Recommended ingredients

I love this ice-cream because you need only a few ingredients to make it.  Also, this recipe contains no sugar, egg, and dairy products yet it has a superb taste! What more? It’s great for vegans and anyone who is allergic to dairy products.

To make this vegan almond ice-cream, I used frozen bananas for the base. I also reserved some of the bananas to make some milkshakes with banana flavors.

I used bananas for this recipe because it gives the ice-cream a smooth and rich texture similar to dairy products.

Also, it’s important to choose ripe bananas when making this vegan Almond ice cream but make sure the bananas aren’t overripe. 

Bananas are also a great source of potassium, fiber, vitamin C and B6.

Health benefits of bananas

​Good source  of vitamin B6​

A medium-sized banana provides about a quarter of your daily vitamin B6 needs.

Vitamin B6  helps with the following:

  • Produce red blood cells,
  • Metabolise carbohydrates and fats and turns them into energy,
  • Metabolise amino acids,
  • Removes unwanted chemicals from your liver and kidneys.

Good for the your skin

A medium-sized banana provides about 13% of your daily manganese needs. Manganese is responsible for collagen production. This protects your skin and other cells against damage from free radicals.

Provides energy

Bananas contain natural sugars like sucrose, fructose, and glucose. These natural sugars provide a fat and cholesterol-free source of energy.

This makes bananas ideal for midday snacks or breakfasts.
