I’m sensing a trend here: making chocolate things out of things that are not chocolate.
I mean, isn’t that what life’s all about?
This time around, it’s a bit of a repeat, but I can’t help but share this again and IMPLORE you to try it, asap.
This is ice cream made out of a frozen banana.
Ice cream…from a BANANA! I’m so tempted to quote Gwen Stefani right now but I’ll refrain.
And I promise – cross my heart and hope to (not) die – it’s every bit as good as any frozen dessert you’ll ever eat! It’s perfect for the upcoming warmer months. Which means it’s also perfect for fitting into things that are not sweatpants and sweatshirts while still eating ice cream.
Really…does life get any better?
Here are the basics:
- 1 frozen banana (peel it before you freeze it or you’ll be sorry…I know from experience/frostbite)
- 1 – 2 TBSP dark chocolate cocoa powder (depending on how chocolately you roll)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk
Combine everything in a food processor or blender and mix until smooth, adding more almond milk if needed.
Top with anything you want! I’ve tried fresh fruit, peanut butter, granola, and pictured above is a mix of large flake coconut, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and triple berry jam.
People, if this blog gives you anything, let it be the gift of frozen banana ice cream. Your life will change for the better.
(Unless, of course, you’re allergic to bananas. In that case, please refer to my close personal friends, Ben & Jerry.)
