3 Ingredient Vegan Ice Cream

IMG_7283

One week to go.  Still totally excited.

I went to my usual Saturday morning group ride this morning and chatted with a guy who did the long course at Wildflower last year.  I asked (like I ask everyone who has done that race) how bad Nasty Grade is.  Like a few others, he said if I can ride up Diablo, I will be totally fine. Thank god I checked that off the list last weekend.

My total workout this morning was a 1:50 ride (31 miles) and s 20 minute run (2.4 miles).  6 months ago that would have felt like a real workout, but today I feel like I’be barely done anything.  I tested out my new race shorts and they were awesome for the bike and run.  I’m feeling ready to go!

I’ve been sort of wading into veganism, just testing the waters.  We haven’t had cheese in the house in quite awhile and I honestly don’t miss it.  I think Ellie does, but she gets plenty of it at daycare, so she’ll live (and I’m sure we’ll be buying it for her again one of these days).  I was doing great all week, but then a sixth grader brought me a cupcake yesterday (funfetti!) and I was halfway through it before I realized that I was sort of unofficially trying to avoid milk/dairy products.  Oops.

I made this for dessert last night and it kind of reminds me of a Wendy’s Frosty (although I haven’t had one in almost 2 years so I could be way off).   I used carob because it’s slightly sweet on its own, but if you’d rather use cocoa powder, I’d recommend using a few extra dates to sweeten it.  It’s super rich and creamy, but doesn’t have an overwhelming coconut flavor.  It’s also kind of dangerous because I pretty much always have all three ingredients in my pantry!

    Vegan “ice cream” that is easy to make and not banana based, yay!!
    I feel you on the “testing the water” of veganism. I did just that from Dec-Jan, was consciously quite vegan from Jan-March I guess and since then I’ve been eating like 95% vegan but just not being a stickler. Still not buying cheese or ice cream, buying almond milk (I like it better anyway!), etc. Overall I am still forcing myself to eat way better than I did beforehand, so mission accomplished 🙂

    Keep up the great work!
