Best Vegan Banana Ice Cream

Best Banana Ice Cream - From No Bake Makery by Cristina Suarez

Cristina Suarez Krumsick’s new cookbook, No Bake Makery, is packed full of easy recipes that don’t require an oven. No Bake Makery is full of simple recipes with ingredients that you probably already have around the house and the recipes are nearly foolproof! The book is perfect to have around when I need to whip up a dish to pass or some snacks from friends, but I don’t want to spend the day in the kitchen sculpting the perfect cake or rolling out the perfect pie crust.

Best Banana Ice Cream - just peanut butter and bananas!

I really appreciate that each recipe has a beautiful color photograph taken by her husband (aww!). It’s definitely a pet peeve of mine when a recipe doesn’t have a picture to go with it! I think that’s why I get most of my recipes from food blogs and Pinterest these days – I need the visual inspiration to kick my butt into gear!

Best Banana Ice Cream - just peanut butter and bananas!

The recipe for Best Banana Ice Cream immediately caught my eye. Banana ice cream made from blended bananas with no added cream? It seemed too good to be true! I used some extra-ripe (ie: extra sweet) bananas to make the recipe and left out the brown sugar. It was still so creamy and sweet, I’m glad that I did. This is the perfect guilt-free summer treat and something I’m going to make over and over. If you’re on a search for the perfect vegan ice cream recipe – this is it.

With such success on the first recipe, I can’t wait to try another. The fluffy cracker cookies on the cookbook cover and the healthy fruit leather (made in the microwave!) are next on my list.

    This stuff looks amazing, I’m a big fan of banana “ice cream”, but I’d never thought of adding pb, I have to try that soon!
    By the way, is the giveaway open to non US residents?? Because it looks lovely, and I’d very much like to take part!
    My favourite no bake treat has to be no bake cheesecake. A creamy, decadent, vanilla flavoured one with a lovely berry topping. Now, that’s a dessert!

      Unfortunately it’s US residents only. I love no-bake cheesecake too!

    What a perfect ice cream recipe Kelly, you chose well. I am with you on visualization, need that for sure..

  • Holly

    My favorite no-bake is definitely popsicles (re: People’s Pops cookbook) – make with or without booze 😉 Great for entertaining in the summer!

  • Rachael

    My favorite no-bake dessert is mousse (chocolate of course)!

  • Alicia

    I love making raw balls (I don’t know what else to call them). I just put dates, nuts (usually walnuts), coconut, a little cocoa or cacao powder, and a smidge of maple syrup into the food processor. Then I blend until pretty smooth, form into balls, and roll them in more coconut so they look pretty. Then just refrigerate until firm, although they’re also good at room temp!

    I also love no bake cheesecake (Martha’s “Food” magazine had a great recipe for one last month).

    I am going to jump on the no bake cheesecake bandwagon! So good, especially with summer fruit!

  • Rebecca Murray

    I love making chocolate barks and chocolate covered fruit! You’ll be amazed by how fast chocolate covered raspberries disappear at parties.

    Yum… this book looks right up my alley, Kelly! My favorite no-bake recipe is one I recently saw on another blog – clementine segments dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. (The idea makes me salivate just thinking of them, haha!)ann.b.martin at gmail
