Update + Healthy Banana Split Ice Cream Waffle

14 January

HI THERE! :) It has been quite a while since visiting my blog. I have been heavily based on instagram and school that I haven't had much time tending to this blog. I'm attacking the goals i've set this year to hopefully expand this thing that I have going on! I'm learning about myself everyday while having instagram and friends to help guide me to become the person I strive to be. So, I've decided that this blog will only be where I post recipes, while I can be more personal and open on new projects i'm working on that will also incorporate recipes, blogging, and my other passions in life. I'm so excited this year and so grateful to be able to share it on social media for the world to see! :) I'm also on tumblr, twitter, and facebook: links are at the left corner of my blog.




ALRIGHTY, let's get to the banana split ice cream waffle you have all probably came here for (BECAUSE ITS SUPER DELICIOUS):


As I've stated on instagram, the waffle recipe is not mine. The blogger famous Dana (and John) from The Minimalist Baker have created a wonderful, fool-proof, healthy, gluten free recipe that I have stuck to after trying multiple failed waffle recipes throughout pinterest (main inspo here y'all). I find this recipe one to be very versatile given that it is plant based! I changed a few things in the recipe but I totally recommend you check her recipe out!!

I'm trying to post more of "steps" pictures so that it would me more clear for you to understand even though you probably won't need it for this recipe. But enjoy anyway!






THE FINAL PRODUCT: Healthy Raspberry Caramel Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce on top of a perfect gluten free waffle.

This can be easily made into a waffle sandwich, too!



Healthy Raspberry Caramel Banana Ice Cream Waffle

Serving: 5-6
Time: 30-40 minutes

Date Caramel (for ice cream)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates
  • 3 tbsp water to start (may need more)
  • dash of sea salt (or himalayan salt)
Directions: In a blender or food processor, add dates, salt, and water and blend until smooth. Add water by a tablespoon if needed. That's it!


Raspberry Caramel Banana Ice Cream (Vegan)

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • splash of non dairy milk (may add more if needed)
  • 2 tbsp date caramel (or as much as you'd prefer)
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • optional: 3 scoops of cultured coconut yogurt (there's a vegan on at Trader Joe's)
Directions: In a food processor, add in bananas, coconut yogurt and a splash of non dairy milk. Blend until you get a ice cream consistency. In the process, it should clump up and look think and grainy and that's completely fine. Once fully blended, carefully fold in the date caramel and raspberries. Place into a freezer safe container until completely frozen.

*Healthy, Gluten Free Oat Waffles (Vegan)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup non dairy milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or olive oil
  • scant 1/4 cup of agave or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour (just blended oats)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • big pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
Directions:
  1. Combine non dairy milk and apple cider vinegar in a cup or bowl and let set for a few minutes to activate(subbing buttermilk). Add coconut oil, maple syrup and whisk until fully combined. Set aside.
  2. Add dry ingredients together in another bowl, then add add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. The consistency should be from barely thick to thick and hard to stir.
  3. Set waffle iron and cook from medium to high or depending how you like your waffles. 
DONT FORGET: chop up some bananas for a full treat!

Toppings


  • raw pepitas, chopped
  • fresh raspberries
  • raw chocolate sauce (I used Emmy Organics Raw Chocolate Sauce)
  • Culture coconut yogurt (I used Trader Joe's Vanilla Coconut Yogurt)
  • banana


HOW TO ASSEMBLE:
  1. Once your waffle is not too hot, place on parchment paper or plate and drizzle the cultured coconut yogurt on top of the waffle.
  2. Place sliced banana.
  3. Scoop 1-2 balls of ice cream on top.
  4. Drizzle chocolate sauce and top with raspberries and pepitas

BAM. You are now a guru of waffle making. ;)


Have a nice day folks and feel free to email me at thefluffyvegan@yahoo.com for any questions. I also answer on instagram when I can, but my email is more promising.
