My family love this “guilt free” treat and I always keep chopped bananas in the freezer for an instant creation.  When ripe frozen bananas and cocoa powder are blended together you get a creamy scrumptious treat.

Ingredients:

(makes 4 ramekin servings)

2 medium bananas, chopped and frozen

1 tbsp cocoa powder or raw cacao

Method:

  1. Put the frozen chopped banana pieces in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

  2. When the mixture is smooth, add the cocoa powder and blend until well mixed.

  3. For a soft ice cream, serve immediately or for a firmer ice cream, transfer the blended mixture into a freezer container for at least an hour.

Serving options:

Sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts

Sprinkle with shredded coconut

Serve with berries

Decorate with fresh mint leaves
