The “melted ice cream” is simply just a blended mix of frozen and fresh bananas – I know, I know, it’s been done before and if you don’t like bananas, that’s an issue… but it’s soooo good! It’s all creamy and sweet and gooey… *fans herself*

The chocolate sauce beats all chocolate sauces out there. It tastes like melted dark chocolate, has the texture of melted dark chocolate… only it’s not melted dark chocolate. It’s just cocoa powder with maple syrup and hot water. That’s it. Doesn’t sound appetising? Give it a try. Seriously. You’re missing out.

The “cookie dough” is another component of this recipe that tastes-like-X-but-actually-isn’t-X. It’s just coarsely blended softened dates and peanuts (you can also go with almonds). The result is a sticky, buttery, occasionally crunchy mess, that tastes like caramel cookie dough and which you could easily eat with a spoon. But do refrain, for if it tastes amazing on its own, it reaches WHOA WOW THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE THING levels when combined with the melted ice cream smoothie and chocolate sauce.


In the end, this melted ice cream smoothie bowl is a healthy vegan paleo dessert that you could easily eat for breakfast (hell yea) – all the while knowing that it’s actually a fairly balanced, wholesome meal. And let’s be real, people, the luscious melted ice cream mixed with the remnants of the chocolate sauce at the bottom of a sundae is the best part, anyway.

  1. Hey Kat! Mary here.

    What an awesome way to cool down on a seriously hot day in central New York. After reading through the ingredients and realizing I had them all, I whipped this up so quickly.

    The peanut/date mixture was AMAZING and differentiated the recipe y adding a cool texture. I noticed the chocolate syrup was quite runny, but maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be. Next time, I’ll add less water or more maple syrup.

    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Mary!

      I’m really glad to hear you liked the smoothie bowl – it’s quite a decadent way too cool down, isn’t it? 😉
      The consistency of the chocolate syrup very much depends on the cocoa powder you use… I would add the water little by little, until you reach the desired consistency 🙂
