I recently did a post on Chocolate Banana Ice Cream. But the number of bananas that ended up in my shopping basket this week was kind of prolific, and I just couldn’t pass up the chance to experiment with the clean eating coconut banana ice cream recipe.

So here is my latest version of clean eating ice cream. I swear to you, if you like coconut, this recipe is even better than theΒ  Chocolate Banana Ice Cream recipe!

Clean Eating Coconut Banana Ice Cream served in a bright orange cup and ready to eat.

It’s cold and creamy with a hint of tropical flavors. Mini Chef gobbled this up and so did the rest of my family! This is one recipe we’ll be making again and again. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!

  1. Coconut is definitely one of my favorites. I have to give this a try.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Hi Aaron,

      Let me know what you think!

  2. Mmmm, I think I’ll try this with a scoop of protein powder. Sounds soo yummy!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Richelle – I thought about it, but chickened out. Let me know how it is and maybe I’ll try it too.

      1. Hmmmm will definitely give it a trial

          Fatimah – I hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

  3. This is a long-time favorite in my family. (Well, since about 1990!) It’s even better when you make it “Pina Colada” by adding some pineapple, or frozen pineapple juice.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Cinder – Oh yum! Thanks!

  4. Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!!! I just tried this yesterday, and was TOTALLY SATISFIED!!! πŸ™‚ My almost-3-year old wanted to try it, but he didn’t like the smell! He tasted it — said he liked it, but he just couldn’t get over the smell. Goofy boy …. he’s missing out! πŸ˜‰

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Wendy – How funny! I don’t think I’ve ever taken the time to smell it! LOL. Glad you enjoyed it though πŸ˜‰

  5. Absolutely sensational!!! I can’t get enough! Last night I raced home from dancing to make some so my husband could try it!….I like the pina colada comment, I have thought about using frozen pineapple…as well as every other combination running through my head that I can’t wait to make….haha…bummer that it is getting cold here and not really ice cream weather. Looking forward to summer and making the mango, banana pecan one. Tiffany this is seriously the best dessert recipe EVER – a perfect substitute…I don’t even want ice cream anymore! πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Natasha – Fabulous!!! I love it too. It’s tough to top!

  6. Carebear611 says:

    You say not to freeze it. But if you do have leftovers and freeze it just add a milk of your choice and blend. It makes a great shake!

    1. Anonymous says:

      Carebear – Yes!! That’s always a yummy option, thanks!

  7. Just found this on Pinterest, well technically another blog on there that mentioned this recipe – looks very yummy though!!! Your blog looks much deeper though, excited to do some digging! πŸ™‚

      Lucy – Welcome! I hope you’ll enjoy my recipes. πŸ™‚

  8. Sbroverman says:

    This ice cream is absolutely amazing. I’m doing the no sugar challenge and this is just what I needed to sweeten up my day. I’m surprised at how much this really tastes (and reminds me of) ice cream! I look forward to making this every day and using it as my last serving of fruit for the day. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!!!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      My pleasure! Enjoy!

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Yes, that’s how I would do it. Enjoy!

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Nope! Just the milk. The light version.

  11. graciouspantry says:

    Some people make banana ice cream without adding any liquid at all. It could be that it was just too much liquid for whatever reason. The recipe is totally adjustable, so try it with much less, or no liquid and go from there. You can add more, but you can’t take out. πŸ™‚

  12. graciouspantry says:

    You can try, but do it in small batches so you don’t bust your blender.

  13. graciouspantry says:

    I would use about 1 cup mango for every banana.

  14. The other night I took frozen strawberries and coconut milk and blended them in my food processor to make an “ice cream” (I didn’t have any bananas and wanted that creaminess). After it was smooth, I threw in some mini semisweet chocolate chips and pulsed a few times. It was delicious!! The kids even loved it and wanted seconds!! =)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sounds wonderful! πŸ™‚

  15. I have never been so frustrated with fruit! Did you mean blender? A food processor is not getting the job done for me. I’ve been trying to make this for maybe 40 minutes now and all I get is pink … I don’t know goo? I like strawberry banana so I added some strawberries and the bananas will not mix! Banana and strawberry pieces just keep spinning around and making me so mad! . It’s definitely not ice cream.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rachel – Oh dear. Maybe let the fruit sit for about 10-15 minutes and soften slightly. Or perhaps your processor isn’t strong enough for this particular recipe? Not sure. Add some milk to it to get things going. You can try the blender, but you’ll have to start it and stop it a lot to get it mixed and you may end up with more of a smoothie than anything else.

  16. This would be really yum topped with some toasted coconut also! Just found your site via pinterest and am really excited. Every recipe I click on comes back to you!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lois – Welcome! Happy to have you hear! Enjoy the ice cream. πŸ™‚

  17. Michael Bennett says:

    For those of us who love to cook Thai dishes, coconut milk is a staple, whether in soups, sauces (red and green curry sauces for vegetables), and to use in Thai iced coffee (also used in Vietnamese iced coffee and even Indian iced coffee–blended with cardomom). Never thought of it as a base for various fruit ice creams but it is certainly both logical and tasty. Have you experimented with other fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, clementines, cherries, pineapple????

  18. How about the nutritional facts such as calories and portion size?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shelly – I no longer supply those. But apps like My Fitness Pal make it super easy to import the recipe.

  19. Marsha Olson says:

    Would love to try and make this, but first I need to know the calorie count per serving. Could someone please sent me the calorie content. Thank you.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Marsha – You would have to enter the recipe into an online recipe calculator. There are lots of them. I often use the at MyFitnessPal.com. It’s easy to use.

  20. This looks good, as all the other “clean eating” ones do. I will definitely give some of these a try for Thanksgiving. I’ve been using frozen fruit + fat-free greek yogurt to make a soft ice cream, tho the yogurt makes it a little tart. I find I can use really any fruit, including citrus, tho raspberries or bananas are my favorite.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – Yes! Any fruit works. But the focus on bananas is simply because bananas provide that creamier consistency that most people want in ice cream. But if you don’t mind more of a sorbet, then any fruit will do the job! πŸ™‚
