream is still soft-serve can freeze for 2 hours before serving.)
Strawberry Sauce
  1. While the ice cream is churning prep for the strawberry sauce and slice the strawberries. Add sugar to a small bow and strawberries. Continue stirring them until the sugar dissolves completely leaving a delicious strawberry syrup and refrigerate.
Chocolate Syrup
  1. For the chocolate syrup, heat the coconut milk and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low to medium heat. Add the chocolate, stirring until it’s melted and smooth. Promptly remove from heat when all of the chocolate is melted and cool to room temperature.
Whipped Chocolate Coconut Cream Topping
  1. Make sure the coconut milk has been refrigerated for 4 hours or overnight. Flip the cans of coconut milk over and cut open the cans using a can opener. Scoop out only the dense coconut cream and set aside the remaining liquid.
  2. Combine coconut cream, 2-3 tbsp chocolate syrup and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat on high 3-5 minutes keeping an eye on the cream, until it becomes fluffy and light. Then whip the vanilla extract into coconut cream for 1 minute
  3. Check to see that the ice cream is the right texture. Scoop out ice cream and drizzle chocolate sauce or strawberries and top with Chocolate Coconut Cream!
