Recently we were honored to have a guest poster, Ashley share her experience of going through a full month with No.  Refined.  Sugar! 

In her post about going through Week Two of that challenge she shared with us a quick & easy hot-weather treat – Healthy Sugar-Free ‘Ice Cream’ made with frozen bananas and berries.  Check out this recipe for a nice cool treat on a hot summer’s day that’s actually GOOD for you…

Healthy Frozen 'Ice Cream' Treat Using frozen berries & bananas. Creamy like ice cream & flavors are endless. Curious? Check it out. #TexasHomesteader

TAMMY’S NOTE: This No-Sugar challenge documents Ashley’s 30-day attempt to remove PROCESSED SUGAR from their diet.  This challenge allows her to use natural sugars such as fruit, honey or true maple syrup, therefore it’s not meant for a diabetic alternative, simply a personal-health challenge. 

From Ashley:

Ok, this recipe was so simple and delicious that I could easily see myself giving up ice cream all together!  It’s creamy like ice cream and the flavors are endless.  Curious yet?

The recipe is as simple as you want it to be and the flavors are almost endless.  I chose a raspberry flavor because that’s what I happened to have on hand.  I blended it all in my *Nutribullet in seconds!

HEALTHY Frozen Fruit Sugar Free "Ice Cream"

This “ice cream” is surprisingly delicious and is as smooth and creamy as your store bought, sugar-filled ice cream at the store. Ah-Maze-Ing! I'm so upset I haven't been doing this already.

Author Ashley Harris


  • 1 - 2 sliced frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, strawberries or blueberries


  1. Add frozen banana slices and berries into Nutribullet, food processor, or ninja and blend until creamy. (I used my amazing *Nutribullet)  Yup. It's really that simple.

Recipe Notes

You can make it more of a sorbet if you add less banana and more berries, or even more creamy with more banana and less berries. You can also do other fruits like mango or watermelon or mix several together.

Seriously, the options are endless! If you pour a little bit of coconut water (or juice or beverage of your choice) into the blend, you can pour your mixture into freezer molds and have frozen popsicles!
