I love all forms of ice cream. Unfortunately I can't eat it every day, so I love to whip up a healthier version. My nephew definitely shares my sweet tooth, so this one's for him. He loves bananas so I wanted to show him how creamy and sweet they can be without any dairy or added sugar!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the frozen bananas, cocoa powder, almond butter and coconut milk in a high-speed blender. Blend on high speed; use the tamper to push down on the ingredients so they blend evenly. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Stop the blender, add the chocolate chips and salt. Blend again until combined.
  2. Serve immediately, while it's soft like soft-serve ice cream, or transfer it to a freezer-safe container and freeze until firmer and easy to scoop, about 2 hours. Can be frozen up to 1 month. 

Cook’s Note

If you're serving the nice cream from the freezer, let it sit out for up to 30 minutes to soften for optimal creaminess; because of its high water content and low amount of fat, it gets very hard in the freezer.
