Homemade Summers Dairy-free Smoothie Ice-cream

Vegan, Dairy-free, Wheat-free, Gluten-free, Egg-free, Yeast-free
Simple Homemade Refreshing & Juicy Strawberry & Banana Dairy-free Smoothie Ice-cream with toppings! :)Its coming up to Summer,which means the Sun and what better way to enjoy the Sun than with some seasonal, Cooling Ice-cream! This Ice-cream uses only 3 natural ingredients & its toppings. Its super quick and easy to make, and it tastes delightful! This Ice-cream uses no Dairy products, it only uses Soya Yogurt for its Creaminess!  Make a batch, because this Ice-cream will be gone before you know it! :P
This is definitley Summer in a Bowl.
Whats a better way to celebrate Summer than with a Bowl of Mouth-watering Natural Fruity Ice-cream. I decided to make a Strawberry cookie & Cream and Creamy Banana. :P



Strawberry Cookie & Cream 
-500grams of Frozen Strawberries
-2/3 Tablespoons  of Dairy-free yogurt (I chose Alpro Soya)
-1 Tablespoon of Agave
-Soya Cream or Coconut Cream
- Vegan Cookies( You can chose Oreos, but i used Lovemore O'Choco Cookies which are gluten, wheat & Dairy-free)

Banana Ice-cream-
-4 Frozen Bananas
-500gram of Dairy-free yogurt (I chose Alpro Soya)
-1 Tablespoon of Agave
-Sprinkling of Crushed Hazelnuts ( for protein, and an extra crunch)
-You could sprinkle some Berries or even some New Nakd Nibbles for an extra flavour burst!

Different toppings-
-Sprinkling of Desiccated Coconut or Crushed Hazelnuts
-Maca Powder ( Maca is great for Protein, also it tastes like the inside of a Malteaser) yumm..
-Cacao Powder or Cacao Nibs
-Mixed Linseed
-Fresh Fruit
-Grated Chocolate
-Seeds ( Poppy Seeds & Pumpkin Seeds) These would be especially nice on the Banana Dessert.

Let get Mixing.....

Side note- Place 500grams of Washed Strawberries &4 or 5 peeled Bananas in a plastic bag and put in the Freezer overnight! This will give the Dessert an Ice-cream taste & texture, take them out to early and the Icecream will be runny like Yogurt ( but it still tastes good)

Step 1- Lets start off with the Strawberry Dessert first. In a Food Processor or Blender, place the Frozen Strawberries, Yogurt and Agave Syrup ( to Sweeten) and very simply just  Whizz that up until the mix comes together like Ice-cream. 

Step 2- Pour into a Bowl or Sunday Glass and serve with a dusting of Crushed up Oreo's or O'choco Cookie, a swirl of Sqirty Soya cream and dollop some Fresh Strawberries on top aswell for that Summers feeling. 

Repeat for the Banana flavour. Serve up with a sprinkling of Crushed Hazelnuts. This is the fun part, as you can top these off with what ever you like! Its so easy, they taste incredible, i just want the Sun to come out so i can make some more :) 

If you like, give it a try yourself, and let me know how you get on, 
I hope you liked this recipe!
