I’m sure by now you’ve tried the 1-ingredient magic that is banana “soft serve” ice cream?
If not, you must. It’s just frozen, ripe bananas whirled into creamy soft serve. In other words, it’s what a healthy foodie’s dessert dreams are made of.
Flavor options are endless! But, for this particular recipe, I went with a longtime favorite: Strawberry banana!
Not only is this recipe delicious, it’s also SO easy to make, requiring just 5-10 minutes, 1 bowl, and 4 ingredients to make! I added in 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin to thicken the soft serve, and keep it extra creamy. Not only does the flavorless, odorless Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin work well for the texture, but it also adds amazing health benefits to your sweet treat.
Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin is gluten free, Paleo friendly, and Whole30® approved. It is a pasture-raised, grass-fed bovine hide gelatin powder that can be mixed into both hot and cold liquids and supports digestive health.
In fact, it’s one of the best foods for gut health. It can help to fill damaged areas of the stomach lining and reduces inflammation. Gelatin also increases the amount of gastric acid in they gut, which is necessary to breakdown and digest protein. I like adding the gelatin powder to my coffee, smoothies, soups and other foods almost daily. Have you tried adding gelatin to foods?
I think you’re going to LOVE this strawberry banana soft serve as much as I do. It’s:

Enjoy this recipe as a healthier dessert or snack! Add some cacao nibs, mini chocolate chips or almond slivers for a crunchy topping. For a drinkable version, add more milk to make a smoothie like this Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie!

This naturally sweet soft serve is a healthier and delicious way to indulge in dessert!
- 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
- 1 cup frozen sliced banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or milk of choice
- Sweetener of choice, if needed*
- 2 scoops Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin for added thickness and health benefits
Add sliced, frozen strawberries, bananas, milk, sweetener and gelatin (if using) to a food processor or a high-speed blender and mix / blend until a creamy "soft serve" is formed, scraping down sides as needed - about 3-5 minutes.
Serve immediately or transfer to serving bowls and put in the freezer to thicken up. Serve as is or top with any favorite toppings!
Best when fresh. Leftovers will keep in the freezer up to 1 week. Let it sit out of the freezer and come back to soft serve consistency before enjoying.
*I like adding 1-2 packets stevia.
