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)

Hello, my name is Katie and I am on a real food and unprocessed living journey. I share my journey on my blog, Girl Meets Nourishment. I am getting back to the basics preparing food the old-fashioned way and discovering new ideas for a healthy life. This veteran vegetarian of nine years now proudly eat lots of butter, takes cod liver oil, drinks kombucha, eats grass-fed meats, and all that is nourishing. This journey has opened me up to a new world filled with the wisdom of generations before me. I want to try these out-of-the-ordinary old-fashioned recipes and make them into my modern nourishment – making real food from real things in real time. I am also getting back to the basics with what we use in our everyday life, making our home as unprocessed as possible.

    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!!!
