Nutty Monkey “Ice Cream” (Dairy-Free, Paleo)

Nutty Monkey Ice Cream Small

Now that the weather is getting warmer and the dessert treats are getting a little cooler, boy do I have a cool treat for you! Can I tell you how tasty my Nutty Monkey “Ice Cream” recipe is? It’s only made with 3 ingredients – and it’s dairy-free! How is this possible? With a little bit of creativity I tell you.

Instead of a typical ice cream base, this creamy treat is made with frozen bananas blended up in a food processor. I elevated that creaminess with a hit of chocolate chips and diced raw almonds – that is where the Nutty Monkey comes in. Kids and those kids-at-heart will love this and any other who desires a delectable, cool treat on a hot summer evening!
