How To Make Healthy Banana Chocolate Ice Cream At Home

Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Almond butter, frozen bananas, cacao powder, and almond milk can all be used to make nutritious chocolate banana ice cream. It tastes great, is dairy-free, nutritious, and doesn’t need an ice cream maker!

All summer long, I tend to need ice cream. Perhaps it’s early recollections of chocolate and strawberry cones from the world’s greatest soft-serve ice cream shop, Carl’s Ice Cream. 

Or perhaps it’s just that I need something to chill out because it’s so hot outside. I could have ice cream every day in either case. Since banana ice cream has always been my favourite treat, I was ecstatic to learn that all you need is frozen bananas to make it.

Since my mother-in-law was the one who initially introduced me to the concept, I must appreciate her for it. This occurred many years ago, long before Pinterest existed.

It’s great that frozen banana ice cream is becoming well-known! All I’m waiting for in Richmond is the opening of a store selling nutritious fruit-based ice creams.

In any case, I’ve become obsessed with banana ice cream once more this summer. I’ve been experimenting with several different combinations and have discovered a new favourite.

Here’s What You Need

Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Frozen bananas: To make blending them easier, peel and cut your bananas before freezing! For advice and tricks, see my tutorial on freezing bananas!

almond milk: To add extra chocolate flavour without adding sugar, I used unsweetened chocolate almond milk, and it was amazing! Even unsweetened vanilla almond milk is excellent.

Almond butter: any brand will do as long as almonds and salt are the sole components! Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are good brands.

Cocoa powder: Either cocoa powder or cacao powder will do!

Chocolate chips or nibs: are optional, but I enjoy the texture they add. Lily’s chocolate chips are my choice if you’re using chocolate chips because they don’t include any added sugar. 

As everyone knows, bananas and chocolate go great together, but when you add some almond butter, things start to get interesting. The trifecta consists of chocolate, bananas, and almond butter.

This was my first purchase of Almond Breeze unsweetened chocolate in all the years I’ve been a customer. Crazy, huh? I’m happy that I chose to give it a try at last because I can definitely see myself purchasing it once again.

It tastes quite well as a creamer for my iced cold brew coffee, which is what I’ve been doing. like an iced mocha latte.

Look at how creamy and smooth it turns out!?

Use your creativity!

For a little crunch, I added a few cacao nibs, but you may easily omit them. I understand that some people won’t like it, but Isaac detests crunchy ingredients in his ice cream (or brownies), like almonds and chocolate chips.

With or without nibs, this guilt-free ice cream tastes amazing and is really simple to prepare! Are you prepared to make the recipe?

Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

  • Put the bananas, almond butter, almond milk, and chocolate powder in a high-speed blender or food processor.
  • Process or pulse until creamy and smooth. During processing, you might need to stop the engine and give the mixture a few stirs.
  • Pulse again after adding the chocolate chips or cacao nibs, if using. Transfer the ice cream to a bowl and savour it! You can freeze the ice cream for two hours to make it sufficiently solid to scoop if you’d like to.
