Easy Chai Banana Ice cream, Mocha Chocolate cake, Chai spice Caramel Sundae. vegan recipe

Its hot out here in Seattle and my teeth are behaving. Yes, they cannot deal with the amount of chocolate and ice cream I throw at them, so I have to pace some. Luckily for them(unluckily for people) Seattle has been on the cooler side all through summer. But the day it gets warm enough, I throw atleast 2-3 scoops of ice cream at my teeth. They usually do fine with slightly soft, not too cold and less chocolate-y ice creams(bummer, coz this is the year of chocolate for me. Maybe we should have some cencepts of year of chocolate, ice cream , kale or something like that ;)


Serve a good portion of the cake, with a dollop of ice cream, topped with caramel, nut crumbs and cherries.


Or serve scoops of the Ice cream, topped with caramel sauce, nuts and thin slices/logs of the Mocha cake.


Heather is hosting the Vegan Sundae challenge , and today is the last day to submit entries. Crazy right. Last minute, thy name is Richa.

Too hot, too hot! Quick, take pictures before I melt away.


The ice cream is simple. This is a single serve because hubbs is allergic to bananas, so that means I get to eat all of this, ha!
No worries, Hubbs “will” get to eat some with a SoDelicious Mocha almond fudge scoop. Yup, he probably will get home after 9, so I cannot really guarantee the existence of the cake, caramel or the ice cream. There are plenty cherries.
I have never really been too fond of Sundaes. In fact, never ate one till I came to the land of chocolate, brownies, and loads of sugar. Same applies to hubbs, We’d rather eat some Chaat(savory Indian snacks with chutneys) than a brownie.


The story goes that this is the year of Chocolate for me. I have developed a sudden liking for it, which was non existent till last year. hmmm. Last year was the year of the Indian Pickle.
And I love all things cardamom and Chai spice. Hence the play with these flavors, and theme for the Sundae challenge.
Its almost a Brownie Sundae with the dark Mocha cake. I just make the cake so often, that I used that instead of a fudgier brownie.:)

Remind me to make more Frozen treats, so they can have a separate album and recipe section. What are you loving this summer?

Take a slice of warm cake, place a scoop of the banana ice cream on the cake.
Drizzle as little or as much of the chai spice caramel.

    Dear Lord, that looks amazing! I’ve never been a sundae person either, but that caramel sauce looks just to die for! I don’t know how you can not win with this sundae! Good luck!

    Your sundae looks so good! I thought the banana “ice cream” was crazy till I got a high powered blender. Now we love it — I add other flavors too.

    It’s so hot here, too! I think today is the hotest day of the year so far. I’d love some ice cream right now. With a piece of cake…

    I like using the So Delicious coconut creamer in my coffee, but never thought to make banana ice cream with it – I love your idea of combining the creamer with chai spices and banana! And I’m not a big fan of chocolate either, but those pictures are definitely making me crave a brownie sundae right now – looks amazing!

    I stumbled across your blog a couple of days back and have been hooked since! :) I’m a new vegan and was craving something sweet yesterday so I tried this recipe and it was absolutely delicious! I also made the creamy mushroom and peas curry and loved it! Can’t wait to try some more of your recipes :)
