Dairy Free, Sugar Free Ice Cream!

June 6, 2013

By Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

I know what you’re thinking…

Ummm….ice cream?  Really??  I thought this was a healthy blog?!

What if I told you that the delicious soft serve* pictured above has only ONE ingredient (can you guess which ingredient that might be??) AND no ice cream maker is needed?

No dairy, no sweeteners.

What if I told you there are several variations to this ONE ingredient ice cream that makes it even more delicious?

Believe me when I tell you that you should RUN home to make this and when you DO make this, you will make it again and again.

It’s THAT easy, it’s THAT delicious and it’s THAT healthy!

Your kids will LOVE it!

The main ingredient…..

That’s right…ripened bananas!

Who knew that frozen bananas could make such delicious ice cream!


They key is slicing the bananas before freezing them for an hour or two. (remove from freezer and let sit in food processor for about 15 minutes prior to blending)


Dump frozen banana slices in a food processor.


Whirl until you get a soft serve consistency.
Eat & enjoy!

Cinnamon Dulce Banana Ice Cream (not as healthy due to condensed milk, but still better than store bought)

1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground cinnamon
Blend bananas in food processor until they are the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Blend in sweetened condensed milk and cinnamon. Transfer to a freezer container and freeze until solid.

*If you prefer a more firm ice cream, you can freeze in an airtight container until it gets as firm as regular ice cream!

    Sorry, but this isn’t sugar free. This has no added sugar, but it sure has sugar due to the bananas.
