No Guilt Chocolate Banana "Ice Cream" tastes just like chocolate ice cream! Eat straight out of the blender with a soft serve consistency, or freeze for a firm texture to be scooped into cones.
Okay, so this "ice cream" really isn't an ice cream. Although, it's consistency is much similar to ice cream, and it tastes just as good! It also has MUCH less sugar, hence the "no guilt."
When you blend together ripe bananas and cocoa powder in a blender, you get this creamy, guilt-free frozen treat! Yes, you heard me right. All you need is bananas, cocoa powder, a blender, and if you are a peanut butter lover, peanut butter to make it that much better, which I definitely recommend.
This recipe is seriously the easiest healthy "ice cream" you will ever make, and your husband and kids will probably even mistake it for regular ice cream. My significant other who steers away from all things healthy and who wouldn't be caught dead eating a banana, LOVED this ice cream! And you can bet that I don't feel a bit guilty feeding this ice cream, to my toddler, for breakfast!
No Guilt Chocolate Banana "Ice Cream"
A chocolate banana ice cream that your spouse and kids will mistake for regular chocolate ice cream! Only 3 ingredients and as simple as tossing them in the blender!
- 3-4 Frozen Bananas
- 2-3 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
- Splash Coconut Milk/Regular Milk If Ice Cream is not blending easily
- Chocolate chunks/chips, coconut flakes, berries, etc. for sprinkling on top Optional
Place the frozen bananas, cocoa powder, and peanut butter into blender.
Blend on high power until it reaches a smooth consistency. Scrape down the sides as necessary. Add a touch of coconut/regular milk if not blending smoothly.
For a soft serve ice cream, serve immediately. For a firm texture, place in the freezer for at least another hour or two.
Sprinkle with toppings if desired.
Tips For Making No Guilt Chocolate Banana "Ice Cream"
- Slice the bananas before freezing. If you freeze whole bananas they do not blend very easily.
- If you want a sweeter ice cream, use very ripe bananas.
- Line the tray/plate with parchment paper, if freezing on tray/plate. This keeps the bananas from sticking.
- Add a touch of coconut milk or regular milk, if things are not blending easily. I personally like regular milk, as I am not a huge fan of the coconut taste.
