With so many ice cream options labeled "low-calorie" or "healthy" in the grocery store, it's hard to know which ones you should actually be eating. That's why this easy plant-based ice cream recipe is perfect for those times you crave something sweet and creamy. With just four ingredients, it comes together in seconds for a healthy, guilt-free treat.

And if you need healthy topping ideas, here are two that will totally transform your bowl.


Olive Oil

Drizzle a tablespoon on top of your ice cream with some salt. It goes great with vanilla to pull out the dairy flavor or chocolate to make it more luscious and decadent. It can take a dairy-free ice cream or low-calorie ice cream and bring some fat back into the equation — but the healthy kind!

Spicy Chili Crisp

It's basically Sichuan chili flakes in oil. You can find it online or in Asian grocery stores. This topping not only gives you a little heat but a little crunch too. And no sundae is complete without a crunch! Top with two teaspoons per serving, and it only adds around 60 calories. The ice cream boosts the fruity flavors of the chilies and the citrus from the peppercorns.

1 cup Frozen banana chunks
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Coconut sugar
1 tablespoon Almond butter
1.5 teaspoons Butter extract (optional)

Dump all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth.

Serve immediately with your favorite toppings!
