Healthy Chocolate Banana Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Well hello there.  I know, I haven’t posted in a long time.  Sorry about that, I have been working on redesigning the site and haven’t had as much time for new posts…  But no worries, I have been baking up a storm and have some recipes lined up for you!

Anyway, I wanted to share a quick, healthy, and easy recipe that a friend of mine gave me the idea for.  Make healthy, dairy free ice cream out of frozen bananas!  I thought it sounded weird at first, but it’s really tasty!  So tasty you won’t even know you’re eating healthy 🙂

Just a quick note; I recommend freezing your bananas peeled and sliced.  This will help them blend better.  If you freeze your bananas with the peels on, simply run them under some warm water until the peel softens a bit, then scrape the peel off with a spoon.  Make sure your bananas are very ripe before freezing them.  They should have some spotting, but not be all brown and mushy.

Healthy Chocolate Banana Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Ingredients:

  • 6 Frozen Large Bananas
  • 1 Cup Homemade Almond Milk (or store-bought original unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 Tbs Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbs Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

First place the almond milk, vanilla extract, and cocoa powder into a large blender.  Next add in the frozen bananas.  Blend until smooth; you may need to stop the blender and stir the mixture by hand a few times to get everything to completely combine.  Serve immediately (freeze no longer than 2-3 hours for more of a soft-serve consistency.  If you freeze its longer, you may need to let it sit out of the freezer for a while before you can scoop it out of the container.  Makes 6-8 servings.
