Chocolate Banana Ice Cream (Dairy, Gluten and Redined Sugar Free)

This is a really simple ice cream which doesn't require an ice cream maker.  It will satisfy a chocolate and ice cream craving.  If you are using my recipe for chocolate sauce it will add a little chocolate crunch as the frozen bananas will make the coconut oil in the sauce harden.  Enjoy!

Ingredients (serves 2-3 people)

  • 2 sliced bananas that have been frozen 
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon honey, maple syrup or natural sweeteners
  • 1/4 cup nondairy milk (or more depending on blender)
  1. In a blender add chopped frozen bananas and the rest of the ingredients.  Blend for 3-5 minutes.  It may turn into a crumbly texture before it becomes smooth so continue to blend until smooth.  It will have the texture of soft ice cream.  If you prefer it a little harder simple add to your freezer for a few minutes.


  1. Wow! This is a great idea!! I will try it. It's very hard to find dairy free ''Ice cream'' that kids like and that is not too expensive. Thanks for the alternative!

  2. Your welcome. Do try it and you can always make variations as long as you keep the frozen banana as that makes it creamy.

  3. For Christmas I got a machine that makes ice-cream with frozen fruit. And after 1 month it broke! I have to do old style way now!
    I used to make ice-cream with bananas, pineapples and mangos! Oh well! :(

  4. just made this and it was amazing!! I ate the whole thing myself!
