This is my go-to recipe when I’m craving something cool and creamy.  This ice cream recipe does not require an ice cream machine-just a food processor and some frozen bananas.  Make sure to freeze the bananas without their peels and chopped up.  This step makes it easier to handle later on.  You need a creamy based for this recipe-I used peanut butter here but any nut butter (cashew, almond, etc) would do.  Also, you could dress this ice cream up any way you’d like as long as it has the frozen bananas and a nut butter base.  This recipe makes enough for one so scale up if need.


  • 1 medium frozen ripe banana, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon melted chocolate
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey or agave to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (approx.) soy milk
  • garnishes of your choice (optional)


Process all ingredients in a food processor together until smooth and creamy.  Add more or less of the soy milk (or nut milk) as needed to get the right texture (you will get a soft-serve ice cream consistency).  Enjoy immediately!
