No-Churn Banana Cinnamon Ice Cream {Refined Sugar Free}

No-Churn Banana Cinnamon Yogurt Ice Cream {Refined Sugar Free} - 3

This ice cream is LIFE my friends!! Banana cinnamon is my favorite ice cream flavor ever and has been for many many years. Let me tell you a little story.

When I was about 12, I went on a school trip to Rome and it was love at first sight. I fell in love hard with this city, this country and its langage and decided that I would go and live there when I am 18. You can ask anyone who you knew me at the time: I was obsessed with everything Italy.

Life followed its course and I did not end up living there (as for now anyway!) but I still travelled there as often as I could and up until we left France 5 years ago I would go there at least once a year. Which gave me plenty of occasions to eat loooots of gelati.

My favorite ice cream place in Rome is called Giolitti and they make a mean cinnamon ice cream. Which of course I paired with banana. The first time I tried this combo was during my first school trip and I never looked back. I did try other flavors of course but kept coming back to the one and only “banana e cannella”.

(OMG look, I just found a proof in my photo archives!! This is me in 2014 eating a banana e cannella ice cream! I think that yellow thing on top was mango 🤔 but I can clearly see the banana and cinnamon just behind 👀) 

So today, I’m beyond excited to bring you this little piece of Rome and me to your kitchen. It’s much healthier than a traditional gelato (no heavy cream and it’s only sweetened with maple syrup) but still as creamy and delicious. And you don’t need an ice cream machine. So easy!

Cal: 167 - Protein: 7.2g - Fat: 0.5g - Carbs: 35g - Fiber: 2.5g - Sugar: 23.8g

Ingredients

  • 18 oz - 500 grams banana (about 4 large)
  • 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt, chilled
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, plus extra to serve

Directions

  1. Slice the bananas into even rounds and layer in a 
freeze-proof container between sheets of non-stick 
baking paper. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Place banana, yoghurt, vanilla, cinnamon 
and maple syrup in a food processor and process for 
3-5 minutes or until smooth.
  3. Spoon into a 1.5-litre-capacity metal container (I used a loaf pan) and freeze for 3-4 hours or until firm. If you are not serving the ice cream the same day or if you have leftovers, take the container out of the freezer and let it in sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before serving. Drizzle with the extra maple syrup to serve.

Notes

To make this recipe dairy-free, you can omit 
the yoghurt. All other quantities remain the same.
