Easy Nana Ice Cream Recipe!

Nana ice cream, banana ice cream, nice cream; whatever you call it, it's delicious!  Dairy-free ice cream is widely available, which is incredible for those of us who still want a sweet chilly treat from time to time.  But what if you don't want to have to run to the store?  Or you want something lower fat and less full of preservatives?  Nana ice cream is the (mouth-watering) solution.  Today I'm sharing a super simple recipe for you to make your own!

Easy Nana Ice Cream Recipe

serves 2  //  5 minutes prep time

  • 4 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 fresh dates, pitted
  • handful cocoa nibs

Throw all ingredients but the cocoa nibs in your trusty blender, and blend until smooth.  Add cocoa nibs on top.  That's it!  Keep in mind that if your blender runs hot you may need to pop your ice cream in the freezer for a 10-20 minutes to get it cold and solid again.

Looking for something simpler?  I've got you covered!
