I love all forms of ice cream. Unfortunately I can't eat it every day, so I love to whip up a healthier version. My nephew definitely shares my sweet tooth, so this one's for him. He loves bananas so I wanted to show him how creamy and sweet they can be without any dairy or added sugar!



  1. Combine the frozen bananas, cocoa powder, almond butter and coconut milk in a high-speed blender. Blend on high speed; use the tamper to push down on the ingredients so they blend evenly. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Stop the blender, add the chocolate chips and salt. Blend again until combined.
  2. Serve immediately, while it's soft like soft-serve ice cream, or transfer it to a freezer-safe container and freeze until firmer and easy to scoop, about 2 hours. Can be frozen up to 1 month. 

Cook’s Note

If you're serving the nice cream from the freezer, let it sit out for up to 30 minutes to soften for optimal creaminess; because of its high water content and low amount of fat, it gets very hard in the freezer.
