Here’s an incredibly simple dairy free, gluten free, zero added sugar banana chocolate ice cream recipe for you.

Feel free to get creative on top of this – I’ll sometimes add berries, coconut flakes, dairy free stevia sweetened chocolate chips, and other bits!

Note that if you’re currently in a flare I would not recommend this recipe as it is. Rather, you could remove the cacao, walnuts and coconut milk, simply freeze and blend the bananas, and sprinkle with frozen or fresh blueberries.

If you’re not in a flare, then go for it – the walnuts, cacao and coconut milk, whilst sometimes problematic for those in an active flare, all convey a number of health benefits for those who have healed / are in remission.
