Healthy banana ice cream with Greek yogurt

Healthy banana ice cream with Greek yogurt

If you’re craving a refreshing snack or dessert for these warm summer days, I have the perfect recipe for you. This healthy banana ice cream is so yummy that I really had a hard time leaving some of it for the pictures and not eating it all while preparing it. It’s so sweet and delicious!

This healthy ice cream is low sugar (sugar free if you use sugar free dark chocolate) and packed with protein thanks to the Greek yogurt and peanut butter. For a vegan version, replace the Greek yogurt with any other plant yogurt. My recommendation is using coconut yogurt, as the consistency is very similar to the regular Greek yogurt.


I started eating this ice cream back when I just started my healthy journey. I loved it! It’s such a delicious alternative to normal ice cream. With only 4 ingredients you get a sweet and creamy healthy ice cream. You can eat it for breakfast, as a snack, or to accompany your healthy desserts.

As most of my recipes, this is a very easy dessert to make. However, I do have a few previous tips to give you:

  • Use ripe bananas. The riper the banana, the sweeter the ice cream will be.
  • Slice the bananas and freeze them at least 5 hours before you make the ice cream. I usually freeze them the day before.
  • Use a food processor. The normal blenders are not made for solid foods. Otherwise you’ll struggle getting a smooth texture.
  • As I mentioned before, for a vegan version use a plant based yogurt.

Now we’re ready to start right off with the recipe:

Ingredients (2 serving):

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 50 gr of dark chocolate 85% cocoa

  5. Mix with a rubber spatula (or whatever tool you have).
  6. Place it in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
  7. Ready to be served.
  8. Add some topings. I added ground almonds and a few blueberries.

Enjoy!
