Today’s recipe: No ice-cream maker vegan ice-cream

Finally a healthy dessert that will fit all dietary restrictions (no gluten AND vegan) while pleasing even the most picky eaters. Oh and did I mention it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare?!

I know what you’re thinking: vegan ice-cream cannot be any good. This recipe uses coconut milk and is as satisfying as any store-bought icre-cream, only much healthier. (It’s actually a twist from the one-ingredient banana ice cream recipe from here).


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • Coconut milk, as needed (can be replaced by regular milk or cream)
  • Sugar to taste (the fruits we get in Jakarta are so good we don’t need to add any)
  • Optional: berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries), peanut butter, Nutella, honey, chocolate chips, powdered ginger, cardamom or cinnamon…

Preparation – 10 minutes

  • Peel and chop the fruits
  • Place in the freezer overnight
  • Blend all the ingredients and tadaaa!

If you like a soft consistency, eat straight. If you like a regular ice-cream consistency, freeze it again. Easy!
