Dairy-free coffee ice cream
The only work involved in this recipe is remembering to freeze the bananas. The frozen bananas provide sweetness, while the coconut cream creates a creaminess that compliments the coffee flavor.

Why I support Thrive Market (and 25% off)
If you haven’t signed up for Thrive Market yet, you can get an additional 25% off with this link here.
I’ve worked with Thrive for a few years, and now purchase many of my pantry staples there. Here’s why:
25% – 50% off standard prices. Thrive is like an online version of Costco and Whole Foods. For a small yearly membership fee, you get access to wholesale prices on natural and organic ingredients.
Ethical working conditions. I have purchased countless books, ingredients, and office supplies from Amazon, but the more I learn, the more I prefer not to send my business elsewhere when possible. Amazon’s warehouses have been compared to sweatshops.
Great prices on their top-quality private label products. I trust Thrive’s private label because they source in ways that supports local, sustainable ecosystems.
Eco-friendly packaging. I find their use of packaging to be on the heavier side, but they are dedicated to using as much recycled packaging as possible.
Community support. For every membership purchased, Thrive gives a membership to a family in need.
- Place coffee pod into a glass jar and cover with 1 cup water; refrigerate 12 hours. Peel bananas and slice into ½-inch rounds. Place in a plastic bag or glass jar and freeze 4 hours.
- Once frozen, add bananas to a food processor and purée until the flesh is creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add coconut cream, ¼ cup cold brew, coffee grounds, and salt; purée until smooth. Pour ice cream into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and freeze overnight, or until firm.
