Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream


dairy free ice cream

When it comes to summer eats, there is nothing quite like ice cream to cool you off. For many people, especially those who can’t have dairy, this is not an option. With myself, I am trying to maintain a better diet and the sugar free options for ice cream are just really not to my liking because they contain chemical sweeteners and they just really don’t taste that great with all their preservatives. I decided to try making a dairy free, sugar free protein packed version of ice cream that would not only be refreshing like ice cream but be healthy, too. I discovered the benefits of almond milk when I saw that Silk brand had come out with Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber and I was very happy to learn that I could use it to make my ice cream treat. #SilkAlmondBlends are perfect for making any summer time treat better!

This recipe is made for an ice cream maker, but you could do it without if you wanted to just freeze and stir it yourself on a regular basis. Also, note that because it contains no dairy, it will get very hard when placed in the freezer. If you want it softer, just run it through a blender for a minute with a little bit of Silk Almond Milk. This ice cream is not only delicious (my 11 year old said it was “sooooooo good and it tastes like chocolate covered bananas!”) but packed with fiber and protein!

For an extra boost in taste and texture, top with some chocolate chips! You can afford to with all the nutrients I read on the carton of Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber. I saw that it has 50% more calcium than dairy milk and has 5 g of protein and 5g of fiber.

  1. We are diehard Silk fans in our house. Their Coconut Milk is AMAZING! 🙂 I use it in smoothies and “milkshakes” all the time. This sounds divine! Definitely will have to try ito ut myself soon!

    1. I was amazed at home much I didn’t miss dairy in this recipe. My kiddo thought it had milk in it too. I am so happy I can make a better version now with Silk!

    I grew up with whole milk and it was a HUGE shock to make the switch to 1%. I am not sure if I can take another switch, but your recipe sounds amazing and I would totally love it with some whole milk 😉

    1. You honestly do not taste the difference here. I am transitioning from whole milk to other types of milk (except for in certain recipes) and neither myself nor my totally cow’s milk loving daughter could tell a difference!

  3. Those are a great combination.. sounds like something me and the kids would like..

    1. It was a hit here! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. This looks delicious and I am a chocolate addict! I definitely would buy this and indulge when I could!

  5. Oh BOO I can’t do Peanut Butter/Peanuts (Death will ensue) but I am sure I could do something like this with soy butter/almond butter/ nutella!

    1. I am sure any nut butter would work and nutella would be excellent!

  6. Silk has the best Almond milk! I just bought some the other day!

    1. I was amazed at how great it came out since almond milk doesn’t have the same fat as cow’s milk does, but it was really good! It was kind of like Ice milk if you have ever had that.

  9. Woah! I’m coming over! I’m drooling at my laptop here. Getting these ingredients the next time I’m at the store because this looks amazing and my husband loves his peanut butter.
