Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe

I created my Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe because I wanted to enjoy ice cream that is actually healthy! I just love cooling down with ice cream on hot sunny days, but regular ice cream is loaded with dairy, artificial flavoring, thickeners and tons of sugar.

Vegan Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe by @jesselwellness #glutenfree #icecreamVegan Blueberry Ice Cream is made with whole foods and gets all the sweetness it needs from the banana and blueberries. It is super quick and easy to make and naturally gluten free. For more easy naturally sweetened recipes like this, check out my cookbook Healthy Dairy Free Desserts.

I know blueberries are the star of this recipe, but I have already covered the health benefits of blueberries in my Raw Blueberry Cheesecake Post. Bananas are the behind the scene star of this recipe because frozen bananas give the vegan blueberry ice cream an ice cream consistency.

Health Benefits of Bananas

Bananas on their own are the perfect grab-and-go snack. They are also a nutrient powerhouse that offer benefits like:

  • Being one of the best sources of potassium which is vital for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function
  • Protecting the stomach against ulcers and H. pylori due to their antacid effect and activation of cells in the stomach lining
  • Helping you overcome diarrhea thanks to their high pectin content that regulated the movement of food in the digestive tract
  • Providing you with lots of antioxidants (vitamin C & manganese) to protect cells from free radical damage.
