Vegan banana ice cream

With only 5 ingredients and no need to churn this ice cream is super quick and easy to make and simply divine.

If you always wanted to make your own delicious ice cream but didn’t have an ice cream maker or thought it’s a complicated and laborious process then this recipe is perfect for you! Only 5 ingredients and super quick to make yourself, no chef skills required. This is one of my favourites as the flavours work together so well.


  • 1/2 can of coconut milk
  • 7 Medjool dates
  • 2 small bananas
  • juice of 1/2 a lime (maybe a bit more, do a taste test)
  • 125ml of any plant milk (e.g. soy milk)

Blend the bananas with the plant milk, lime juice and dates until you get a smooth texture. Pour it into a bowl and add 1/2 a can of coconut milk and combine well. Transfer the mixture into a shallow tupperware dish. Don't fill it up too high (only up to 3cm from the bottom) as it will make it harder to get the ice cream out of the dish. You might have to use two tupperware dishes. Freeze for at least 5 hours. When you take it out of the freezer and it's too hard to be scooped out give it a quick 30 seconds in the microwave to defrost it a bit - make sure you don't overdo it as you will otherwise end up with a banana smoothie. Serve with chocolate sprinkling or a chocolate mesh (find the recipe here). Enjoy!

And if you don't know what to do with the other 1/2 tin of coconut milk then why not try this soba noodle stir fry recipe. Super easy and delicous.

Easy vegan mille feuille with home-made custard

I remember having mille feuille as a kid and absolutely loving it. This was my first attempt ever at making one and it turned out so well and of course it's egg-free and dairy-free. For me it was important to keep the recipe as easy and accessibly as possible. It's that easy you can get all ingredients in your supermarket as well which is even better. And the home-made custard tasted even better than I could've imagined, better than the store bought one!

This is a traditional cake we make in Austria in summer and it's super delicious. I changed it slightly to make it vegan and kept it super simple. No weird ingredients and you can get everything in your local supermarket

Vegan strawberry cheese cake - gluten-free and high in protein -

Vegan strawberry cheese cake - gluten-free and high in protein

Since it's strawberry season I wanted to make a vegan strawberry cheese cake. But I also wanted to make sure it's not just delicious but also high in protein, so I added silken tofu to it and it worked so well. It has all the freshness of a cheese cake with added tofu goodness. And as always I kept the recipe as easy as possible.
