Easy and Healthy Frozen Banana Ice Cream – with Carob Sauce

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Healthy and frozen banana ice cream is one of life’s simple pleasures. This easy banana ice cream recipe uses just two ingredients: frozen bananas and vanilla bean seeds. Keep a batch of this “no guilt” frozen treat in the freezer and enjoy it all year round!

I also included a recipe for a strawberry and carob sauce if you want to get fancy and dress up your banana ice cream. I think you’ll enjoy both sauces, but I’m really excited about the carob sauce because even my husband (who is not a fan of carob) said it was better than chocolate sauce! Trust me, you’re gonna love it!

Easy Banana Ice Cream

4 large bananas (cut into coins and completely frozen)
Seeds from 2 vanilla beans (optional)

Process the frozen bananas through either the Omega 8006/8004 juicer or the Champion Juicer with the blank screen, or use a food processor.*  Let the banana ice cream soften a bit and then stir in the seeds from the 2 vanilla bean pods. Serve with homemade strawberry or carob sauce (recipes below). Makes 2-4 servings. Keep in the freezer.

*If you don’t have a masticating juicer you can use a food processor with the S-blade. Just make sure to scrape down the sides often, and you might need to add a small amount of liquid for it to blend thoroughly.

Carob Sauce

1/2 cup coconut water (or your favorite non-dairy milk)
1/3 cup chopped, pitted, and tightly packed mejidool dates (about 5 dates)
2 tablespoons carob powder
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
seeds from 1 vanilla bean
dash sea salt

Blend all carob sauce ingredients in a high-speed blender until you get a creamy consistency. Makes about 1 cup of carob sauce.  You can drizzle the carob sauce over ice cream or use it as a dip for fresh fruit. Makes about 1 cup carob sauce. Will last a few days in the fridge.

*You can replace the carob powder with coco powder if you prefer.

Strawberry Sauce

2 cups halved fresh strawberries
1/3 cup chopped, pitted, and tightly packed mejidool dates (about 5 dates)
seeds from 1 vanilla bean (optional)
squeeze fresh lemon juice (optional)

Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Use this strawberry sauce over ice cream, hot cereal, or in yogurt. Makes about 1 cup strawberry sauce. Will last a few days in the fridge.
