Looking for a treat to beat the heat? We love anything with cold, but with allergies in our home, finding dairy-free desserts isn’t easy. So a long time ago I began freezing fruit and experimenting. You literally can make any “ice cream” out of frozen bananas, even dairy-free strawberry ice cream!
Hi friends, my name is Kristen Hewitt of Mommy in Sports I’m a sports reporter by night and a mommy, well day and night! On my site I share stories about sports, parenting, and healthy living. And though I love to bake and plan parties like Leslie’s amazing creations, sometimes we just like to keep things simple. I’m so excited Leslie asked me to share a recipe with you, because I’m all about making tasty yet healthy food.
When we found out our oldest had a dairy allergy as a baby I was devastated. I love to bake, eat ice cream, and pizza, how were we to give up dairy? Well I’ll tell you, it was surprisingly simple! I too have cut dairy, and find that we still can have delicious desserts. You are going to be astounded at how few ingredients you need to create such big flavor!
Start by freezing your fruit! (or just buy some!) I buy strawberries like crazy and wash and freeze them throughout the summer. I also freeze bananas for smoothies, so we had everything on hand to make a cool treat for the kiddos.
Then you just use your food processor and blend together frozen strawberries, bananas, coconut milk, vanilla, and if you need it super sweet you can use coconut crystals. But honestly, the result is so naturally perfect I find you don’t need the sugar. And the great thing about this recipe is you can add more bananas if you like that flavor more, or more coconut milk if you want a creamier texture! I use minimal milk though and prefer a sorbet. This is how it looks after a few hours in the freezer!
But sometimes we eat it straight out of the food processor like soft serve. Delish huh?! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! And please follow along on Facebook for more healthy yet yummy recipes! Hope to see you over at Mommy in Sports soon!

How are you beating the summer heat this year?
Thanks for sharing! I stumbled for yoU!
I love this recipe. The full fat coconut milk makes it so creamy it really does taste like ice cream.

Yum! This is perfect for my daughter, who is also allergic to dairy!
This is so yummy!! I randomly did a recipe like this a few weeks ago and blended frozen fruit makes the most delish frozen snacks!!
Mm.. I can’t imagine telling the difference between this and a dairy version. Or maybe this would win! Creamy, cold, and fruity is all I need.
Yummy this looks so great! Do you have any other options that can replace the strawberries, sadly I’m allergic to them but I don’t know what fruit to change it with. Great post by the way!

Lindsey of This Miss Cooks says
This looks so tasty! I’ve made “nice cream” before but I haven’t tried it with coconut milk. I bet it pairs really well with the fruit flavor!
I love the idea of adding coconut milk! I never thought of that. I have a thing called a Yonanas – basically it’s a device specifically for making “ice cream” out of frozen bananas. I’m definitely going to try adding in coconut milk. Thank you!
Wow. These look really yummy! 🙂
