HEALTHY CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM

{ LOOKING FOR A HEALTHY ICE CREAM ALTERNATIVE THAT WILL STILL SATISFY THE FUSSY ONES? }

{ INGREDIENTS }

2 medium sized, ripe Bananas (sliced and frozen or fresh) – see notes    

2-3 Tablespoons Cocoa    

1 Tablespoon Coconut Cream (other creams/milks can be substituted)

 

OPTIONAL

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract    

1-3 teaspoons Maple Syrup/Honey (I find the Bananas are sweet enough without it)

{ METHOD }

Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until no banana lumps remain. Check the flavour and add additional cocoa or sweetener as required. 

  • If using frozen bananas serve immediately in bowls or cones (if the ice cream is a bit soft for a cone put in a bowl and freeze for 30 minutes before serving). 
  • If using fresh Bananas pour the mixture into the icy pole moulds or sealable container and freeze for 12-24 hours (or until desired frozenness is reached)

Notes…

Bananas: If making instant ice cream use bananas that have been sliced, placed in a ziplock bag and frozen for 24 hours. If making ice cream to pour into a mould use fresh bananas and freeze for 12-24 hours.
