My youngest Chip* turned two today! We like having ice cream with cake at home, so Art and I made this ice cream together. It is so easy. All you need is a food processor and lots of time to freeze your ingredients. Even easier with a Vitamix! The strawberry banana ice cream can be made using the ice cream function on the Vitamix. There is no sugar in the recipe. So, this is a healthy treat. I would not feel guilty if I had to feed this ice cream to a baby old enough to wean! The texture is creamy and icy at the same time. The strawberries give it a nice tanginess to it.

There are no eggs used in this strawberry banana ice cream recipe. I have heard that eggs can be hard to find these days at the supermarket. Flour has also been hard to find — particularly unbleached flour. There are plenty of recipes to use up ripe bananas other than banana bread. My best source for unbleached flour is Bulk Food Box! You can click on my referral link to get $15 off your first order.

When it gets to be too warm to bake banana bread, you can try this cool treat. No food colouring was used in this recipe. You can opt to add your sprinkles or chips of choice after making the ice cream batter. After all, sprinkles do make life more cheerful. You can also use this recipe to make popsicles!

  1. I love the sound of this! Just that I try to do with the dairy so I suppose I would still have a slushy, less creamy dessert or treat. sounds yum!

  2. Perfect way to use up over ripe bananas and it’s such a simple way to enjoy ice cream without an ice cream maker! Thanks for the recipe, I will be making this this week 🙂
