Hi everyone! Can you believe it’s almost MAY???!! I am just shocked by that! That means it’s almost summer. Hope you all are enjoying the glorious sunshine! As you know, with everything I have happening around here, I’m definitely feeling like spending less time in the kitchen & lightening up the menu a little bit. How about you?? But my sweet tooth is always tempting me to find new ways to still feel like I’m getting my little treats when I need them. I’m sure you all have seen the fabulous idea of making ice cream out of frozen bananas. Genius! Because it really does taste like ice cream, right?! But sometimes I want other flavors too – which means I start throwing other things in the blender with the bananas. When that happens- sometimes I come up with something I can’t live without. This Toasted Coconut Banana Ice Cream is one of those things.
The combo of banana & toasted coconut is just heaven for me.
It’s light, fresh & creamy. Perfect for these warmer days. I know that we will be having this all through summer. No guilt- I’m still getting a refreshing treat but with things that are good for me.

I love them too Cate – I found them at the local thrift shop. It’s my favorite place for props.
I love banana and coconut together. This ice cream looks divine!
Frozen bananas whipped up are the BEST! My smoothie in the morning basically tastes like a milkshake… frozen bananas, some peanut butter and cocoa powder and enough unsweetened coconut milk to get it all moving. Definitely going to be making this ice cream a lot this summer too. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
Gina! I love the whole frozen banana ice cream thing, and adding another layer of flavor with coconut is pure genius. Can’t to wait to make this for my kiddos… 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week!
