Banana Chip ‘Ice Cream’

banana

This is a nice dessert option after a season of holiday sweets.  It does not require added sugar for it’s natural sweetness.  All you need are a few ripe bananas and a food processor.  Even your kids can have fun making this ‘ice cream’ as they turn their favorite fruit into a delicious frozen treat.  YUM!

Banana Chip ‘Ice Cream’ (serves 2)

2 small (or one large) ripe banana, peeled and sliced

1/4 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips

Chopped nuts and chocolate syrup, if desired

Freeze sliced bananas for at least 2 hours in an airtight container. Chop chocolate chips with knife on cutting board (or in small food processor), set aside.

Blend frozen bananas in a small food processor. Scrape down food processor as banana goes from crumbled to gooey and again to smooth consistency (like ‘soft-serve’). Add chocolate and blend briefly to combine.  Eat immediately garnished with chopped nuts and/or chocolate syrup.  Enjoy!
