With as little as 3 ingredients and in less than 5 minutes you can now have dessert for breakfast, afternoon tea or as a low fat, low sugar alternative to other dessert-time treats.

Similar to my LSA smoothie – Mr Chipconnoisseur’s weekend breakfast staple, but denser in consistency, the choc banana ice cream has become one of my favourites instant pleasures. And it definitely wowed the crowds at my first cooking demostration yesterday. As the last dish of the day, I have to say it was probably the one that impressed the most. The all-women class was amazed at how quick and simple this recipe was, and how tasty the result.

With the price of bananas around $15 a kilo in Australia at the moment, it may seem like an expesive dessert, but I often find sightly over ripe fruit discounted to $6 a kilo at our local supermarket. They freeze very well and it is actuall frozen bananas that make the ice cream so inatant. Select slightly over ripe fruit, then peel, slice and keep in a zip lock bag in the freezer for quick and convenient access any time.

I love it too, because it is so versatile. If you’re allergic to dairy or vegan, use lactose free milk such as soy, rice, oat or almond. If you would like to make the ice cream more creamy, add 1/4 of an avocado – it will add richness to it without altering the flavour.

3 Ingredient (Instant) Chocolate Banana Ice Cream
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
The basic recipe is full on flavour and only 3 ingredients. Consider adding other things like oats, linseed or avocado to make the ice cream more wholesome.
For the ice cream:
  • 2 bananas, peeled and frozen
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
Great things to add:
  • ¼ avocado
  • 2 tbsp malt powder
  • 2 tbsp oats or linseed
  • 2 tbsp protein powder of your choice
  • 2 tbsp crushed walnuts to top
  1. To make the ice cream: place all ingredients in a sturdy jug and blend using a stick blender. The ice cream will have the consistency of soft serve. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes if you prefer a slightly less runny consistency.

  1. I love these photos, just so nice. I’m not even a big banana guy and it’s making me want to whip out the blender.

  2. Sweet Life by Mel says:

    I LOVE this! My step daughter thinks it’s great. It’s also good with a tablespoon or two of peanut butter & honey 🙂

  3. Yum! Thanks for the ideas!

  4. Love the tip on the bananas, especially as they are just so expensive at the moment. You can’t go by a nominal ingredient, quick and easy recipe that is satisfying too.

    I am just like mr Chipconnoisseur, I don’t eat bananas straight up (the texture makes me a little gaggy actually), but I love the taste of them, and eat them almost any other way.

  5. Just like my mama used to make for us as kids and now me with my kids 🙂

  6. Spencer says:

    Yeah, loving that recipe. Its a shame bananas are so expensive at the moment though!

  7. Petra says:

    As soon as I get a house I am making this! Living out of hostels sucks for cooking!

  8. Oh my gosh! I’ve been looking for a recipe like this for quite a while! I absolutely must try this A.S.A.P.! Thank you so much for sharing!
