Bring on warmer weather with my Double Dark Chocolate Nice Cream recipe!
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.
- 4 medium bananas frozen
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
- splash unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Serve in a bowl or in fun cones!
You can also run the bananas through a Yonanas machine and stir the rest of the ingredients together.
