Guilt Free Ice Cream
Happy Thursday foodies!!
Oh do I have a delicious guilt free, very healthy ice cream for you!!
First off, my parents are now on a plant-based diet. Is it easy to do, no way!! My mom is not doing any oils at all, so with that being said it’s not easy to come up with recipes that don’t call for any oil in this house, especially my all time favorite OLIVE OIL!!
Yesterday night, my boyfriend was munching on a delicious ice cream cone, definitely not guilt free lol. I was craving ice cream, and had an idea. Since we are trying to better our health, I wanted a recipe that was dairy free and sugar-free.
You know those frozen bananas you have in the freezer, well get them out! Let me tell you, bananas are great in smoothies, but did you know you can make delicious ice cream with it?? Oh yes, and even better, smooth and fresh ice cream.

**Okay for those who are shaking their heads and saying I can’t stand bananas…. Well do me a favor and try this recipe once and you might thank me later. 🙂
- 2 frozen bananas, diced
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 dash cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 1 tsp toasted chopped almonds
Optional: Clover honey
- In a food processor add the bananas and coconut milk on high-speed. Mix until mixture becomes smooth. (I had to wipe down the sides with a spatula and then mix again.)
- Place mix in a bowl, and cover. Chill in freezer for 1 hour.
- Remove from freezer and serve with cinnamon, nuts, and honey.
Switch It Up~ Add In Ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons nutella

Thank you for re-sharing koukla! 🙂
That’s even better 💙
Yes 🙂 💙💙
Sounds and looks yummy! the best part is that it’s low calories….Yummers! 😀
Yes I agree!!! It’s super easy, and doesn’t require a ice cream machine. 🙂
This looks lovely and no need for an ice cream maker!
Thank you sweetheart! Yes, no need for a ice cream maker! 🙂
I have heard of ice cream made this way! I can’t believe your parents disdain the oil of their country, lol! Olive oil comes from a plant, so to speak, right? Well I wish them luck with their new diet. The ice cream looks delectable!
Yes, funny eh?
They are in their late sixties so they have to watch their diets. 🙂
My father can’t really follow the no olive oil but he is sure trying. I don’t really agree with the cookbook they are following to be honest, but if it makes my parents feel better then good. 🙂
Thank you for enjoying my recipe dear.
Do you think you’ll be coming to Bend this summer? I’d love to have a cuppa with you somewhere!
I would LOVE to meet you! My best friend lives in Seattle actually so maybe sometime after November? I would love to do that too. What’s your plans for the rest of the Summer?
The rest of the summer we plan on going halibut fishing next weekend, then crabbing and salmon fishing as much as possible in September and October! If you drive through Bend I would love to see if we could meet up!
Wow that sounds like soooo much fun!!!
I love fishing. 🙂
Yes I would love that too!! Thanks for offering, and let’s see if maybe November might work?
Sure, I really don’t see why not!!
