Vegan Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

Bananas and blended frozen bananas should be a complete separate thing. If only people knew just how much frozen blended bananas taste like ice cream, perhaps they wouldn’t even bother loading themselves up with all the fat and sugar, and have this natural fruit instead. Anyone who has yet tried a frozen blended banana should do it, now! The taste is mind-blowing. I just don’t k now how it works, how can something that tastes quite regular in its normal form taste like such a treat when you freeze it? I would love to know this!

A few months ago, I tried making some banana ice cream with avocado and it turned out amazing. But here, even bananas on their own also turn out great.

I tried adding carob powder to this to see how it was, and it turned out amazing. It almost covers the “banana” taste! The vanilla also really makes this take a leap to its taste. I think the best tasting banana chocolate ice cream is that you don’t blend it too fully, so that there are chunks with no chocolate and chunks with more. You can totally replace carob with cacao but I just like using carob for its extra sweetness.

Wow, topping it with cacao nibs is amazing because when it’s blended up with the sweet bananas, you can’t really taste the bitterness – and it becomes very chocolatey.

I would’ve also put some other toppings like coconut and fruits if I had the chance, but those are all things you can try. Seriously, I urge you to make this for anyone who loves desserts! This can show people that you can eat healthy and enjoy a treat! Bananas are probably nature’s greatest creamy dessert you can ever find.

Vegan Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

2 frozen bananas
1 tablespoon carob/cacao powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon carob powder
Sprinkle: 1 teaspoon cacao nibs

Be sure that you freeze two bananas overnight.

Put the frozen banana, carob or cacao powder and vanilla extract into the blender. Blend until the bananas are smooth but not fully blended, so you have some parts with more chocolate and others with less. (It tastes much better this way). Spoon the mixture out into a bowl and leave it in the freezer for the moment.

Combine the coconut oil, almond butter (you can use other nut butters if you wish) and carob powder in a bowl. Stir with a spoon until it’s soft and become more liquid like. Briefly mix it with the ice cream and stir for a little bit. Put the bowl back into the freezer for another 30 minutes and serve with a teaspoon of cacao nibs sprinkled on top.
