“Water encompassed me to the point of death The great deep engulfed me, Weeds were wrapped around my head, I descended to the roots of the mountains, the earth with its bars was around me forever, but You have brought up my life from the pit, oh Lord”
Life is busy. Lectures to go to, Seminars to read for, essays to write, dissertations to research and plan and write, work to go to, a wedding to plan, a house to buy, a fiance who deserves all of my love and attention, friends and family to spend time with… when you list it out like that, it builds. It expands, it piles up higher and higher until life seems like a never ending to-do list.
First and foremost, there is God.
When our focus away shifts from learning, growing, and evolving with God, life becomes heavy, busy, stressful… too much and not enough all at once. So, let’s just stop for a minute. Let’s rest for a while, let’s open up our hearts and our minds, let’s refocus.
Today’s blog post is a super duper simple vegan lemon curd ice cream recipe that I came up with last week when I was craving lemon meringue ice cream! If you’re anything like me and are obsessed with lemon flavoured anything, then you’ll absolutely love this recipe!! It tastes so so good, and is literally as healthy as ice cream can get. It’s vegan, which means it’s dairy-free (yay no bloating!) and also is kind to the environment and to the animals (which is honestly super important), so there is 0 guilt attached to this ice cream, you can eat it to your heart’s desire!
Vegan Lemon Curd Ice Cream
4 frozen bananas (freeze them when you’re ripe and spotty for the best flavour, cut up into around 4 chunks per banana before freezing)
A splash of soy milk (or coconut/cashew milk)
The juice from half a lemon
Some granola to top it with (optional)
A powerful blender, food processor or hand blender
1. Allow the bananas to thaw for around 5 minutes
2. Put the bananas into the blender with a splash of soy/cashew/coconut milk and pulse until all the big chunks are broken down into little pieces
3. Add the lemon juice and blend/continue pulsing until the mixture is all creamy
4. Pour out into a bowl, top with granola and enjoy!!!
