Been looking for a nut/seed free ice cream recipe for a while. Got the idea from a restaurant, Bonobo’s. This is just the base. Options are endless what you can add to make other flavors. The banana surprisingly gives it a creamy texture, but not an overly dominating flavor.

Recipe Directions

Put bananas, coconut butter and vanilla in high power blender and process until smooth and creamy. Put in freezer to firm up for about 45 mins – hour. Take out and put in ice cream maker according to instructions (usually about 20 mins or so). If you don’t have an ice cream maker can likely just keep in freezer for a bit longer and process in the blender again at a low speed.
Other ingredients to add to make other flavors:
Mango ice cream—1 ripe mango
Mint chocolate chip—1 tbls. spirulina, fresh mint leaves, handful of cacao nibs
Peach ice cream – 2 ripe peaches
Chocolate banana – 1 tbls of cacao powder
Carbo mint – fresh mint leaves, 2 tbls carob powder
You get the point. Experiment and have fun.

HOOOOOOOLYYYYYYYY COOOOOOOOOOOWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!
I just made this... skipped the oil and did what Carmentina did, since I had some bananas in the freezer already. This ROCKS! I'm SO going to be making this again... like, tomorrow. ;-)

Thanks so much for this! I just posted a question about banana-based ice cream versus coconut-based ice cream (re: possible overpowering banana flavor). This recipe definately sheds a new light on things.

I do the same thing but the process is the inverse. First freeze the bananas and let them thaw about 20 minutes until somewhat soft but with ice crystals still. Blend. You get a soft-serve consistency!
