1 Ingredient Banana Soft Serve Recipe

We have a knack for making plants (i.e. kale smoothies) taste really f-ing good. We also consider creating crave-worthy desserts one of our fortes (see here, here, or here). Because according to us, healthy eating means eating what you want, when you want it, without a stomach ache, and without guilt. It also means saving room for dessert.

This recipe is a summer staple and a personal favorite. It’s super easy to make, dairy-free + vegan, 100 percent refined sugar-free, and absolutely melt in your mouth delicious. Plus, it contains just one simple ingredient: frozen bananas. Whip it up in less than 5 minutes and dessert (or breakfast?), sans stomach ache, is served.

1-Ingredient Banana Soft Serve

Makes: 1 bowl of delicious


2-3 frozen bananas


Chop up frozen bananas into small 1-2 inch pieces.
Add bananas to food processor.
Process on high until smooth & creamy like soft-serve ice cream (scraping the sides down as needed).
Scoop and serve.

This is insanely good naked and au natural, but mix-ins (like nut-butter and cacao nibs) and toppings (like raw chocolate magic sauce), are totally welcome.  

Notes from a non-chef:

Because this recipe contains just one ingredient, it will taste like bananas. If you don’t like the flavor of bananas, try adding 1-2 tablespoons of nut butter before or after blending. (Peanut butter goes great here.)

While you can use a high powered blender to make this, we think a food processor works much better.

To freeze bananas, start with overripe, spotty bananas (they’re much sweeter), peel, cut in half and freeze in a freezer safe bag or container.
