Are you dairy-free, but miss the smooth refreshing of ice cream. Try banana ice cream - it’s delicious and requires only one primary ingredient! This NICE cream is nutritious and highly-customizable - add your favorite flavorings and toppings to make it your own.
Peel and chop bananas into pieces and freeze them overnight (or 2 hours in a pinch) in an airtight container or freezer bag. When you blend the bananas, they’ll go through stages - crumbly, gooey, piece-y, and then finally smooth and creamy. Keep the faith!
Here are a few flavorings and toppings to consider:
- Peanut butter
- Chocolate syrup
- Cacao nibs
- Vanilla extract
This ice cream will last for up to 3 months in your freezer in an airtight container.
The whole process takes about 15 minutes from start to finish.
This yummy treat is perfect for a quick breakfast or a midnight snack - or both! Make them large as an over-indulgence or make them bite-size so that you can eat them by the handful.
This recipe is dairy, egg, and cholesterol-free. With a bit of attention, you can even make these gluten-free!
Instead of chocolate chips, you can chop pieces of a chocolate bar.
Prep time: 5 mins. Baking time: 25 mins. The recipe makes 12 muffins.
Frozen bananas and chocolate, what else could you want? This recipe calls for seven ingredients you probably have in your cabinet. Grape-Nuts cereal is the final component, but if you’re nut-free, don’t panic over the name - Grape-nuts don’t actually contain any nuts. But you can also substitute in Kashi 7 Whole Grain Nuggets.
Prep time: 30 mins. Ready in 30 mins. The recipe makes 50 frozen treats.

With only one more ingredient than the banana ice cream, this is another easy-to-make but extraordinarily tasting frozen treat. And with the optional addition of one other little ingredient - cardamom or paprika, you’ll have Mexican-style ice cream on your hands. Like bananas, frozen mango chunks make for remarkably smooth and tasty ice cream.
If using fresh mango, peel and cut in chunks just like what you do with the bananas. But mangos require a longer freezing time - 6 hours or overnight.
Before you process, let your frozen fruit sit for a bit to soften - your blender or food processor will thank you. If your appliance is still having a tough time, add a little plant milk. Then continue processing until it’s smooth and creamy. Serve it immediately or freeze in an airtight container for later.
Prep Time: 15 mins. This recipe makes 6 cups of ice cream.
