Paleo Purple "Ice Cream"

Prep Time

5 minutes

Cooking Time

0 minutes


4 servings


1 cup of frozen blueberries

1 ripe frozen banana

¼ cup raw cashews (If they are soaked for at least 3 hours, you will get a creamier consistency, but it works with them straight from the bag too!)

1-2 tablespoons powdered cacao

almond milk to desired thickness


  1. Put all ingredients except almond milk into the Vita-Mix container. 
  2. Start on a lower speed to get things mixing, and slowly dial up to high. Use tamper to push fruit down into blades. 
  3. Blend on high until you have the consistency you would like.  
  4. Add almond milk if it is still too thick. Consistency can be anywhere from the thickness of ice cream, to a soft serve cone, to a shake.  
  5. Enjoy!


You can also add walnuts, pecans, macadamia nuts right at the end for some crunch and goodness of healthy fats.  Or add cacao nibs.  Cacao is rich in antioxidents and good for your heart!
