I love ice cream. Let us get that straight and out of the way fast.
Having said that, I do not really eat ice cream that often because of its content. As much as I want to eat ice cream, I just can’t eat too much of it. Why? It’s because my family has a history of diabetes.
I stay away from products with sugar in them, which is basically a lot of products out there. That being said, I always find ways to satisfy my own dessert cravings. Fortunately, the internet is a just a big world with a ton of different recipes.
This is where I got the idea of a two-ingredient dark chocolate ice cream from.
I don’t like wasting food. Quite often, our bananas become so ripe so fast. Because I don’t like throwing food out, I use these bananas for my ice cream. They are perfect for this dessert. Since the bananas are already sweet, I always use dark chocolate to balance the sweetness and the bitterness in the ice cream.
I tell you that this homemade, healthy ice cream is heaven.
If you are an avid fan of dark chocolate, you will love this ice cream. If not, then, you can substitute other flavors such as strawberries, vanilla, and or something else.
The texture of this ice cream is the same as regular ice cream’s. You may taste a bit of banana but it is not evident because of the dark chocolate’s taste.
All you need is 2 to 3 ripe bananas and 2 to 3 tablespoons of dark chocolate cocoa. No more or less than those ingredients.
Without further ado, let’s make this tasty two-ingredient dark chocolate ice cream.
Slice the bananas. Place them on a parchment covered baking sheet. Freeze them for 20-25 minutes. Note: Use parchment paper to avoid the bananas from sticking on the sheet.
Put the frozen bananas and the dark chocolate powder in a food processor. A blender would be a good substitute if you don’t have the food processor. Blend ingredients until they are mixed together and look like a soft serve ice cream. Note: You can add honey or sugar if the ice cream tastes bitter. You can also add other ingredients like sprinkles or chocolate chunks, if you desire.
Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.
- 2-3 ripe bananas
- 2-3 tbsp of dark chocolate cocoa
- 1 tbsp honey or sugar (optional)
- Nuts of your choice for topping (optional)
- Chocolate syrup for drizzling (optional)
