Healthy simple home made ice cream

Food & Recipes door thijs

Can you believe that with just one ingredient you can make a vegan, gluten-free, dairy-allergic ice cream?

Wait, what?  Healthy ice cream?

Yes! I can promise you girls it exists! And all I can say is, let's go bananas!

With just 3 ripe bananas, a freezer and a blender, you can have the perfect healthy dessert for the sunny days and even for those gloomy ones during a difficult break-up. Eating bananas is a great energy booster, it also protects you against muscle cramps during and after workouts - thanks to the high levels of potassium. And of course it is a great substitute for us ice cream lovers!

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Peel 3 ripe bananas and slice them thickly.
  2. Put them into the freezer until they are solid (about 2 hours).
  3. Add them into the blender. When you start mixing you can also add a bit of water, it helps the process! The mixing part might take a moment, but don’t worry because before you know it, the mix will suddenly become a creamy, rich, ready to eat ice cream. Easy right?
  4. Now you can serve it right away and enjoy!


With only bananas you can get this great ice cream texture and of course you can be creative with it! My friend and I decided to keep half of the ice cream in the blender and added frozen berries. We ended up with two great flavours to enjoy.

It is a very good friend of mine who shared this recipe with me, she also told me for when I need inspiration to follow nanaicecream on Instagram for more vegan banana ice cream pictures,

Now, it  is time to enjoy!
