Here is an easy recipe for a healthier version of ice cream (banana ice cream, nice cream) that you can make yourself at home. You’ll only need a food processor (no ice cream machine is needed). And the recipe has only two ingredients! It’s a good way to cut down refined sugar from your diet and still enjoy your meals (which is our goal of course). I’ll promise, it’s delicious. :)
Homemade Banana Ice Cream with Blueberries
Did you know you can make the simplest healthy ice cream made with just one ingredient, a banana? Just simply by freezing and blending it. I also added my favorite berries to the recipe.
Ingredients for the banana ice cream
2 ripe sweet bananas
1/2 cup of blueberries
How to make nice cream
- Peal off the bananas and slice them into chunks. Place the slices in a bowl and freeze overnight (or at least for 2 hours).
- Simply blend the frozen banana slices with a powerful blender or preferably a food processor for a couple minutes and see how it transforms into a smooth creamy ice cream-like texture. You might need to scrape down the sides of your food processor a few times.
- Mix the berries with the banana for a nice colour and taste.
- You can eat it right away when it’s still soft and creamy, or you can put in a freezer for a 2-3 hours until it’s firm.
Enjoy. :) You can leave some berries for decorating your ice cream, and share your ice cream bowl pics on Instagram by tagging us @ihanawellness and using hastag #ihanawellness.

You can also try other banana ice cream recipes (with dark chocholate, chopped nuts…).
It’s a good idea not to waste food to freeze it instead of throwing food away. If you ever have overripe bananas, just slice them and put them in your freezer for a later use.
