Dairy-Free Coconut Pecan Ice Cream

Today’s recipe is the perfect solution for that certain kind of craving only cold, rich and creamy ice cream can satisfy.

Sweet frozen banana combines with rich coconut milk to create a dairy-free treat that’s loaded with healthy fats and the many nutritional benefits that fruit provides (such as gut-healthy fiber and an array of beauty-enhancing vitamins and antioxidants).

Best of all? You’re only 5 ingredients away from your little scoop of satisfaction.

Coconut Pecan “Ice Cream”


½ can full fat organic coconut milk

1 ½ frozen bananas

½ tspn vanilla extract

Hearty pinch sea salt

½ cup chopped toasted pecans

Optional: 1 tablespoon maple syrup


Combine coconut milk, frozen bananas, vanilla and salt in blender and blend until smooth. For perfectly formed ice cream, pour into a pre-frozen ice cream machine for about 20 minutes (you can skip this step for ice cream that may not form into perfect scoops but will still be delicious). Stir in chopped pecans and serve with an optional drizzle of maple syrup.
