Wedding Guests - The Dainty Squid

Kaylah is one of my absolute favourite people and I am so happy to have her as a Wedding Guest today. Ivan and I had the pleasure of meeting Kaylah and Kevin back in May and we are so excited to see them again in July! And yes, Kaylah and Kevin are as awesome as you think they are...maybe even more so!

Hi Everyone! I'm Kaylah and I blog over at The Dainty Squid. I'm so excited Elycia (my real life friend, I will brag about this until the cows come home!) asked me to do a guest post while she's busy doing wedding things!

Today I'm going to be sharing with you one of my new favorite recipes that is absolutely perfect for this gorgeous summer weather! Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate (the holy trifecta of treats!) Vegan Ice Cream. It's one of the easiest recipes you could ever make, you only need 5 ingredients, a blender and your freezer!
Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream!
You'll need:
2 bananas* (of average size)
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 generous tablespoons peanut butter
5 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons soy milk

Put all ingredients in the blender and mix until they become a smoothie like texture. Pour into a plastic container with lid and place in freezer. Check on and stir hourly until it becomes the perfect texture, which is completely at your discretion. You can eat it like a milkshake after about 2 hours, devour it like ice cream after 5 or 6 hours or just drink it straight out of the blender!

*a note about bananas - yellow bananas with few to no spots are preferable, spotty bananas work just as well!



This looks so amazing and I am so anxious to make some! Thank you so much Kaylah, you are the best!



  1. This looks so delicious! I think I'm going to go buy some bananas ASAP.

  2. Totally trying this at some point this weekend!
    You both rock.

  3. YUM!! chocolate and banana are two of my favorite combos. I love how easy this recipe is!

  4. Whoooooa I'm in love with this recipe. I'll probably try it with almond milk or coconut milk :o)

  5. Wow, yes, must try :) Thanks so much for sharing this!

  6. Ohhhh this sounds DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing. :D

  7. Yum yum yum!

    Sounds awesome!

    Will have to try it out! :)

  8. Yum this sounds great, except... I'm allergic to bananas! Anything I can substitute with?

  9. Simple and delicious make me happy!

  10. Wow. That really is super easy. What a great summer treat!

  11. I just made this! But I must say, you forgot a pretty important step. 'Lick the blender completely clean'! I only had chocolate soy milk, but that worked out great. It's in the freezer now, I love mixing it because then I get to lick the spoon hahaha

  12. soooo yummy!!! I made a batch...had a little taste (like cbryan by little taste I mean licked my food processor clean!)...and stuck it in the freezer. Just couldn't wait for it to freeze though so I ended up scooping out a couple spoonfuls before it finished freezing :)

    ps...i threw in some dark chocolate chunks too...YUM!

  13. I'm getting up from the computer to make this RIGHT NOW. I know I'll be in need of a cold treat this evening. Thank you! MMM

  14. Would this recipe work using the plastic bag method of making ice cream?

  15. I'm making this right now ... Can nutella be used instead of peanut butter ?
