This healthy thick and fudgy soft serve chocolate blizzard treat is a brownie lover’s dream come true!
Growing up, I used to absolutely love Dairy Queen chocolate blizzards.
Rich brownie batter and fudgy brownie bites are blended into a creamy chocolate soft serve so deliciously thick that if you hold it upside down, it stays in the serving cup.
But even a small DQ chocolate blizzard packs in a shocking 770 calories, over 100 grams of carbs, and close to 80 grams of sugar – and that’s just for a small.
Not to mention the corn syrup, white flour, artificial colors, and preservatives.
Do your health a favor and make your own healthy chocolate blizzard at home!

The chocolate treat can be dairy free, egg free, raw, vegan, gluten free, paleo, and added sugar free.
It can be nut free if you use something like coconut butter, sunbutter, or your favorite peanut butter substitute.
There’s also a banana free option in the recipe for those who prefer their chocolate frozen dessert to not have any banana flavor at all.
Or use any brownie recipe, homemade or store-bought. I added the vegan brownie recipe mentioned below. The brownie part is optional, so feel free to skip it or stir in mini chocolate chips or top with chocolate syrup and coconut whipped cream instead.
Healthy Chocolate Brownie Blizzard
- 3 bananas (Banana-Free: make this Healthy Chocolate Frosty)
- 3 tbsp peanut butter OR allergy-friendly sub
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- optional 1 tbsp chocolate protein powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- optional brownies of choice (such as these Vegan Brownies)
- *Make sure bananas are overripe (turning brown). Peel and freeze them. This can be done days or even months in advance so you can make the recipe in just a few minutes any time you wish.Blend everything except the brownies until smooth in a blender, food processor, or Vitamix. If desired, stir in bite-sized pieces of the optional brownies, and a handful of chocolate chips or any other add-ins of choice. View Nutrition Facts

Katie, in the redesigned version of the recipes sent by email (redesigned sometime in late June or early July?), there is no longer a link to the post from the email. Are you aware of this? Is this intentional or an accident in the process (I hope) of being fixed?

Hi! Sorry for the confusion! We didn’t realize that until someone pointed it out to us, so the past two emails (this one included) should have a link to the blog post where it says “Here’s a printable version” right before the ingredients. Maybe we should also make the first photo a link?
Okay, I see that. I had assumed that was a link to the print page rather than the actual blog post. Wouldn’t it be clearer to just have the title of the recipe at the top of the email and have that be a link, like it used to be?
CCK Media Team says
We are with a different company now, so their options are different. The recipes should be much easier to read than they were before, especially on mobile 🙂
So on the actual recipe–do you have an estimated volume measurement for 3 bananas?
Amazing, but I could not get my vitamix to blend the ice cream without adding a little bit of milk. I made it with chunks of still warm from the oven black bean brownies, YUM
so good really recomend
