Banana Ice Dream

Can it really be this simple? Oh yes! Frozen bananas tossed into a blender with three other ingredients results in a light and fluffy 'ice cream' that feels satisfyingly indulgent. If that isn't enough, the protein content in the almond butter cuts the glycemic load of the bananas and lends a creamy sweetness.

This recipe makes two perfectly sized servings for you and your sweetie or one large serving, ahem, like we may or may not have eaten while whipping this up in our test kitchen. 

  • 3 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 2 TB almond butter
  • 1 TB coconut milk or water
  • 1/8 tspn cardamom or 1 tspn cinnamon (not both)


Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Either eat immediately in it's 'soft serve' state or return to the freezer for 15-30 minutes for a firmer ice cream texture. 

Topping Suggestions:
  • Shredded coconut
  • Chopped almonds, hazelnuts, or walnuts
  • Freshly sliced bananans
  • Black sesame seeds
