Raw Chocolate/Banana Soft Serve Ice Cream

I have seen recipes before using frozen bananas as the base for the ice cream, always been sceptical, until I decided to try it out. WOW! Was it one of the best tries ever, so creamy and rich, never what I would have expected of a frozen banana ice cream. So here is my recipe, please try it out, even if your like me...a little sceptical at first.

You will need: (makes 1 large serving or 2 small)
2 Ripe Bananas
2 tbs Raw Cocoa Powder (dark european style)
1-2 tsp Raw Vanilla Sugar (use a few drops raw vanilla essence if vanilla sugar isn't available)
Optional: 1 tbs Golden Syrup or Raw Agave Nectar/Syrup

  • Cut the bananas into slices and spread them in a single layer in a freezer bag or between two layers of cling film. Leave them in the freezer for 1-3 hours.
  • Once your bananas are frozen add them and the rest of the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Serve straight away!
  • Enjoy.

This ice cream can be altered into all different flavours, try adding chocolate chunks or fresh berries.


  1. This looks delicious. Ughhh must try now! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. This is the way I have been enjoying vegan soft serve for some time. I add in some soy milk though and will refreeze if needed. Thanks!

  5. Just made for the littles. They loved it and gobbled it down. I got a taste too...wish they hadn't liked it so much. None left over for me, :-).

    1. It is very addictive ;) Hope you get some next time.
