Thick, creamy, and delicious, Vegan Almond Chunky Monkey soft serve is a straightforward and non-dairy no-churn ice cream that’s easy to make!


  • 3 frozen bananas, cut into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter, or any nut butter of choice
  • 1/4 cup almonds, cut in half
  • dark chocolate, either in chips or bars broken into pieces*


In a food processor (or blender), place frozen banana pieces and almond butter, blend until a fairly smooth consistency stopping every now and then to scrape down the sides and push the mixture to the bottom of the processor.

Serve in bowls and top with, or incorporate, the chocolate pieces and almonds while blending, use as much as you like. 

Serves 2 – 3

Enjoy right away as a soft serve or freeze to harden like ice cream. To freeze, store in sealed freezer-safe containers. It will take about 6 hours to fully harden. Will last for up to 2 – 3 months.


Enjoy this nut-free. For those with nut allergies, substitute the nut butter with sunflower butter (or sun butter) and omit the chopped almonds.

To make 100% raw use raw cocoa chips…find the recipe here.

Try adding a scoop or two of vanilla or chocolate flavor protein powder to really boost the nutritional profile!

If using a blender, you may need to add a splash or two of unsweetened almond milk as well to help get the mixture moving.
