  1. WOW! Oh my gosh, that is SO good!! I’ve been dying to try this recipe and tonight was the night! All I had was peanut butter so that’s what I used (PB and Banana are one of my favorites anyway 😉 So shocked that it was so creamy, it really ‘feels’ like ice cream! I’m still drooling! haha! Can’t wait to make it again! Thanks! I love your website!

  2. Looks yummy! Our blender is pretty lame so I think i’ll try this in our food processor. We have a vegan restaurant in town that serves banana soft serve. It’s just whipped bananas and it tastes amazing! Can’t wait to try it with nut butter and spices.

  3. This was so delicious! I had to ‘test’ it out tonight before we make it for a birthday celebration tomorrow, and I think it will be a hit with our whole family. Thanks again for the great recipe.

  4. J just tried this out and it is amazing. I had it with poached peaches. I used a chai mix that I already had and peanut butter and it worked well. just what i have been looking for as a subsistence for cream and icecream.

  5. Really great Lauren. I’ve been making banana sorbet for years but had never thought of doing it Chai style 🙂 Love your addition of the fats via seed butter too. Terrific!

  6. I just finished eating this recipe of Banana Chai Ice Cream. I’m in Love! The texture is perfect, I would say, even better than regular ice-cream. Thank you! My day is sweeter and healthier now. 🙂

  7. Hi, I make sorbet ice-cream with frozen ripe bananas and strawberries for my son. I disguise his supplements in it. I use a sorbet machine from princess which I love as it’s really easy to use and better still easy to clean. The recipe looks delicious but would it fit in with LOD? The nuts being high in oxalate. Just made your salmon blinies by the way, they were delicious thanks for sharing them.

  8. I made your recipe tonight, and added a little bit of coconut cream, pecans (had I had more time I would have made candied pecans with honey), vanilla powder (from Organic Traditions) and toasted coconut flakes. Delicious.
    @Sophie, I use my food processor, at first it makes a big clump but if you keep faith it will turn into soft ice ”cream” after a minute or two.

  9. Ooh, this looks delicious and I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker! Thank you so much for sharing all of these recipes and your story. I’m super impressed that you have gotten your colitis under control through diet. What an inspiration you are! I have a good friend with crohn’s disease, and all of her western doctors have told her that changing her diet won’t really affect her disease. She’s also lactose intolerant, so I’ll be passing this along to her 🙂

  10. I made this tonight and LOVED it. It was my first time making banana ice cream, and the creaminess was amazing. What a revelation. As someone who loooooves all things dairy but does better with only small amount of it, I’m thrilled to have a truly delicious alternative. I foresee making this over and over. Thanks for such a wonderful idea!

  11. You have so made my day with this! I LOVE chai. SO MUCH. I’ve missed it because it’s caffeinated and I make some from scratch from time to time with rooiboos but it’s not the same. I’m gonna add raw cacao powder and a dash of maca and WIN the day!

  12. I decided to try this recipe tonight after I read all the comments raving how good it is… I followed the recipe to a tee and lets just say mine came out no where near to what the comments are suggesting. I have no idea why, I used all the exact spices in the same measurements and it turned out with leaving a terrible taste in my mouth. My mom and I both kept trying to add more and more ingredients to combat the entirely too powerful spices (vanilla, sugar, cinnamon sugar, coconut milk, etc) we ended up giving up and dumping it. What a waste! The strange part is we are both HUGE fans of chai which is what made me want to try it in the first place……
