Bring on warmer weather with my Double Dark Chocolate Nice Cream recipe!

5 Ingredient Double Dark Chocolate Nice Cream / Running in a Skirt

Hi everyone!

With being in the Abacos last week and the super warm weather last weekend, it almost feels like summer is already here.  Until I looked at the calendar for Friday… 50’s again?  Really?  It must be blackberry winter!

Even with the bipolar weather, long summer days are on the horizon, I’m bringing frozen treats back into the house like my Double Dark Chocolate Nice Cream recipe.

Well… who are we kidding I eat ice cream year round… but that’s a story for another day.

So what does that cone look like to you?

If you said… “Julie… that cone looks like a rich, fudgy indulgent treat of epic proportions.  Why are you distracting me from my healthy eating goals?”

Well… you’d be right! This is a rich and fudgy dessert.

Catch is… it’s actually healthy and totally guilt free.  Believe it or not… that chocolaty goodness is actually made with frozen bananas.  And YES I swear it actually tastes good.  Better than good really… delectable!

To make it you just food process frozen bananas and cocoa powder together.  It starts looking super healthy… but before your eyes transforms into this sinful looking treat.

You can also use one of my favorite healthy living kitchen tools a Yonanas, which turns all kinds of fruit into soft serve ice cream without messing with a food processor.  After using it to puree the bananas you just stir in the other ingredients.

If you don’t have one, you should totally get one here!  They are so much fun.  It is one of my favorite healthy kitchen tools.  (Not sponsored, but that is an affiliate link)

The result is pure vegan, clean eating goodness…. or Nice Cream as us bloggers like to call it.  It’s not an exact replica of ice cream, but it does taste really good and will hold you over until your next real scoop.

    Leave it to you to share a super awesome treat that makes us feel like we’re being naughty without even having to over indulge. I love it. And the weather here has been weird too! Up in the 90s and then down in the 60s. 90s today though so I may just make this as a cool, refreshing treat =)

    This spring has been absolutely like a roller coaster. We’ve had snow one day and then a 70 degree day the next. I think God loves variety and I’m so thankful that God in His mercy sends moisture and then sunshine the next day to dry it up . . . That’s crazy Colorado weather.

    And FUDGY ice cream; it’s so beautiful; I can almost taste it; it looks so good.

    Oh, my dear goodness! This loves heavenly. I have been craving sweets over the past couple days but feel guilty about most things. This may be what I’ve been looking for!

    Yum! This sounds delicious. It must be the day for healthy versions of ice cream because we shared a mint chocolate chip one today!

  11. That looks really great for bananas!

    Bananas are very delicious. It is my favorite dish, it is also good for health, and cool in the summer. Great !!! In my country, fruit cream is very popular and popular

    Sounds delish, Julie. I’ll have to give this “Nice Cream” a try!!

  14. haha to me it looks like a heck of a time trying to get photos before it melts! lol I really need to try this. I’d feel better about Annabelle eating it rather than my indulgent ice cream I’ve been enjoying too much 😉 I actually haven’t tried to make ice cream with bananas. I need to!

      haaaaaa!!!!! Totally!!!! I had it ALL over me by the time I was done! lol!

    It looks to die for! I wonder what other frozen fruit you could use in the base…

    • JulieWunder May 13, 2017 at 11:09 am - Reply

      I’m not sure what else would have that neutral flavor to take the chocolate???!!

  16. Blane Sherer May 2, 2017 at 5:08 am - Reply

    Well it certainly looks good.
    I do like ice cream and I do like chocolate.
    Yep, it’s going to be cold for this time of year
