Banana “Ice Cream”

Remember how I told you a few days ago that I have created an Ice Cream Monster? Yes, one trip to the ice cream shop was enough for him to chant “Ice Keem, Ice Keem, Ice Keem,” over and over and over for weeks. In fact, he woke up from his nap yesterday, took one look at me, and said, “ice keem?”

He’d finally eaten the last peach popsicle out of the freezer (they contained peaches, coconut milk, a banana and a little vanilla extract and were SO good! To date, they are the first thing my son has eaten that he wouldn’t share a single bite of. In fact, he cried hysterically when his daddy took a lick-the only time he’s EVER done this!)

So I had to think of something quick…

Here’s what I came up with:

  • 1 frozen banana blended with
  • milk to desired thickness (cow, goat, coconut, almond, or rice milk all work fine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • dash of cinnamon and…


Banana Ice Keem!!!

He LOVED it, and I was surprised at how much it really tasted like ice cream. His daddy came home and saw what we were up to- but this time he was smart…he didn’t dare risk taking a bite of the ice cream monster’s. Instead, he added some frozen blueberries to my recipe and enjoyed purple ice keem.

It was a great afternoon for all.

  1. Hi Holly!!

    I tried the Banana “Ice Keem” recipe today. Grant LOVES it and pronounces it the same way! Also, it took me about 2.5 minutes to make – no kidding. I am going to experiment to see if I can add some other flavors too.


  2. Hi Diana! I’m so glad you tried it and Grant likes it. Isn’t it easy? I love finding things like this. Hope you are all doing well!

  3. I would also like to mention that you should peel the bananas before you freeze them- just pop them in individual snack sized baggies. (If you don’t you have to cut the peel off with a knife! Can be done, but it’s time consuming so it cancels out how easy this recipe is!) 1/2 a banana makes the perfect amount of ice keem for a toddler.
