Here's another one of my favourite frozen dessert recipes from the Vitamix Recipe Center. This quick easy vegan pineapple freeze tastes just like instant tropical frozen yoghurt. It is SO easy and SO delicious. The best thing about this recipe, besides the fact that it takes literally under a minute to make, is that is utilizes three simple ingredients: pineapple, lime juice, and tofu. It also contains NO added sugar! You gotta love that :) This frozen treat is creamy and sweet with a slight tang, and stikes a gorgeous balance for a dessert that you don't have to coat-check your colon to enjoy! If you can't eat soy, substitute the tofu with a bit of rice milk, hemp milk, almond milk etc, or try adding in some fresh coconut meat or creamed coconut. YUMMO!
One of the best features of the Vitamix is that you can easily make these healthy frozen treats from start to finish by blending a variety of frozen fruits with different vegan milks like soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, and oat milk, plus a little sweetener if you'd like. They taste amazing just like this. But you can make them even more interesting by adding in some spices, and other flavourings like nuts, seeds, nut butters, oats, cacao, coconut, dried fruit, seeds, for endless flavour combinations that will keep your family satisfied for years!
I like to blend the vegan milk with some pitted dates and then add in the fruit, so I don't have to use liquid or granulated sugars. You could also use a touch of stevia to make it even healthier. But you can use any milk or sweetener that you like. It is that easy. With a lot of sweet fruits like mangos and bananas you might find you don't need any sweetener at all. Check out my Frozen Desserts Video on the Vitamix website for some easy tips on making amazing Vitamix treats. The most important thing is to use the tamper. Don't be afraid to really get in there with it to help push that frozen fruit towards the blades. When the lid is firmly in place, the tamper will never hit the blades.
Check out some of the other incredible Vitamix frozen desserts like the Banana Freeze, Orange Sorbet, Peach Sherbet, Raspberry Ice Cream, Tomato Strawberry Freeze, and many more. Trust me, for a last minute dessert you just cannot beat making homemade frozen yoghurt and ice cream in your Vitamix. It ROCKS!
