Cool off this summer with this three ingredient, no churn Strawberry Banana Ice Cream.
You guys!! Happy First Day of SUMMER! I just got back from vacation and I feel so rejuvenated! It feels good!!
I can’t believe what one week of relaxing did for my body, soul and spirit. So if you need to destress, take my advice and go hang out by a pool for a week!
So about this “ice cream.” I know, it is not your traditional custard type of ice cream. And it is something I just happened upon last summer. Yes I’ve been holding out on you since last summer!
Anyways, I was making a smoothie one day and threw in some bananas and frozen raspberries. It was so thick that I thought, wow this could be ice cream. I also saw how last year the big rage was making ice cream from just frozen bananas. And honestly I was kind of obsessed with that as well.
Now that it is all hot and humid again I thought it was time to start freezing bananas again. But what is kind of great about this, is that you can make it all year round! No need to wait for summer.
There are a few simple steps to making this:
- Freeze 3 bananas for about an hour.
- Slice up 1/2 pound strawberries, hulled and cleaned.
- To boost up the creaminess of this, I also decided to whip up some heavy cream and add in a splash of Rodelle Organic Vanilla Extract.
Also to make the first day of Summer super special a group of bloggers and I are bringing you #icecreamweek. This included a fabulous giveaway that you can find below with some super sweet prizes! Don’t forget to enter and check out all of the other amazing ice cream recipes! ENJOY!

Amanda @ Cookie Named Desire
You know what’s funny? I made my first “smoothie ice cream” just a few weeks ago using banana as my base. I also added avocado for extra creaminess and it was amazing. This is just so simply and healthier than many other versions. Definitely something I won’t feel bad about giving my daughter! Thank you for joining me for Ice Cream Week!!
That sounds SO good! Thanks for hosting Amanda!
