Banana Almond Ice Cream with Coconut Caramel Sauce


It’s unbelievable how four (power food) ingredients add up to this: an amazing cream-less ice cream full of protein and potassium. Top it off with just a drizzle of the caramel sauce and sea salt flakes… the experience is transcendental.

  • 5-6 ripe bananas
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon almond or coconut milk
  • ½ cup Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips

Banana Almond Ice Cream Preparation

  1. Peel bananas, cut into chunks and freeze, about 2 hours. Remove from freezer, place into blender or food processor with almond butter and coconut or almond milk. Blend until very smooth and stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Pour into container and freeze until solid.
  3. When ready to serve, scoop into a cup, bowl, or gluten-free cone.  For an added treat, drizzle a tablespoon of caramel sauce over ice cream, along with flaked sea salt to taste.
