Yield 2 1x


  • 4 cups frozen banana slices (~2 large bananas)
  • 24 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (any kind of milk will work)


  1. Place frozen banana slices and 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk into a high-speed food processor or blender.
  2. Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often.
  3. If your blender is having a hard time blending the bananas, add more almond milk by the tablespoon.
  4. Once pureed together, your banana nice cream should be like a super thick smoothie or soft serve. Option to eat immediately or to transfer to a parchment-lined bread pan to freeze for later.
  5. Freeze banana nice cream for 1 to 2 hours so that it hardens enough to scoop like ice cream, but isn’t too hard where you can’t scoop it.
