Healthy Cookie Dough Ice Cream Recipe

This easy, vegan, grain-free, and refined sugar-free cookie dough ice cream recipe is healthier! I love that this fruit-based homemade ice cream has hidden health benefits. 


– 4 large ripe bananas frozen – ¼ cup full-fat canned coconut milk optional – ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract optional Almond Flour Cookie Dough: – 1 cup finely ground almond flour – 4 to 5 Tbsp melted coconut oil* – ¼ tsp sea salt – ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips


Place four overripe bananas in a large freezer bag. In order to blend bananas, some people slice them. I break them in half. 

Step 1

I recommend small banana slices for food processor blending without a tamper. Fully freeze bananas for at least 4 hours.  

Step 2

To make edible cookie dough balls, mix almond flour, melted coconut oil, sea salt, and chocolate chips in a small bowl. Crumbling? Add another tablespoon of coconut oil. Grease is normal in the mixture. 

Step 3

Place small cookie dough balls on a plate. Freeze cookie dough balls for 30 minutes. They can be frozen for weeks in airtight containers.

Step 4

Put frozen bananas in a high-speed blender and cover to make ice cream. After inserting the tamper through the lid, start the blender on low. Blend the bananas on low for a few seconds before speeding up. 

Step 5

Mash bananas in the blender blade with the tamper until smooth and creamy. Keep going if blending bananas takes time. It'll get easier as they soften. 

Step 6

If your blender struggles with bananas, add full-fat coconut milk. Use only ¼-⅓ cup. Serve banana ice cream with cookie dough chunks immediately for soft serve or freeze for conventional.  

Step 7

Stir cookie dough bites into banana ice cream base in a freezer-safe container (many people use a loaf pan) until evenly distributed. Cover the container with plastic wrap or a lid and freeze for 2 hours until solid.

Step 8

Serve ice cream with a scoop after thawing at room temperature for a few minutes. Ice cream can be frozen for 3 months in an airtight container.
