Decadent Banana Ice Cream

Every time I make my Decadent Banana Ice Cream, I'm amazed. How can frozen bananas make such a creamy dessert without an ice cream maker?! It's beyond me, but I'm fine with that. I'll continue to eat it while pondering this and life's other mysteries.

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • Optional (flavorful) additions: vanilla bean, raw chocolate cacao nibs, acai berry powder to taste
Serves 2-3.

  1. Cut bananas into small 1 inch pieces, contain, and place in freezer for 24 hours.
  2. Remove frozen banana slices, and place in blender. You will see the moment (after 10 seconds or so) when it becomes ice cream-y texture. Refrain from eating out of the blender if possible.
  3. Optional: add vanilla bean, raw cacao nibs, or acai powder to the blender for a variety of superfood healthy flavors. Oooey goooey yumminess!! Try this. You will not look back.


  1. Yummy! I haven't made banana ice cream in a long time, this looks great!

  2. I still have to try this out! I keep tabbing it on my head but never got around actually making it - its also winter and cold but YES, I shall. thanks for the yummy reminder :)

    1. haha of course! It's definintely worth trying :)

  3. Perfect treat!
