Ingredients

4 ripe bananas

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup skim milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Mint extract, as needed

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Peel and cut the bananas into 1-inch rounds. Place the bananas in a freezer bag and freeze for at least 3 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, milk and vanilla.
  3. If your banana slices have been frozen for longer than a day, let them thaw for about 15 minutes. Place the frozen bananas, chocolate mixture and salt in a food processor and blend well, stopping to scrape down the sides often to get a smooth, even consistency. Add a drop of mint extract to the ice cream, blend and taste. For a more intense mint flavor, increase the mint a drop at a time until you achieve the desired taste. Finally, add the chocolate chips into the ice cream and stir by hand until they're mixed throughout.
  4. Scoop the ice cream into single-serving bowls and serve immediately or cover in plastic wrap and freeze. If you're saving these for a later time, remove the bowls from the freezer about 5 minutes before serving.
