Despite all those fillers, this 4-ingredient Natural Chocolate Nice Cream offers the same smooth deliciousness as typical chocolate ice cream. Plus, it’s free from dairy, vegan, and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes. This is eaten with cake. The fresh and enhanced recipes are adapted from my original chocolate version of Banana Ice Cream Recipe, and they use natural ingredients only, without any more sweeteners.
You can, of course, add some stevia, or pure maple syrup, or your favorite sweetener if you want if you’re not a dark chocolate fan. But it’s not necessary for the recipe, particularly when you start with ripened bananas sometimes called “nature candies” because of their ability to naturally sweeten recipes without added sugar. For those of you who don’t want a banana flavor, this healthy ice cream adds extra cocoa to mask the banana, and choosing to use nut butter (or your favorite nut-free alternative) masks it even more. I couldn’t even taste any bananas, frankly. Then I love bananas again, but maybe I’m not the right person to ask.
Just sound like ice cream, well, nice, isn’t it? It means that ice cream is not sweet, and that is, of course, but if you are looking for a lower alternative in fat and calories, this frozen treat is better. This is also organic, vegan, gluten-free, milk-free, and sugar-free.
2 cups frozen sliced bananas
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1. In a high-speed blender or Vitamix, place all the ingredients and combine to create a dense, smooth consistency. Add a tablespoon more milk as required.
2. Serve straight away or move to a bread loaf lined with parchment. Then put in the freezer to firm up for 1 to 2 hours.
3. Serve with chocolate flakes.
You can need to add 1-2 more almond milk teaspoons, depending on how frozen your bananas are.
