Dairy free vegan raspberry ice cream you can make inside 3 minutes.
Dessert doesn’t come much dead easier than this and after a month’s hiatus Dead Easy Desserts is back. A round up of the last edition’s entries ably hosted by Tina will be included below.
To mix things up, I’ve decided that from now on Dead Easy Desserts will have a theme – so apologies if you’d held off submitting something that doesn’t fit. I’m sorry.
This month’s theme is RASPBERRIES. You can submit any raspberry dessert that is ready inside 30 minutes. Things that are assembled out of pre-cooked ingredients such as custards, biscuit crumbs or cooked fruit are fine to include too.
My theme choice has been prompted by the arrival of raspberry season. To say I’m not much of a gardener is an understatement but I have a very successful raspberry crop. In fact, my freezer still contains raspberries from last year – I’d been holding off using them until I had a Vitamix and by the time I did they were back in season again!

No churn vegan dairy free raspberry ice cream recipe
Yield: approx 3 portions
200g frozen banana chunks
200g frozen raspberries
1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional – or use some other seeds that are good for you such as chia, sunflower etc)
100ml soya or oat milk
A few extra raspberries to serve
Special equipment: Power blender such as a Vitamix.
Place the ingredients in the Vitamix jug and replace the lid. Set to the ice cream program if you have one, otherwise blend on setting number 3 for around 1 minute. You might want to use the Vitamix stick (very important – use only the Vitamix one provided with the machine!) to agitate the mixture and help it blend.
Decant the mixture into containers and press a couple of broken up raspberries into the top of each one. Freeze if serving later, otherwise enjoy immediately.
I am currently roadtesting a machine supplied with the compliments of Vitamix.
I am sharing this easy raspberry ice cream recipe with Ren’s Simple and in Season and Kavey’s Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream challenge (which this month is themed fruit).
And of course, it’s the opening recipe for the new round of Dead Easy Desserts which this month is themed RASPBERRIES. You can enter any dessert recipe ready in 30 minutes or less that features raspberries.
To take part, link to this post, display the badge and pop your entries into the linky below and the round up will appear within the next announcement around 1st August. For full rules visit the Dead Easy Desserts page.

I’ve made chocolate banana ice-cream. It works surprisingly well – even without the vitamix 😉
Sarah, Maison Cupcake says
I’ve only done chocolate and banana smoothies so far. Ice cream soon!
What Kate Baked says
Although we have the smallest of freezers imaginable, each week for the past month ice been filling it with no churn ice creams- so easy and so refreshing in this hot weather! I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s ice cream recipes for lots of great inspiration
Sarah, Maison Cupcake says
Do you use a blender? I’ve never tried no churn ones until I had the Vitamix
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
I love making “ice cream” with bananas, especially if it is packed with extra fruit too.
Sarah, Maison Cupcake says
I like that it’s 80% fruit, you’d be pushed to buy one with such high fruit content.
Katie Bryson says
Oh wow this is definitely getting made as it’s totally weight watchers friendly! I shall be freezing bananas this morning!!!!!
Helene @Croque-Maman says
Thank you for this great recipe Sarah. I’ve never had a chance to make ice cream with my Thermomix, now I have the perfect recipe! I LOVE your new website look as well 🙂
Yum yum yum! I need to get me one of those Vitamix machines!
Fishfingers for tea says
We love making ‘ice cream’ from bananas and I’d been thinking about a raspberry version. Having seen yours it’s not going to be long until it gets made!
I love the ease of making ice cream in the vitamix. I have to say I have not used banana but it is a great idea. Will try this out. Need healthy recipes whilst my family indulge in creamier desserts!
Aaron Huckett says
This sounds amazing – definitely checking this out once I have tried the Kermit juice!
