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, this super quick vegan ice cream is ready, and no need for an 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 my blackberry 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!

Tried the recipe! My ice cream turned into a solid ice cube instead, how could I get that ice cream creamy texture?
Oh no! Sorry to hear that Scarlett 🙁 I'm not sure what it went wrong... what kind of blender did you use? I use a powerful Vitamix and never had issues! Perhaps if you use a less powerful blender you could add a little yogurt to smooth things up?
Thanks Andrea for replying! After I blend the mixture, it becomes smoothie (liquid). So I freeze as per instruction (freeze overnight), in the next morning, the liquid smoothie turns into solid ice cube.
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.
Awww, I absolutely love cherries, and I think they work wonderful for this ice cream 🙂 Thank you for sharing your chocolate tip, totally genius!
This looks so delicious, Andrea! 🙂 Love your pics! I still can't believe how easy it is to make nicecream!
Thank you so much Sina :)! I love that's so easy to make, cause I happen to have ice cream cravings all the time 😀
