Vegan Pecan Praline Ice Cream…a healthy Vitamix recipe made with only 5 whole food ingredients and it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
My Vegan Pecan Praline Ice Cream recipe that I have for you today is only the beginning of a multitude of delicious vegan and dairy-free ice cream recipes I have coming your way!
Although I have many ready to roll out, I decided to make this one the first one I share this year.
You may have already tried some of my ice cream recipes from last year like Vegan Superfood Ice Cream, Vegan Black Forest Ice Cream (my favorite!), Vegan Chocolate Chip Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream or Vegan Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream.
Like the others, this one is really simple to make with only a few ingredients, a Vitamix and an ice cream maker.
Once that part was ready, I added in chopped pecans.
Traditional ice cream, of course, is made with dairy and a list of other ingredients that really should be avoided.
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Haagen-Dazs Pralines and Cream Ice Cream Ingredients:

This popular brand that I used for comparison contains GMO dairy (cream, milk non-fat, butter) and other GMO ingredients like sugar and corn syrup.
My healthier version is made with only 5 clean, whole food ingredients and is “almost raw”, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, paleo-friendly and no refined sugar.
