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!

The Players

The How-To

1. In a food processor, add your frozen bananas. Process until it turns in a smooth, soft-serve type texture (takes about 1 to 2 minutes).

2. Mix in diced almonds and chocolate chips, and sprinkle some on top as a garnish.

3. Enjoy!

**Note: If you would like a firmer “ice cream”, after you prep the bananas and mix-ins – place into a freezer safe container and put into the freezer for another 1 to 2 hours.

(makes 2 to 3 servings)

    You can also add to the creaminess and nutritional value by mixing in some full fat organic coconut milk that’s been chilled in the fridge. Coconut oil/milk is so good for you!

    I just went dairy-free because of eczema reasons, and I am grieving (I’m a WI girl who puts cheese on everything, after all)! This recipe may take away some of the pain. Looks super easy too. Thanks for sharing!

    Would be perfect for a Sunday afternoon treat. Anything that has a combination of bananas, almond and chocolate is perfect for me.

    I did 5 frozen bannanas in a blender with a can of full fat coconut milk, about a teaspoon of vannila extract, and about 1/3 cups coca powder (unsweetened), blended it really well. It tasted just like a wendys frosty, my whole family had some and it was awesome!!!
