Healthy 2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream Recipe

One of my favorite things about healthy food prep is using magic to replace unhealthy food with something that tastes even better (and is way better for you). And by magic I mean a food processor.

Today I’m showing you how to turn frozen bananas and almond milk into delicious soft-serve “ice cream” in less than a minute. Click play on the video above to see it happen.

Healthy Banana Ice Cream Recipe

Pulse frozen bananas and unsweetened almond milk in a food processor until it’s the consistency of ice cream. Use 1-2 bananas per person, and about 1 tablespoon of almond milk per banana. Top with your favorite healthy topping and serve immediately.

Note: It’s important the bananas are frozen or else you’ll just end up with baby food.

Yummy Topping Ideas:

  • 1 teaspoon chia seed “sprinkles”
  • handful of pitted cherries
  • handful of frozen berries
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips (at least 70% cocoa)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts

Your turn. Give this recipe a whirl and let me know your favorite way to eat it in the comments below.

    I have made this many times and it is truly amazing. My pickiest eaters have enjoyed it. It’s important to note that cutting the bananas into small chunks makes the whole process work better (although maybe this is in the video – I didn’t watch). I have added peanut butter and/or cacao powder (high quality is well worth it). I add a tablespoon of agave with the chocolate version.

    I make this all the time! I slice the bananas first into pieces like you’d put in cereal. Then I put them all on a cookie sheet to freeze (I do about 4-5 bananas at a time). Once frozen you can put them in ziplock bags and keep in freezer. If you freeze them on the cookie sheet then add them to the bag it’s MUCH easier to grab what you need instead of a banana glob. I tried it in the vitamix and it’s tough to get going so I agree, use a food processor. I love just a touch of peanut butter. It’s also a great treat to freeze in paper cups for dogs in the summer!

    Just tried this in my magic food processor. It is awesome and my little boy is enjoying a bowl right now. I put a tiny bit of organic vanilla and organic maple syrup in it too. Thanks for that great, simple recipe! So easy 🙂
    Jamie is on his second bowl, he wouldn’t eat the previous banana Icecream I made which just had banana in it, but with the almond milk its so much creamier. Yum.
