Easy Banana Coconut Ice Cream

Easy Banana Coconut Ice Cream

When it comes to a healthy treat that tastes amazing, you can’t beat this simple recipe! My Easy Banana Coconut Ice Cream has just two ingredients and it’s very quick to make.

What’s summer without ice cream?? It’s so nice to have a cold, sweet treat after a long summer’s day. 

But the ice cream you buy is usually full of sugar and artificial additives. You don’t have to go without ice cream when living a healthy lifestyle though. 

You might have guessed that the two ingredients in this ice cream are banana and coconut! Well, coconut milk to be precise. Use a full fat coconut milk to get all the benefits of the good fats in coconut. Also look out for organic where possible and cans that have a BPA free lining.

Bananas are really good for us (in moderation) and provide a high amount of fibre and resistant starch which is a great prebiotic for our gut. They are also a good source of potassium and tryptophan, an amino acid which the body converts to the feel-good brain chemical serotonin.

Coconut milk is rich in short and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are healthy fats that provide satiety.  It is also rich in vitamins C and E, potassium, iron, magnesium and phosphorous!

This recipe is dairy free, nut free, egg free, gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, paleo, vegan, and vegetarian.

Who knew eating ice cream was so good for you!

Easy Banana Coconut Ice Cream


1 can coconut milk (400ml, organic and full fat)

5 bananas, sliced and frozen


Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Occasionally turn the blender off and scrape down the sides if needed. 

Scoop into bowls and enjoy immediately as soft serve or for firmer ice cream, transfer to a baking pan and freeze for at least 1.5 hours before scooping. 

Variations and Tips:

Add a little cocoa powder while blending to make chocolate ice cream!

Top the ice cream with nut butter, jam, chocolate chips, granola, crushed nuts, melted dark chocolate or 

fresh fruit. 

You could also substitute frozen mango or pineapple for the banana.

This recipe will serve 6 people.
