Other than the occasional bacon topped something, there are very few desserts that have meat in them. Most, however, do have a multitude of dairy products. These Meat Free Mondays desserts have no meat or animal byproduct and lack artificial sweeteners and preservatives.

Vegan Chocolate Banana Ice Cream by Shayne

Servings: 2    Prep Time: 6 hours    Cook Time: 10 minutes

I have been dying to try one of these banana "ice creams" since I heard about it a few months back. This one is so simple and yummy, it seemed like the perfect first try!


3 Bananas

1/3 Cup almond milk

1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract

2 Tablespoons cocoa powder

Slice bananas and place in freezer for 5 hours or over nite. Add bananas, almond milk, and vanilla extract to food processor. Process until creamy. Add the cocoa powder and blend again until it has the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Serve and enjoy.

Maple Banana Fudge by Shayne

Servings: 4    Prep Time: 15 minutes    Cook Time: 1 hour+   

A great, healthy, alternative to the usual butter filled fudge. Make sure to keep this refrigerated until use so it does not melt. You can also use almond butter as a coconut butter replacement if you do not care for coconut.


1 Large banana

1/2 Cup coconut butter

1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon

A pinch of salt

1/4 Cup maple syrup

Place coconut butter in baking dish and microwave until melted- about 30 seconds. In the mean time, mash your banana with a fork until it has an otmeal-like consistency. Add the coconut butter, cinnamon, and salt in with the banana. Stir, then add the maple syrup. Mix well and freeze for at least 1 hour
