Hey! So recently I have been craving ice cream. I don't know why though--maybe its the fact that I can't have dairy anymore and I have just been thinking about all the things I cant have anymore. Since chocolate and banans go so well together, I thought it would be a good idea to combine them in some form of delicious ice cream (: This ice cream is super creamy and the banana adds a really good flavor and texture. I recommend using ripe bananas (the ones that are practically brown) instead of yellow ones because it creates a different flavor--the un-ripe banana kind. Anyways... I found this recipe online today at bay area bites and decided to try it out with my friend Raquel! When Raquel and I made the ice cream we let it mix in the ice cream maker for an extra 10 minutes to make it more creamy because mixing it for just 20 minutes didn't seem long enough. 


Ps! Feel free to add any toppings! Raquel added oreos and I added almond butter. But hey, don't feel limited! The sky is the limit!

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 ripe bananas 
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk (original/unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 
Directions:
  1. Mix 1/2 cup almond milk with the cocoa powder and sugar and whisk until combined
  2. Microwave mixture for 40 seconds and then whisk together again
  3. In a blender, combine the other 1 cup of almond milk and the 2 1/2 bananas. Mix it together for around 10-15 seconds just to make a puree 
  4. Add the banana puree, and chocolate mix into an ice cream mixture. Let it process for 20-30 minutes--depending on how creamy you want the ice cream. 
  5. Once the ice cream is done churning dish it up and dig in! 

This can be stored in a freezable container (: 
Makes about 8 servings
