Banana Ice Cream

  • Serves 2
  • Preparation Time:


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ¼ cup nondairy milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

This banana-based ice cream is so easy to make and the number-one reason why I always have frozen bananas in my freezer. Anytime the craving for rich and creamy ice cream hits, make this instead! P.S. I love (love!) topping this ice cream off with chocolate balsamic vinegar. (I’m not crazy, I swear!)

Place all ingredients together in a food processor and allow the motor to run until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stop and break up large clumps with a spatula as needed.

Chef’s Note:

I like to add 1–2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa for a chocolate version.
