How to Make Banana Ice Cream (2 Ingredients!)

Healthy Banana Ice Cream Recipe

Banana ice cream is one of the easiest healthy desserts you will ever make!

All you need is a few frozen bananas (peel them before you freeze them), a few tablespoons non-dairy milk, and a food processor or blender.

Frozen banana Pieces + Non-dairy Milk = Delicious Banana Ice Cream

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.

Using this method, you can turn frozen bananas and almond milk into delicious soft-serve “ice cream” in less than a few minutes.

Healthy Banana Ice Cream Recipe Method

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.

Healthy Banana Ice Cream 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

    Can I use regular milk for this? Or is it better with almond milk? Obviously it wouldn’t be dairy free but does it change the consistency?

    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.

    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!

    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.
