Dairy Free "Nice Cream"

Dairy free "nice cream" is an easy dessert or afternoon snack.


  • 2-3 overripe frozen bananas
  • Optional additions: unsweetened almond milk, if you’d like a thinner “nice cream”, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, add in Greek yogurt for protein addition, cocoa powder for chocolate “nice cream”, add in frozen strawberries or peaches for strawberry or peach “nice cream”
  • Toppings: berries, dark chocolate chips, sprinkle of cinnamon or cardamom or pumpkin pie spice


    1. Peel and cut ripe bananas into large pieces, then freeze in an airtight bag or container. (You can freeze a whole bunch at once so they are ready whenever you want to make banana ice cream.)
    2. To make the ice cream, throw around 2-3 frozen bananas into a blender, food processor.
    3. Optional step: add 2-4 TBSP of milk of choice for smoother blending if desired—and blend until you achieve a soft-serve texture.
    4. You can serve immediately add favorite toppings like raw nuts, dark chocolate chips, or shredded, unsweetened coconut.
