Dairy Free Banana Vanilla Ice Cream

By: Dr. Natalie McCulloch ND

For anyone who knows me, you know I love summer and ice cream!  I also don’t eat dairy, so I Iove when I come across a recipe that tates like the read deal.  I know we are entering into fall, but I am still holding on to what’s left of summer and think this would be a great alternative at thanksgiving with your apple pie. I hope you enjoy this recipe.


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 5 bananas
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • a 2″ piece of vanilla bean


  • Place the coconut milk in a glass container and put it in the freezer.  Peel the bananas and put them in the freezer as well.  Freeze for 5-6 hours.
  • Remove ingredients from the freezer (run hot water over the coconut milk if needed to losen from container) and place all the ingredients in a blender.
  • Blend on high until creamy.
  • Store in a freezer safe container and Enjoy!
