This raw vegan dessert will directly transport you to heaven!
This is why I called it ice cream dream. It consists of perfectly ripe bananas, gooey dates and juicy pomegranate combined with raw delicious vanilla bean and a little raw vegan homemade chocolate. I used these super healthy ingredients to create a low fat, sweet and nutritious version of classic vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and sprinkles. But here you even get pom sprinkles- doesn't that sound too good to be true? 

This treat is perfect for a beautiful harvest afternoon and will be loved by all your non-vegan friends as well, because it is simply heavenly.
You could also layer the vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce to create a perfect holiday dessert. Just look at these colors. And the super creamy texture. And the sweetness. Just imagine what it tastes like when the pomegranate explodes in your mouth to merge with the vanilla ice cream and caramel. Multiply that by 1000. Now you got the right idee of what this ice cream dream tastes like.
I have no more words for this deliciousness :)


Vanilla ice cream
3-4 frozen bananas
1/2 vanilla bean
1 t sweetener of your choice, I used agave nectar

Caramel sauce
1/2 cup of pitted dates
1/3 cup of water or as needed
1/4 vanilla bean

Pomegranate seeds and raw vegan chocolate
If you want to make the chocolate by yourself, mix 1 cup of melted coconut oil with 1/4-1/3 raw cacao, 1 t sweetener of your choice and vanilla to taste (yields about 1 cup of chocolate sprinkles or 1 chocolate bar).

For the vanilla icre cream, blend your frozen bananas with the vanilla and sweetener until creamy.
For the caramel sauce, blend dates with water and vanilla. Add water to desired consistency.
Spoon your ice cream into your favorite bowl, layer with caramel sauce and sprinkle with pomegrante seeds and raw chocolate.
