Whether you’re on a diet or simply trying to tame a sweet tooth, dessert is the hardest thing to resist, especially as the temperature heats up! This is where the trusty banana comes in. When frozen then blended, it can take many forms – including that of “ice cream”.
While admittedly this isn’t ice cream in the strictest sense of the word, it is an easy and delicious dairy-free alternative that is perfect if you don’t have the space for an ice cream maker but still want a quick fix of summery sweetness.
To create this simple and foolproof summer treat, you’ll need just two ingredients –cocoa powder or chocolate bars, and ripe bananas. I’ve used the Xocitto 100% Organic Drinking Chocolate Bars here, as I find that the slight bitterness of the cocoa balances well with the fruity sweetness of ripe banana.
This recipe is extremely versatile – if you’re craving a smoothie, simply add milk or single cream to the same ingredients. It also makes a great base for a sundae when combined with fruit coulis and whipped cream.
Ingredients 4 bananas, sliced 2 bars Xocitto 100% Organic Drinking Chocolate Honey or sugar to taste (optional)
