Vegan Vanilla Banana Chai Tea Ice Cream

Vanilla Banana Chai Tea Ice Cream is awesome!
It has stayed relatively in the 90 degree temperature range all week, but blistering hot summer skies haven't stopped me from my daily walking around town. When I burst through the door sweaty and in need of cold replenishment, I grab water and look in the freezer for homemade ice cream.
And Vanilla Banana Chai Tea is like no other.
It has an amazingly unique flavor that combines spicy fragrant chai tea soaked in rich thick coconut milk and frozen ripened bananas at the peak of sweetness. Very simple to make, this lovely bowl of golden ice cream is a wonderful way to tamper down the outside humidity.

Vegan Vanilla Banana Chai Tea Ice Cream Ingredients and Preparation

1 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
3 chai tea packets
2 frozen bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger

Bring coconut milk to a boil. Turn off heat and drop in chai tea bags. Steep for 10-15 minutes.
 Pour into a heat proof bowl, cover, and place in freezer for an hour. Once desired cold, blend with bananas and vanilla.  
Scoop into a bowl.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and ginger.
I added mini chocolate chips, but it's good without as well!


  1. Ooh, yum! I just learned about adding coconut milk to frozen bananas to create yummy ice cream. This looks really good and I love that it has Chai in it because that is currently my favorite tea flavor.

    1. Yes! Coconut cream makes it look like ice cream too! I love that you don't even need a maker- just bananas, milk, and whatever flavor you want to achieve! Very simple to make. Chai is always yum!
