Lemon Basil Ice Cream

Lemon Basil Ice Cream

Immerse yourself in the art of raw food cooking with this lemon basil ice cream recipe. It’s a culinary adventure as simple as it is sublime. With just three ingredients, you can create a dessert that’s not only healthy, but also bursting with the bright, zesty flavours of lemon and the subtle, peppery notes of basil.


  • 5 ripe bananas
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil (or 3 tablespoons fresh basil)

Method of preparation:

Peel and slice the bananas into coins. Place the banana slices in a freezer bag and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.

Once the bananas are frozen, zest and juice the lemon.

Place the frozen banana slices, lemon zest and juice in a food processor or high-powered blender.

Add the dried basil (or fresh if using).

Blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times.

Serve immediately for a soft-serve texture or transfer to a container and freeze for another 1-2 hours for a firmer consistency.

Before serving, allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly.
