3 Healthy Ice Cream Recipes

If there’s anyone that has an unhealthy obsession with ice cream, it’s me. I think my sweet tooth runs in the family….and ice cream is one of my top dessert choices, my favourite being gelato mmm! I actually used to work at an ice cream shop, it was my very first job and I made ice cream from scratch as well as ice cream cakes! It was kind of like a free for all with the ice cream and there was a point that I realized I had gained close to 10lbs because of it LOL. Thankfully I don’t work there anymore, but to cater to my ice cream obsession I’ve found some healthy ice cream recipes that I can make at home. The images in this post are the banana Nutella ice cream that I recently made (PS. It was delicious!).

#1 Nutella Frozen Yogourt

Ingredients

  • 2 cups yogurt of choice
  • 2/3 cup nutella
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (don’t use if you’re using vanilla yogourt)
  • 1/4 tsp or less of salt
  • 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • pinch pure stevia OR 1/3 cup
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • optional chocolate chips

Blend all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, until completely smooth. Freeze the mixture in ice cube trays and then re-blend (including chocolate chips) using an electric blender. Or you can transfer the blended mixture to an airtight container, freeze, and stir well every hour for 3 hours.

#2 Coconut Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup canned coconut milk (use full fat canned coconut milk, not light)
  • 1/2 cup additional coconut milk OR milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup sweetener of choice, such as sugar or pure maple syrup
  • pinch stevia or 1 additional tbsp sweetener of choice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Blend all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, until completely smooth. Freeze the mixture in ice cube trays and then re-blend (including chocolate chips) using an electric blender. Or you can transfer the blended mixture to an airtight container, freeze, and stir well every hour for 3 hours.

#3 Banana Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2-3 overripe, frozen bananas
  • 2-4 tbsp optional milk of choice (I like coconut milk)
  • pinch salt
  • Nutella (optional, but its amazing)

Start with bananas that are turning brown. Peel and cut into large pieces, then freeze in an airtight bag or container. Put 2-3 frozen bananas into a blender or food processor—add a pinch of salt and 2-4 tbsp milk of choice for smoother blending if desired. Blend until smooth!
