This guilt-free 2-ingredient blackberry ice cream is the ultimate vegan dessert for every ice cream lover!

Did you know a banana can turn almost any fruit into ice cream in a matter of seconds? Yes, and it’s awesome. Slice and freeze some ripe bananas, then mix them in a food processor together with fresh blackberries. Pulse until the mixture is creamy, scraping down the mix with a spatula when necessary.


Frozen sliced ripe bananas add a creamy texture and a natural sweetness, so you can skip extra sugars and dairy products. This means this ice cream is totally vegan, fat-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and anything else. Only pure guilt-free pleasure for your tastebuds.


There you go, dessert is ready, and no need of ice cream maker. You’re welcome!

Serve the ice cream on its own in pretty cups or on ice cream cones. I’ve slightly dipped the cones into melted dark chocolate and topped the ice cream with some coconut flakes. But you can also add chopped hazelnuts, flaked almonds, and even pistachios if you like. I say go for it!

    Andrea, this is similar to an ice cream I make except I use bing cherries instead of the blackberries (and if I’m feeling particular naughty, I will add some good quality powdered chocolate). Can’t wait to try your version.
