All you need are frozen bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder & a food processor.
Here’s what you do for prep:
I break the too-ripe bananas into smaller pieces and put them in a bag into the freezer.
When we want dessert:
I pull the bananas out of the freezer at dinner time & let them defrost a bit in my food processor.
After dinner, I start pulsing the bananas to get them going. They are the base of this “ice cream”. Next I grab any peanut butter or nut butter I have on hand. I add a few scoops to the bananas as they whirl around in the processor. Once the peanut butter & bananas begin to incorporate together, I taste test. Add my peanut butter if it tastes too banana-y. Then I add my 3rd ingredient: unsweetened cocoa powder. Keep swirling until it looks like chocolate ice cream. Divide into bowls and add any toppings. Lately we’ve been adding in some mini marshmallows for a rocky road vibe.
