A chocolate rich dessert with only two ingredients? Yes! That’s exactly what you get with this chocolate banana ice cream!
This recipe is an instant way to have a treat with minimal fuss, and the best part is that it puts those frozen bananas you’ve been saving up for smoothies to use.
I’m almost positive every time bananas are purchased AT LEAST 1 or 2 will reach that point where no one in my house will eat them. So, in order to not throw out any food, I freeze them and tell myself that I’ll use them for smoothies later.
And later comes and then… I forget. I mean, I use frozen bananas all the time but sometimes I totally fail because I find them in a zip bag hiding in the back of the freezer. Yeah, you’re shaking your head because this happens to you too!
The good news is that you can put them to use with this recipe because the sweet chocolate masks it all.
You can also use those frozen ripe bananas to whip up a batch of banana muffins or 2 ingredients cookies…but I don’t know about you, turning on the oven is the LAST thing I want to do when it’s hot outside.
Can you make this nut free?
Yes, you can. You can still enjoy this frozen chocolate treat by using this Sunflower Nutella in place of the chocolate hazelnut spread.
