Easy to Make 2 Ingredients Ice Cream

It's raw. It's vegan. And you don't even need an ice cream maker! You can make your ice cream using a blender or a food processor. And it only takes a few minutes to make it.

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 frozen banana

  • Toss the ingredients into a bowl of your bender or a food processor and whiz until smooth and creamy. Work quickly or your ice cream will melt before your very eyes.
  • Using an ice cream scoop portion out the ice cream. Garnish with fresh blueberries and mint. Serve right away and enjoy in good company!

Tip: If you are using a very ripe banana, your ice cream should be sweet enough, but if you prefer it to be slightly sweeter, add a few drops of liquid stevia. You will be able to find frozen blueberries, but might have to freeze your own bananas. To do so, pick very ripe fruit, remove the peel and chop roughly. I find that unless you are using a Vitamix blender, chopped frozen bananas are easier to process and will not break your kitchen tools. Place chopped banana in a freezer-safe dish and freeze for a few hours or overnight.

Should your ice cream melt while you are processing it, transfer it into a freezer-safe container and place in a freezer and refrigerate until it sets. Once your ice cream is firm enough, remove the dish from the fridge, scoop out and serve.

This is a basic two-ingredient ice cream recipe that can easily be expanded. You can add raw cacao powder, vanilla extract, mint essence or other berries to change the flavor. Experiment. It really is fun!
