Banana ice cream is a recipe that doesn’t need a lot of thinking. There’s no need to ponder on what flavor to make since the basic recipe (”nice cream’’ or ”banana soft serve”) is already everything an ice cream lover can wish for. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t experiment, right? I figured out almond butter and nice cream is a match made in heaven. All you need are frozen bananas and almond butter to create this delicious almond butter ice cream. Are you ready to enjoy a scoop (or two) of this high in antioxidants (oh yes!), guilt-free, creamy & sweet treat?
This ice cream is great if you love
✔️ the sweetness of Medjool dates
✔️ the sweetness of ripe bananas
✔️ the creaminess of almond butter
Cloves are incredibly powerful. I only use a tiny bit of grounded cloves (don’t overdo it!) to give this ice cream a punch of antioxidants (of all spices they contain a great level of antioxidants). Some researchers say the healthiest foods on earth (per weight) are cloves and oregano…I’m not sure whether that is completly true, but it’s certainly promising and yummy to add to this recipe.
I believe there is no need to tell you that it’s very simple to make this ice cream. So go get out your high speed blender! If you don’t own one you can try to add a bit of almond milk in your blender (the ice cream will be less firm then).
If you’re going to make this soft serve, don’t forget to share your creation with me on social media with #thegreencreator. I truly LOVE to see your pictures.

This delicious almond butter ice cream is a creamy, high in antioxidants, sweet, guilt-free ice cream that is a true treat!
- 4 peeled, frozen bananas
- 2 tablespoons unsalted creamy almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
- 4 washed Medjool dates (pit removed)
- a tiny dash of grounded cloves
- Place the frozen bananas in your blender and blend.
- At this point you can add either all or half of the almond butter.
- Add all the other ingredients to the blender and finish processing the ice cream until creamy and smooth.
- I saved half of the almond butter to swirl it into the ice cream when I served it.
- Scoop and enjoy!
Always use ripe bananas. Bananas are ripe when they have a deep yellow color and have little brown spots.
To freeze bananas you will need to peel them first and freeze them in a (glass) container.
