The more you eat ice cream, the healthier you will become. Sounds too good to be true, except it actually is!

THIS ice cream is as yummy as conventional ice cream but by far healthier due to its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory properties and lack of trans fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and lower in calories, which is a big plus. I have seen many vegan “nice cream” recipes online though, there isn’t a recipe containing pine nuts that are so flavorful, nutty, creamy, and antioxidant-rich and sesame seeds that add a subtle crunchy texture to it.

The ratio of the ingredients is not fixed, so you can play with them and see how it goes. That being said, if there is one thing to note, you need to put in a lot of pine nuts for a thick consistency and a fatty flavor which resembles that of dairy ice cream. Also make sure you use frozen fruits so they won’t turn out watery and smoothie-like.

Frozen bananas(Make sure they were fully ripe before frozen)
