Ingredients

  • 6 frozen bananas, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or milk of choice

Preparation

1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender.

2. Puree on a medium setting for 15-20 seconds, using the tamper of your blender to push down or stopping to push down with a spatula. You can this to be a fast process so the ice cream doesn't melt. 

3. Scrape down the sides and puree again. Repeat the process until the mixture is smooth like frozen yogurt/ice cream.** Sprinkle with favorite toppings! ***

4. Serve.

* Here's a great way to freeze bananas! Place them in a Ziploc bag (make sure to lay the slices out flat in the bag when you freeze so they don't stick together) and leave them in the freezer so you can always make this treat on a moment’s notice.

** Use the lowest setting to puree to avoid the ice cream from getting too loose and so it has more of a true ice cream texture.

*** You can top with granola, hemp seeds, sprinkles, berries, chopped nuts, dye free chocolate candies and more.
