Easy Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Ice Cream

Ice cream isn’t something we eat a lot of in our house but sometimes I just have a craving for it. We always have bananas and cacao powder on hand so I can make a batch of this easy banana chocolate ice cream in a few minutes.

I used the Cave Girl NZ recipe for this and just simplified it a little. Feel free to add extra toppings if you want to. She has a great recipe book which you can buy here

  • 1 heaped tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large bananas (peeled, chopped in large slices and frozen)
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons cold water
  • Put the cacao, nut butter, vanilla, bananas into a food processor
  • Blend until the mixture is crumbly
  • Slowly add in the water to make it a soft serve consistency
  • When it’s done serve immediately or keep it in the freezer
  • When you take it out of the freezer it will need a few minutes to soften before eating
  • Like I said, you can add some toppings – nuts, seeds, fruit, coconut flakes – or eat it by itself. It’s yummy either way!

You can always change up the flavour by adding a few drops of peppermint or orange essential oils. Make sure the oils are good quality ones, you can purchase them by clicking here.
