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!
