I grew up on this luscious mouth-feast. My parents and I would often have it for dinner (the justification being that it’s actually pretty healthy), and we spent years tweaking, arguing over, and perfecting the recipe. It’s still evolving. However, the basics stay the same–and its current iteration is profoundly delicious.
Bananas frozen at just the right ripeness make for perfect sweetness. Coconut or nut milk gives the ice cream another layer of flavor and adds creaminess. Cacao nibs create a crunch you’ll never forget. The only necessary tool is a vita mix.
I now present to you our family secret: chocolate banana ice cream. Vegan. Sugar-free. Delicious.
This recipe has endless variations. Add some vanilla. Or cashews. Or berries instead of chocolate. And it’s not just a dinner food; you can have it for breakfast too.
