Healthy 3 Ingredient Ice Cream


There is a frozen yogurt shop close to my house that my girls LOVE going to.  They ask to go almost every time we drive by.  This place is a self-serve type place and the cups that you use are HUGE. There are about 20 flavors to choose from, and so of course my girls think that they need to fill up their cups with a bunch of different flavors.  They get all excited, and then we sit down and they take about 3 bites and then they just want to play. They leave their huge cups of frozen yogurt (that contain flavor combinations I would never eat) to melt and waste.

So the other day I was drinking some chocolate soy milk (yum its one of my favorite treats) and I thought – it would be so easy to whip up some ‘ice cream’ using this and it would be delicious! I came up with 2 different recipes and they each took me less than 5 minutes.  And then I could give my girls a small portion with no waste, no added sugar, and added nutrients!

Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

We have two recipes of 3 ingredient ice cream on this post- one rich and creamy, one light and refreshing!

The key ingredient in both of these recipes is a frozen banana.  I couldn’t believe how smooth and creamy just blending up a frozen banana by itself could be.  I made mine in a food processor, but if you had a really strong blender, you could probably do it in that also.  I blended:

  • 1 1/2 frozen bananas
  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 2-3 Tbsp Chocolate Soy Milk

That is it!  This will make about 2 servings. Blend until the consistency is smooth and creamy.  When you are done the texture should be similar to soft-serve ice cream.  If you like it a little more frozen, place in a dish or freezer safe tupperware and freeze for an hour or so.  This is SO good.  Sweet, creamy – way better than most ice cream I have had and much healthier!

Raspberry and Cream Banana Ice Cream

We have two recipes of 3 ingredient ice cream on this post- one rich and creamy, one light and refreshing!

To make this, blend in a food processor:

  • 1 1/2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup vanilla Greek yogurt

Blend until smooth and creamy.  Eat immediately or place in the freezer for a harder consistency.  This flavor is creamy and delicious, but also refreshing!

Both of these recipes are going to give your kids a lot more nutrients than just regular ice cream and without all of the added sugar! Need more healthy ice cream?

Such simple treats! These are great recipes not just for the kids but us adults too. A great way to satisfy that “craving sweets” with something healthy and delicious.

Just wondering if almond or coconut yogurt would work in the raspberry ice cream…. my daughter can’t have dairy. LOVE all of your recipes… I want to make them all! But I’m starting with one of these ice creams!

These are the great recipe and I think that my kids and my husband are going to love these dishes. I am going to try all these dishes and I am going to start with the raspberry and cream banana ice cream.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Hi, sounds yum and can’t wait to make it! Just wondering, how do I freeze banana? Do I peel first and cut into pieces? Or leave banana in it’s peel when put in the freezer, then only peel when already frozen ans ready to use?


Do you have a dairy allergy? You can always try almond milk, coconut milk, or rice milk as a substitute.
