turmeric ice cream
Level: Super Easy
A frozen delight that is super easy to make. A base of frozen bananas transformed with warm spices and the perfect toppings.


  • 3 bananas
    frozen solid
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut milk
    full fat
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of turmeric
  • a pinch of cardamom, ground
  • a pinch of ground clove


  1. Place bananas in food processor (they must be frozen firm) process until crumbly
  2. Add additional ingredients. Process until smooth. You may need to scrap down sides of processor a few times. The finished product will resemble soft serve, or if you would like it firmer place in the freezer for a few minutes.
  3. Top with items of your choice. My favorites are: pistachios, dried cherries, coconut, and whipped coconut creme (recipe here, but eliminate the bourbon and add a pinch of cardamom)


You can use the banana base for any ice cream, the coconut milk is optional and add whatever flavors you like. I love chocolate peanut butter, or chocolate mint.

    We just got finished with a bowl of Turmeric “ice cream”!! All that I can say is WOW that was delicious. I did add a couple of tablespoonful more of coconut milk. We all loved it. Your recipes are great. Every one that we have tried we have all enjoyed. Keep up the good work. It is greatly appreciated.

      Thanks Trish! I am so glad you commented and you’ve been enjoying the recipes ;-) It was probably extra creamy and delicious with the additional coconut milk!
