Chocolate Banana "Ice Cream"
This is a dairy-free, low fat, naturally sweet alternative to ice cream. The frozen bananas create a texture very similar to ice cream. You won’t believe how great it tastes! The recipe below makes one serving with 150 calories and 2 grams of fat.
1 frozen banana*
1/4 to 1/2 cup plain almond or soy milk (just to thin out a bit)
1 tablespoon good quality cocoa powder
Optional sweetener (e.g., honey, stevia) to taste, but note that the banana already adds sweetness
Blend cocoa powder and almond milk in food processor or blender. Add frozen banana and pulse on low. Stir down any mixture on sides of jar and keep pulsing until well incorporated. Pour into a dish and enjoy immediately.
*You may cut banana into slices before freezing; store in a Ziploc bag.
