This is great, you don't have to give up ice cream, just make your own healthy version, here is just one recipe I found, but there are many different kind of recipes out there without all the fat, sugar and added items you can't even pronounce : )

Cardamom-Scented Peach Ice Cream


The soft, delicate flavor of summer peaches swirls together with sweet vanilla and the subtle spicy warmth of cardamon, all combined in a base cold, creamy dairy-free ice cream! What's not to absolutely adore about this recipe!

Recipe by


 1 cup cubed/sliced peaches or nectarines (see note)
1/2 cup frozen banana, in chunks
1 can coconut milk (regular, not lite)
1/2 cup soaked cashews (or 1/3 cup raw, unsoaked, see note) Add to Cart
3 – 4 tbsp coconut sugar (see note) Add to Cart
1/2 cup plain or vanilla nondairy milk
3 – 4 tbsp pure maple syrup (or agave nectar, see note)
couple pinches powdered stevia (optional, can add more sweetener, see note)
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 teaspoon (rounded) guar gum
1/8 tsp ground cardamom (if you love the flavor of cardamom, you can use a little more, up to about 1/4 tsp)
1/8 – 1/4 tsp pure almond extract (optional, but adds lovely light fruity essence)
Add-in (optional) 1/2 – 2/3 cup chopped peaches or nectarines (to add in at end of churning)

I made one using only bananas, organic chocolate peanut butter sweetened with evaporated cane juice and raw nuts, and a little organic almond milk, it was great too. Keep cool this Summer!
