DIY; Healthy Blender Ice Cream

July 18, 2013

healthy ice cream 1

Oh yes, you read that title right. Healthy Ice Cream made in your blender (or food processor)! Did I mention it's easy to make, gluten free, and vegan? Because it certainly is. And did I mention there are three different equally yummy varieties that I've come up with? Because there definitely are. Oh and yes, since I notoriously LOVE mason jars, I'm serving this frosty treat up in one!
Chocolate Almond Milk Ice Cream, you are my new best friend.

I am not a huge sweets person, I never get dessert in the dining hall at school (although I have friends that do every night.. and they're still as skinny as my pinky), and we never have junk food or desserts lying around at home. I do love making cakes from scratch for special occasions, but my biggest weakness; Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt. I just can't say no. However if I'm craving vanilla and something fruity, non fat vanilla yogurt with fruit satisfies that craving real fast. But chocolate is a whole other story. If I'm craving chocolate ice cream or frozen yogurt, it is unstoppable. Well.. that was until recently. I made this recipe on a complete whim and it came out so wonderfully.
So wonderful, I thought I'd share so you could make it as well;

Ingredients & Supplies;
Chocolate Almond Milk
Peanut Butter or Nutella or Banana
Blender or Food Processor
Ice Cube Tray

Recipe;
-Take Your ice cube tray and fill it up with the Chocolate Almond Milk.
-Put tray in freezer until frozen thoroughly.
(One tray of Chocolate Almond Milk Cubes = one mason jar full (standard, 1 pint size))
-Once frozen put the cubes in your blender or food processor.
(I used a food processor because my blender is not so great.)
- Blend until completely chunk free. It should have a sort of icy frothy consistency.
-Add your frozen (and chopped) banana, or a large spoonful of either Peanut Butter or Nutella.
-And blend blend blend until smooth and creamy.
-Spoon the mixture into a jar and pop in the freezer for a half hour to an hour so it solidifies a bit.
-Take it out and enjoy your guilt free dessert!

  1. Another one for lime "ice cream" is
    2 avocadoes
    1/4 c plain almond or coconut milk
    3/4 c lime juice
    dash vanilla
    pinch of salt
    1/2 c coconut oil
    Blend it all together and freeze in ice cube trays or in an ice cream maker!

  6. We are all about the sweets in our house.. which was one of the reasons last year I started making my own ice cream. Though not in a blender (need to try this) but sans ice cream maker.

  18. I LOVE using almond milk to make a milkshake! It is so much creamier than regular milk in my opinion (well unless you use whole milk.) I was actually planning to post a similar recipe for a healthy(er) milkshake with almond milk! Great minds think alike. :) I definitely want to try out your recipe though!
