Raw Banana Mango Ice Cream in Chocolate Cups

My little mama is so cute. I had sent her the link to Veggie Weggie’s Banana Mango Ice Cream in Chocolate Cups a while back, and she surprised me by making them for me when I was visiting last month. She was already a big fan of raw vegan banana ice cream, and was already making a mango-banana combo before seeing the post, but decided to make the chocolate cups as a special treat.

Rather than using balloons to make the chocolate cups, she used tinfoil muffin cups. My mom reckoned that they would be easier to make this way (and arguably better for the environment). She used a pastry brush to paint a thin layer of melted chocolate into the cups, letting them dry, and repeating the process about 3 times. If you’ve ever made peanut butter cups, it’s the same process. Once you’re ready to serve the ice cream, just peel-back the foil lining and fill it with your ice cream and toppings.

Veggie Wedgie’s presentation is so cute because the ice cream is piped into the cups, and topped with gorgeous red cherries. We just scooped our ice cream into the cups, and topped them with fresh raspberries that we had on hand. Regardless, I think that our cups still looked pretty darn cute… and the taste combination was amazing!

I love that with a little bit of foresight, you can pull-off such a beautiful little treat. This would be equally good at the end of a fancy dinner party – or enjoyed outside on the deck, while you savor those precious September evenings (or beckon the start of spring/summer here in the southern hemisphere). Wherever you are, I hope you’ll enjoy this fun little treat!

  3. Those cups are genius! I wonder if it would work in my silicone baking cups or if the chocolate would slide down instead of sticking.

      Hi Faith – That’s a great idea! And even better for the environment. As long as you get a few good layers on there, they should be thick enough to “pop” them out of the molds without breaking. Let me know if you try it and how it works out!

    this is low carb??? All the recipes on this site include rice or beans, which are very high in carbs.

      Hi Patrick – they’re low-carb *vegan* recipes, so they avoid things like white pasta, white bread, etc. “Healthy carbs” or “lower carbs” would be a good definition too, but I use “low carb” and most people understand what I’m referring to.

    Hi Angela,

    Just wondering what you use for chocolate. I buy non-dairy chocolate chips at a health-food store. I haven’t tried to melt them yet. Do you recommend a brand?

    I live in BC where we can pretty much get anything.

    Love your website. I’ll be making the Banana and the Mango ice cream tonight. Both look amazing. I buy the So Good brand of “ice cream” which I love but making my own would be better. What do you recommend for Vanilla ice cream? That is my favourite. When I still ate dairy, I would go into a Baskin Robbins store with all of the flavours they offered and just order Vanilla. :-)

    • Hi Sharon – I don’t use a particular brand of chocolate, just whatever I can find in the moment. The So Good ice cream is tasty but not sure I love all the “stuff” they put in it. Have you tried coconut ice cream? That stuff is amaaaaazing!

    Just wanted to say that I don’t think these should be called low-carb with the bananas and agave which makes them over 43 grams of carbs per serving which would not be considered low-carb.

    • You’re right, but they’re low in processed carbs and that’s what my readers have indicated is important to them.
