Chocolate Banana “Ice Cream”

I typically eat my bananas with breakfast although they also make delicious desserts. Here’s the proof: a few weeks ago I froze some ripe bananas before they spoiled. I did a quick Internet search to figure out what I could do with the frozen fruit. A recipe on Dr. Weil’s website for Cocoa-Banana Frozen Dessert got me thinking…I could try something like this! Below is my version of the recipe:

Peel and mix 4 frozen bananas together with an electric mixer until smooth. Next, mix in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Top with either fruit, grain-sweetened chocolate chips, unsalted peanuts, or all three! Makes 4 servings.
