dairy free sugar free ice cream

This ice cream is oh so healthy and yummy at the same time.

Most of you have probably seen this around before, but for those of you who haven't, simply peel some ripe bananas chop and freeze.
Take your bananas out of the freezer about 15 minutes before to soften a bit and then put the bananas into your food processor and whizz until smooth or if you have a champion juicer (on my wish list) use that instead.
You can serve it straight away, it will be like a soft serve, or pop it back into the freezer for a while and it will be like proper ice cream.
Now for some variations:
-add some other frozen fruit, blueberries are yummy, so are peaches or whatever you have on hand
-for chocolate ice cream add some cocoa or cacao powder and a little honey or rice malt syrup, 
-for chocolate chip add some cacao bits or chopped 85% dark chocolate
I just sprinkled some cacao bits on the top of my chocolate ice cream in the (wonky) picture above.
I am sure you can think of other variations- just have some fun experimenting!

I have made a blueberry one and a peach one to take on holidays with us ready for our Sundaes on Sunday.
I will be back in 2 weeks, with some more recipes, birthday party planning and some holiday snaps.


  1. We used to do this when we had our Champion juicer, it was great. We don't have a food processor but I guess it may work in a blender.
    Good to see bananas at a reasonable price again isn't it.

    1. I have tried a couple of things in my blender that I make successfully in my food processor but found the blades are too high for it to work successfully, but you could always try.

  2. Wow, I will have to try this! A great healthy alternative to one of my favorite vices! andrea@townandprairie

  3. I have not seen this before. Thanks for sharing this though. I have gallbladder troubles and can't tolerate any fat and thought I had to give up ice cream. I am going to give this a try, sounds delicious!
