Fish Food Ice Cream

15. OMG, Barack Obama is coming over because he knows you make awesome vegan food!

Will this is scary. I mean- if Barack Obama wants awesome vegan food- I can point him in the direction of plenty. My vegan food is good- and I'm working on it- but I wouldn't say it's at the awesome level yet. So to be honest- it was really hard to think what I should do for today (10 days ago). I can think of plenty of thinks that I have mastered and are awesome - but that I wouldn't serve to the president- and plenty of food that I think would be okay to serve to the president- but that I haven't got to the awesome level yet. 

And although I would love to see the President of the United States use chopsticks.... I just don't think that ramen is something that I'd serve him. 

So.... thinking hats on. 

Um.... the only thing that I came up with is that I hope I never really have to cook for the president.... because I dread to think what I'd actually end up serving. He would probably end up going hungry.

So instead of imagining what I WOULD feed him- I imagined what I think he enjoys eating. I mean - really - who am I to know? All I know is that he is the president of the united states- has an allergy friendly dog - and had the Girl Scouts camp out on his lawn.

But I decided that he probably likes ice cream. Like- eating from the pint kind of ice cream. Something I have never done.

No actually - I am a bowl and spoon kind of girl.

Well I say that ... actually I've got into the habit of making my own ice cream this summer. Out of bananas.

You know -

cause it's so AMAZINGLY good. And I could quite easily overeat bananas by eating banana soft serve. Actually - I could quite easily overeat bananas in many ways - just one of which is from eating banana soft serve all day and nothing else.

But yes- I think that the President is a eating a ice cream from the pint kind of guy. I don't know why - I guess it's cause I what I imagine people want to do if they come home from a day at work quite that bad. 

We never really had 'pints' of ice cream when I was younger. We had 'tubs'. Raspberry ripple and Neapolitan. Vanilla. Usually vanilla.

The pints that we did have - were Ben & Jerry's. Mom liked Cookie Dough. Dad and my brother had Phish Food. Cherry Garcia occasionally. Other ones I can't really remember because they were very infrequent.

I decided the President needed chocolate. His job must be very hard. Bad days require chocolate.  So Phish Food it was. 

Except it's not from a pint. It's from a mini food processor.

Fish Food Ice Cream 
Serves 1
  • Vegan chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 banana
  • 1 soft date 
  • 2 tablespoons mini vegan marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa
  • Plant milk
  • Vegan chocolate sauce

  • Peel the banana, slice into pieces and freeze
  • IF USING FISH (OR OTHER SHAPED) MOLD Melt the chocolate (either in the microwave or over a double boiler) and pour into moulds. Let cool. 
  • OTHERWISE If needed- chop the chocolate into small pieces. 
  • When the banana is frozen and the chocolate shapes cool, chop the date, and place that and the frozen banana in the food processor/blender, and blitz until tiny pieces form - a bit like gravel. But obviously nicer. 
  • Add half the marshmallows, cocoa and a few drops of milk. Blitz again. If the mixture does not start to form 'ice cream' add a bit more milk and blitz till smooth. 
  • Transfer to a bowl (or mug or whatever) and stir in the remaining marshmallows, chocolate sauce and chocolate shapes/pieces/chips. 
  • Enjoy - weather you have had a REALLY bad day at work or not. Cause ice cream is always nice. 


  1. The chocolate "fish" are such a neat idea to add to the ice cream! :)

    1. They were fiddly but definitely worth the extra work!
