Banana “Ice Cream”

Frozen and pureed bananas have a smooth and creamy texture that will trick anybody into believing they are eating real ice cream

You scream, I scream, we all scream for…. Bananas? That’s not usually how that cheer goes but this “ice cream” recipe requires just 1 ingredient: bananas! Frozen and pureed bananas make for a delectable ice cream substitute with no added sugar or fat. This is completely raw and vegan too! Adding a touch of freshly grated nutmeg and salt heightens the banana flavors and makes this recipe ultra crave-worthy.

To serve, I like to lightly sprinkle the ice cream with fleur de sel salt and serve along sliced regular bananas for a fancier presentation. 


  • 4 very ripe bananas, cut into rounds and then frozen
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 2 Teaspoons salt


In a blender, blend bananas, salt and nutmeg until very smooth. Eat immediately or pour into a loaf pan and freeze until harder.
