Blended Banana “Ice Cream”

August 9, 2013

So calling this Ice cream is a bit of  stretch…

The base of this yummy frozen treat is frozen banana, but once they’re blended up with some cocoa and peanut butter it’s tough to distinguish that you’re actually eating frozen banana puree.  Such a great healthy treat for the kids and my kids LOVE it!

We’ve added cocoa and peanut butter to our banana mixture but you could most certainly leave it plain, add chocolate chips or any other combination you’d like!

I’ve made my banana “ice cream” using a food processor, I found it needed a little bit of liquid to really get it smoothed out but I imagine if you were using a vitamix you may not need to add any liquid at all?

Frozen Banana “Ice Cream” Dessert  makes about 6 small ice cream cones.

  • 4-5 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 3 spoonfuls of cocoa powder (or to taste)
  • 1 heaping spoonful of peanut butter
  • almond milk (just enough to get it smoothed out in the food processor or blender) *you can use any liquid you choose, I wanted to keep ours dairy free.

Put everything into a food processor and pulse to break down the bananas.  Add liquid if needed.  Pulse until you’ve achieved a smooth, soft serve consistency.

 

Serve in bowls or cones.

Enjoy!
