I scream, you scream, we all scream for (banana) ice cream! Add Vega One and we’re practically jumping for joy. Vega Blogger Robin of Knead to Cook created two banana ice creams with Vega One, and since Spring is officially here, we think it’s time to dig in!


  • Nut Butter Banana Ice Cream
  • 6 frozen bananas, chopped up into 2 inch disks
  • 1 or 2 Tbsp nut butter
