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.

I am also sharing this recipe with Joy of Desserts, Simply Sugar and Gluten Free, Beauty and Bedlam, Lady Behind the Curtain, Miz Helen’s Country Cottage, This Chick Cooks, Food Trip Friday, Sweet as Sugar Cookies and Cybele Pascal Allergen-Free Cuisine.

  1. I made this for my kids a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit! I love that the frozen bananas have a soft serve ice cream consistency. Now, I’m keeping a stash of bananas in the fridge so whenever they want “ice cream” they can have it! (My oldest daughter liked hers with Sunbutter too!)

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and come back soon!

  3. Wow, that’s so easy and must be tasty. So good to know frozen bananas can turn into “ice cream” just by giving them a whirl in the mixer. Thanks for sharing at Joy of Desserts! šŸ™‚
