Keywords: healthy, vegetarian, vegan, fruit, quick, no cooking, sweet

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours or overnight

Equipment: plate or baking pan, knife, measuring spoons, blender


  • 2 large ripe bananas (the riper the better)
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk


  1. Slice bananas into ¼ inch coins.
  2. Line a plate or a baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and distribute the banana slices, making sure none are overlapping.
  3. Leave to freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Place frozen banana slices and 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk into a high-speed food processor or blender.
  5. Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often.
  6. If your blender is having a hard time blending the bananas, add more almond milk by the tablespoon.
  7. Once fully blended, the mixture should have the texture of a super thick smoothie or soft serve. 
  8. Transfer to a bowl or cup.
  9. Eat as is or mix in any additional toppings.


  • Try adding different flavors like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, matcha powder, cocoa powder, or peanut butter powder.
  • Optional toppings: sliced almonds, dark chocolate chips, and diced strawberries.
  • The almond milk can be switched out for other milks like cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, or nonfat milk.


  • Make sure the bananas are very ripe because the riper they are the sweeter the taste.

Nutrition Notes:

  • This creamy, icy treat has plenty of potassium and fiber from the bananas and calcium and Vitamin D from the almond milk (make sure it’s fortified)!

Savings Tip:

  • You can buy a bushel of bananas when they are on sale and cut them into coins to keep in the freezer.
