5 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Frosty Dupe (Banana Ice Cream)

I’ve been trying to get back into my vegetarian groove, and completely cut out animal products. But the hardest thing for me is dairy, and I constantly am craving things like ice cream.

I’ve heard about this frozen banana ice cream for years, but I have never ever tried it. Until today! I decided to try it out, and form my favey fave version of the basic recipe. I consider this a chocolate frosty dupe! Feel free to leave out the peanut / almond butter if you don’t like it, and it is an exact dupe!

  • 2 Frozen Bananas, cut into 1/2 inch pieces before freezing for ease of blending
  • 3/4 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Peanut / Almond / Sunflower Butter (I use almond butter because yum, but use your preference 😃)
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla (Do NOT Skip Vanilla! It makes a world of difference for the flavor of the ice cream, especially if you are using unsweetened almond milk.)

I start out by putting my bananas and almond milk into my blender cup, and then blend it up to create a thick gloopy ice cream! You can totally just add in the vanilla at this step and have a pure plain ice cream, but who would want that lol, so boring! pfft. I used 1/2 cup of my almond milk for the first blend with the bananas, reserving around 1/4 cup.

Then, I plopped in the almond butter on top, then the vanilla, and cocoa powder on top. Finally, I just poured the last of my almond milk on top for easy blending.

Sorry for the bad cell phone photo quality, I didn’t plan on making this post, but it tasted so good I had to!

I think I really am beginning to prefer non dairy options because they don’t form a phlegmy residue in my throat. It’s really refreshing, and I’ve gotten back into cereal and oatmeal because of the existence of almond milk. I can eat my beloved Raisin Bran again! Yay!

It makes me happy that this is a new vegan option to add to my repetoire and it’s such a good easy, simple recipe that almost anyone could make! Good for summer breakfast or even a dessert. Now that I think about it, it could be a nice before bed snack to keep your blood sugar up while you sleep, and there is no residue to keep you awake coughing at night. So, all around, I really loved this recipe, if you couldn’t guess from the above! ☺️
