Recipe (Dairy-free): Chocolate Ice “Cream”

Who doesn’t love a bit of ice cream? Unfortunately, it’s loaded with sugar AND dairy, which is a problem if you’re dairy intolerant.

Here, I have for you a simple, tasty and nutrient-rich ‘ice-cream’. Cacao is raw cocoa and it’s loaded with polyphenols and antioxidants, which are great for your gut bacteria and they’re also anti-cancer.

Bananas are a versatile old fruit. Not only do I use them to make this fabulous ‘ice-cream’ but I also love them in my delicious protein pancakes.

Whilst this is miles healthier than traditional ice-cream, you should still stick to the serving size.

Serves 2


  • 3 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 2 tsp cacao powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp almond butter


Place frozen bananas in food processor and blend until smooth (a few minutes). You may have to stop a few times to scrape the sides.

Add cacao powder and almond butter and blend until mixed well.

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: You can make this in advance and freeze in an airtight container.
