Banana Cinnamon Ice Cream – Vegan

I looove ice cream, almost as much as I love cheese. Last year we bought an ice cream machine at Costco and spent the whole summer making ice cream. This year I’ve been on a bit of an ice cream funk. All the ice cream alternatives without dairy suck, and I just can’t seem to get into sorbet. This banana cinnamon ice cream though changed my mind.

A couple of weeks ago I visited Pino Gelato in Hilton Head and I had already mentally prepared myself to eat sorbet when I noticed they had banana sorbetto. I was skeptical at first, but with the first bite I was won over. It was light, yet smooth and creamy. It was sorbet’s fatty cousin! That’s when I knew I had to recreate it at home.

Ok, so as you can already see from the pictures my ice cream is brown, which might be unappealing to some. I could’ve added lemon juice to prevent it from oxidizing, but I didn’t want to risk altering the flavor. It is made with bananas (of course), homemade almond milk, a pinch of cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla. That’s it! Pure, simple, and delicious!

The Recipe: Banana Cinnamon Ice Cream

Regular ice cream has a lot of fat, which is why it is still somewhat soft even though it’s frozen. This ice cream has almost no fat at all, so it will become very hard once frozen. Be sure to take it out of the freezer a couple of minutes before eating to let it soften.

    Are there any alternatives if we do not have an ice cream machine?

    • Freeze all of the bananas and place them in the blender with the cinnamon and vanilla. Add almond milk 1 tbsp. at a time until your blender can turn it into an ice cream. If your blender is not powerful enough to do this, the other option is freezing all the bananas and adding the rest of the ingredients to the blender, blend until smooth. Licuado de plátano super frio:)

  • I’ve never had ice cream like that before. Sounds good.

  • OMG This looks AHmazing.

  • YUM!

  • This looks delicious! Have you tried Coconut Bliss ice cream? It’s made with coconut milk and is pretty good – and vegan friendly.

    • I haven’t tried it. Thanks for the tip.

    I am so trying this with a little twist! I’ll post it on my site and try to link you in it! 😀

  • Can’t wait to give it a try. It looks delicious! Yum!

    • Thanks for reading!

    • Thanks for stopping by.

    • I love cheese, and it’s great to meet people with the same interests.

  • Oh my goodness, that looks and sounds delicious! Thank you for liking my post and leading me to your blog 🙂

  • This looks very nice and a great treat l will try. I have a cold press juicer and make my ice cream by putting it through frozen with a variety of other fruits. The kids really love it and it is quick to make also. The addition of cinnamon and vanilla sounds delicious so l might add that next time.

    Someone’s comment about coconut made me think that some coconut oil or milk would go great with the banana flavor. Very tropical.
