https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/ is an awesome healthy dessert blog where I stumbled across this recipe for Chocolate Banana “Ice Cream.” The finished product is smooth and creamy like soft serve that will satisfy your sweet tooth! You’ll love it!
- 3 bananas (See instructions below)
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
Let the bananas ripen before peeling. If they’re green or yellow to start with, leave them out until the bananas at least begin to turn brown. Not-overripe bananas will have something of an earthy taste, as opposed to the more sweet, caramelized flavor they develop as they turn brown.
When the bananas are fully frozen, toss them into a food processor or high-quality blender (such as a Vitamix) and blend until you achieve a consistency that resembles soft serve.
If your blender is having trouble processing, you can add up to 1/4 cup milk of choice or another liquid. I used a splash of unsweetened almond milk.
Once the soft-serve texture is reached, you can eat it immediately or scoop it into a container and freeze an additional 30 minutes or so, then scoop out with an ice cream scoop. This will give you a firmer banana ice cream texture.
Happy Summer, beautiful mamas!
