Tropical Nice Cream

Hey! It’s 2020 and did you hear that ice cream can be made of fruit now, and not cream? It’s true, man! Now we can eat it every night, guys! Woop, woop!

My dad is a HUGE ice cream fanatic and I have definitely inherited the same taste buds from him. Any kind, anywhere – we’re game. Thus, the inspiration for this recipe…because y’all know I can’t be eating real ice cream every day. This Tropical Nice Cream is SO easy and SO tasty you may never go back to the real stuff again.

Grab your bananas. Let’s do this.

This is a one-ingredient recipe. I can’t believe it, either. You are going to need:

  • Frozen fruit

Yup. That’s it! Okay, fine…if you want your ice cream to be the pretty blue that you see in the photos, then just add some spirulina powder and that’s that. But the base of this “ice cream” can be achieved by just using frozen fruit. You are so welcome.

Okay, make sure you have a whole five minutes. Grab your food processor. Load it up with some frozen bananas, mangoes, pineapples and spirulina (if using). Blend. Eat. Feel amazing. Make some more.

But actually…it’s that easy! Happy New Year to us.

Tropical Nice Cream

Servings: 4

Prep time: 1 minute

Cook time: 3-5 minutes


  • 4 frozen bananas (quarter or half them before freezing)
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1 tsp blue spirulina (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor (or blender). Pulse a few times until fruit is broken up and spirulina is incorporated. Blend on low until smooth. You will need to scrape down the bowl a number of times throughout.
  2. Transfer to an air-tight container and place in the freezer. Remove from freezer a few minutes prior to eating and serve using an ice cream scoop (or large metal spoon) that has been dipped in warm water.
