Two Ingredient Ice-Cream Recipes for Summer!

Two ingredient ice-cream recipes are the go-to treat for every parent of a kid with an insatiable sweet tooth.  They’re simple enough for kids to make themselves and tasty enough for them to finish every last spoonful!  This healthy summer treat is a massive hit on school holidays and the Christmas table  – but here’s some delightful variations that will thrill the kids.

The basics:  home made  ice-cream

The two ingredients can be as simple as two over-ripe bananas and another fruit of your choice.  That’s the healthiest combination for two ingredient ice-cream and it’s surprisingly similar to make a healthy creamy treat!


Create the “base” of your ice-cream (about six serves)

  1. Cut 8 over-ripe bananas (starting to get spotty on the skin) into thin disks
  2. Freeze for a minimum of three hours
  3. Add your chosen second ingredient and blend.
  4. Refreeze for one hour and then enjoy!

Healthy two ingredient fruit ice-cream

In a separate container, cut up and freeze the fruits of your choice:

  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • 1 cup raspberries (note that the seeds and tartness of raspberries can put kids off this flavour)
  • 1 cup blueberries, blackberries and mulberries
  • 1.5 cups strawberries
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • Pulp of three passion fruits (combined with mango or peach is delightful)
  • 1 can peaches (skinned)
  • 1 cup frozen fruit yoghurt
  • 1 drop vanilla extract (for banana flavour)

Home made nutella ice-cream

OK, so still healthier than store bought ice-creams!

Using the frozen banana instructions above, blend with 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk and 3 tablespoons of nutella.  This makes a rich smooth ice-cream.  If it’s not chocolatey enough for you, try adding a tablespoon of chocolate syrup too!  You can also add a heaped tablespoon of smooth peanut butter for a nuttier taste!
