Back to All Recipes



  • 4 very ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
  • ¼- ½ cup plant-based milk


Optional ingredients:

  • ¼ cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew)
  • Flavors to taste (cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, jam, frozen fruit)
  • Flavor extracts (vanilla, almond, peppermint)
  • Mix-ins (chocolate chips, shredded coconut, chopped nuts)



  • Chocolate- Banana, milk, peanut butter, vanilla, cocoa powder or chocolate syrup
  • Cinnamon Roll- Banana, milk, almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon
  • Tropical- Banana, coconut milk, vanilla, frozen pineapple and/or mango
  • Strawberry- Banana, milk, vanilla, frozen strawberries, strawberry jam


  1. Place all ingredients (except mix-ins) in a high speed/power blender or food processor. I like to use my Ninja Chef, which has an ice cream setting. Blend until smooth. My blender has a pestle for pushing down ingredients as it is blending. 
  2. Your nice cream should be the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Stir in any mix-ins and serve immediately. Nice cream is best fresh, but you can store any leftovers in the freezer in an air-tight container—just thaw slightly before serving.
