It was 100 degrees outside last weekend and my AC was broken for three days. So, what’s a girl to do? Why, make her own ice cream treats of course, to keep me cool in my 100 degree house!
Super easy recipe, 5 ingredients, and it tastes delicious!
Let us begin!
You will need:
– 3 frozen bananas
– 5 pitted dates
– 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
– 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
– 1 tsp vanilla
You can also add protein powder to this mix and/0r almond milk, if you want to turn this into a chocolate chip protein shake!
In your food processor, we will put in our frozen bananas, dates, cacao powder and vanilla to process together:
Once it is thoroughly blended together and creamy, will add in our raw cacao nibs to the mix (you don’t want to add it in beforehand, or all the chocolate chips will break up):
After the chips are blended in, your mixture should look something like this:
At this point you have two options: Start spooning the mixture out now, and serve it as a soft-serve ice-cream, or put in the blender to freeze a bit more. I personally like to eat it right away!
Top the chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips, and you are ready to eat!
