Guys! I’m so excited about this dairy-free “Gelato” recipe!! I’m lactose intolerant (sorry if that is TMI 🙄 ), but I love Gelato, ice cream, soft-serve, you name it. It’s difficult sometimes to pony-up for the expensive dairy-free offerings in the store that are clean labeled as well, so I got to thinking, “Why not make it myself?”.
What really inspired me to create this recipe was my son, Oskar. Oskar has a bit of a sweet tooth. As a matter of fact, he just has a few teeth, and this dairy-free Gelato recipe is a great way to pack some antioxidants into his little body, cure his sweet tooth (literally), all while soothing his aching “teething” gums.
I just love preparing quick and easy blender recipes for the baby before we start our busy day. This dark chocolate dairy-free Gelato recipe happens to be great for breakfast and for a decadent dessert, post dinner. We’ve even added dairy-free coconut whipped cream and fresh berries to the top and it’s a real treat!
Now, head to the store, freeze some bananas and take 3 minutes to prepare this tasty take on Gelato! Let me know what you think of it 🙂
- 2 peeled frozen bananas
- 3 soft Medjool dates
- 5 T coco powder
- 3 T non-dairy milk (I use coconut)
- 1.5 tsp vanilla
- Optional Garnishes: coco nibs, crushed nuts, berries, coconut whipped cream
- -serve right away or put in fridge for 2-3 hours for gelato like texture
- Pit Medjool dates, then add all ingredients to the blender and blend until the consistency of Gelato. Serve immediately or store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
- Great for baby too!
