Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

What would you say if I told you it was possible to make ice cream at home without a machine? What if I told you it was all natural with no added sugar, no dairy products and no saturated fat? If you’ve never made homemade vegan ice cream before, I’m about to blow your mind.

The secret? Frozen bananas!! Yes, my friends, it’s true: frozen bananas are the secret ingredient in my Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream. Before I continue, I must give credit to my girl MJ who first introduced me to machine-free, dairy-free ice cream over 3 years ago.

Boys Eating Ice Cream

With two little ones, we always have bananas on hand. I love banana bread as much as the next gal but it’s bathing suit season and way too hot to turn on the oven so instead of baking I peel over-ripe bananas then wrap them in plastic wrap and pop them in the freezer. (You can also slice them then throw them in a plastic bag but I usually slice them before using them with a sharp knife.)

Most days we use frozen bananas for smoothies but now that summer has arrived and the heat is on, I crave ice cream almost daily. Since I’m still working on losing the baby weight, I love having a healthier, guilt-free version on hand. Not only is it easier on the waistline but my 2 year old can enjoy it and we get to skip the traditional ice cream induced post-sugar-buzz meltdown.

Strawberry Picking - The Lemon Bowl

I am a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter but feel free to add in your favorite flavors. We recently went strawberry picking so a vegan strawberry ice cream is next on our list, soon to be followed by blueberries and peaches. If you are hosting a summer party and accommodating friends or family with dairy or gluten allergies, this dessert is a no brainer.

  1. Can I substitute the frozen bananas for another fruit? I’m allergic to bananas but all the vegan ice cream recipes I’ve come across call for banana
