ingredients for raw chocolate banana ice cream.

Raw Vegan Banana Ice Cream Ingredients

  • Bananas – freeze the ripest bananas you can, they will be sweet enough so you don’t need to any sweetener.
  • Cocoa powder – use your favorite, whether its raw cacao, regular cocoa, or dutch chocolate. This batch was processed with dutch cocoa, which makes it ultra dark and chocolatey, but typically I use raw cacao powder.
  • Splash of non-dairy milk or water – can be any type of plant based milk or Vegan Cream, preferably unsweetened, this will help get the frozen mixture moving.

Top Tips

  • Add protein. Add 2 – 4 tablespoons of nut butter, such as peanut, almond, cashew, or sunflower, for a nice does of protein. It will also make it ultra creamy!

Scoop into individual bowl/s, top with fruit, nuts, cocoa nibs or coconut flakes. Enjoy right away.

Serves one generously, with enough to share if you like. :)


A splash or two of milk or water will help the mixture move a little better when blending. For completely raw, use homemade plant milk, or a splash of water is fine too!

To Freeze: Keep this ice cream in the freezer by storing in an airtight freezer safe container. Freeze for at least six hours or overnight for a hardened ice cream, let thaw 10 min or so before scooping. Double this recipe and freeze for convenience.

Keep those bananas! Instead of throwing out bananas I always freeze them for making smoothies later and this will be a new reason to pull out a frozen banana or two. Doesn’t get much simpler that this.
