Vegan Chocolate Banana Ice Cream
One of the best things about eating a plant-based diet is that you can essentially have dessert for breakfast and it's completely healthy! For example, you wouldn't often catch someone starting their day with a huge bowl of regular chocolate ice cream because it simply isn't nutritious enough to do so. However, when it comes to banana ice cream it's a completely different story; the only ingredients in this bowl of heaven are frozen bananas, raw cacao powder and a tiny amount of water or non-dairy milk if necessary. Super simple and super healthy! Plus it tastes absolutely incredible and that's the most important thing, right?
- 3-4 ripe frozen bananas (peel and chop them before freezing)
- 1-2 tbsp water or non-dairy milk
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder (or just regular cocoa powder if you don't have cacao)
Put the frozen banana chunks into your food processor then add the non-dairy milk or water and blend until the bananas are a smooth and creamy consistency (it can take anywhere from 2 - 10 minutes, depending on how powerful your food processor is!). You may need to stop the food processor every minute or so to make sure the motor doesn't overheat and to break the banana up a bit with a spoon to ensure it blends properly. Once it's smooth add the cacao/cocoa powder and blend again until it's incorporated, then transfer the banana ice cream into a bowl and enjoy!
