3-Step Recipe: Banana "Ice Cream"

Summer may have passed but there's always room for ice cream! During this upcoming holiday season, wow your friends and family with this one-ingredient banana "ice cream"!

That's right - the only ingredient in this sweet treat is ripe bananas. All it takes is some freezing time, a food processor, and a couple of minutes. Enjoy this on its own or add a little flair of flavor by mixing in peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread.

Better yet, sprinkle over your favorite NatureBox granola on top for some added crunch!


Serves: 2

Prep time: 7 minutes


  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate hazelnut spread (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional)


1. Peel banana and slice into evenly-sized chunks. Place in airtight container and freeze at least 2 hours. 

2. Blend frozen banana pieces in a food processor or blender until smooth, about 5 minutes. The bananas will look crumbly after 1-2 minutes, then gooey, and then finally, creamy.

3. If desired, add in flavor like chocolate hazelnut spread of peanut butter. Serve immediately or freeze to eat later!
