Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Chocolate ice cream is classic! It’s easy to say that chocolate puts happiness in everything and ice cream is definitely not an exception. It thrills and gratifies anyone, both kids and adults. Some even can’t simply live without chocolate. 

Some experts are also against sweets, to which chocolate is often mentioned. However, desserts without the taste of chocolate would just be sad. Thankfully, these days, we are learning that chocolate is not that bad at all. It has health benefits too, for example, antioxidants. Best of all, since the base is banana, it’s like having your favorite banana split too!

Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Bananas, cocoa, and almond butter are nutritious ingredients. Those 3 are just what you need when you use a blender. If what you have is a food processor, you would just need to add almond milk (still a healthy option) to mix them together easily. Just like with banana split, you can top it off with healthy toppings like frozen or fresh berries, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate chips or chunks, and more. The list just goes on and on.

This Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe is so awesome that you might find yourself having it on repeat. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

A great recipe especially if you love chocolates (and even if you don’t!) This gluten-free recipe only calls for three ingredients if you’re using a blender. Otherwise, if you only have access to a food processor, an additional almond milk is all you’ve got to add for a creamy, chocolatey ice cream.

  • 4 ripe bananas peeled, sliced, and frozen
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • ¼ cup almond milk only if using a food processor


  • If you’re using a blender, combine bananas, cocoa powder, and almond butter and blend until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes, scraping the sides and pushing the bananas down using a spatula and/or the plunger as needed.
  • If you’re using a food processor, on the other hand, simply add the almond milk, a tablespoon at a time, after combining the first 3 ingredients, and process until smooth.
  • Serve and enjoy, or freeze for at least 2 hours if you prefer the ice cream to be firm enough to scoop into cones.


  • Feel free to sprinkle with healthy toppings such as frozen or fresh berries, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and more. Or, you may add some dark chocolate chunks or chips to sprinkle on top as well.
