Paleo Neapolitan Ice Cream Smoothie – a healthy and refreshing layering of strawberries, banana and cocoa.
Who remembers Neapolitan Ice Cream? I feel like I have to ask because I haven’t had it in yonks! I remember, I never really liked it much because the ice cream always tasted cheap. Maybe that’s because my parents bought the cheap, everyday value version lol!
I actually didn’t intend on making this, I was trying to make something with cashew butter. However, lately, I’ve been buying a lot of Strawberry and Banana frozen fruit mixes from Tesco and they were basically just sitting there. So, I decided to have some fun!
I guess, you can tell by the colours in the picture that this was the idea, right?
This Paleo Neapolitan Ice Cream Smoothie works splendid as a summer treat. It tastes so good and so refreshing – 10x better than the actual thing! Great for those who don’t agree with dairy much. Now, you don’t even need to worry, taste and health are both CHECKED!
If you want to make this a vegan version, simply use dates instead of honey to sweeten the chocolate layer. This will also work perfectly in a food processor, or a high powered blender – however, if you just have a regular ol’ blender, don’t worry! I’ve made some reservations for ya!
Paleo Neapolitan Ice Cream Smoothie - a chocolate, banana and strawberry layered smoothie ice cream using cacao powder, frozen bananas and frozen strawberries!
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp honey (or a couple dates if vegan)
- 1 slices frozen banana (already cut)
- 1/4 cup milk*
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup + 2tbsp milk
Add your layers to a blender*.
Blend each layer separately. Once a layer has been processed, place it in a container in the freezer to ensure it doesn't melt.
Once your strawberry layer is done, construct your neapolitan ice cream smoothie
Serve and enjoy immediately.
*You can use any kind of milk you want! Preferable unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or a good hemp milk!
*If using a high powered blender or food processor, you may not need as much milk to process the fruit. Start off with a splash of milk and process. Add more milk as needed but 1/4 cup is adequate.
