I scream, you scream, we all scream for Dairy Free Ice Cream: Austin Chillout Recipe

After moving to Austin, Texas from San Francisco, California, the biggest change was the summer weather. I knew what to expect and had lived in it before since attending undergrad at University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, however it was still a huge adjustment.

Typically San Francisco summers are cold, windy, and gloomy and then in the fall its hot and enjoyable. Yes, its the opposite of most summer climates. Similar to the Southern Hemisphere versus the Northern Hemisphere seasonal weather.

Anyhow, to help me adjust to the extremely hot 104F degree weather, I began to eat more ice cream.

It was tough to find a tasty gluten free, dairy free ice cream option at the store, so I thought about making my own and here it was happened.


Serves 2

3 bananas, sliced and frozen

2 teaspoon cacao powder

1 Tablespoon almond butter or Nut Butter*

½ cup Good Karma Flaxmilk or non-dairy milk


Place frozen bananas in a food processor and blend until smooth (a few minutes). You may have to stop a few times to scrape the sides.

Add cacao powder, milk, and almond butter and blend until mixed well. Place in a plastic serving bowl.

Place bowl with a lid in freezer IF you have any leftovers.

My husband loved the recipe so much I had to fight him to get a scoop from the bowl.

*Nut Butter recipe can be found in my cookbook.
