Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream recipe is so easy to make and a great way to beat a chocolate craving. It only contains four ingredients: Banana, Cocoa powder, Peanut Butter, Chocolate chips. Let's just say it's the standard of go-to healthy desserts to please everyone. This recipe comes from one of my favorite photographers on Google Plus, Ellie Kennard. I'm always inspired by her beautiful photography and brilliant recipes.

Ellie says..."Don't let the fact that it's good for you put you off trying this out! (No ice cream maker needed.)

Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

by Ellie Kennard

Serves 2 or 3

Ingredients

2 Bananas peeled and cut into medallions and frozen for several hours
1 tbsp organic plain Cocoa powder
1 tbsp Peanut Butter, with nothing but peanuts in it - no sugar, salt, added oils etc. (optional, but if you leave it out you have to change the title!)
1 tbsp honey, optional
Small handful of unsweetened plain chocolate chips (Camino Organic 71%) for a bit of crunch

Directions

Put your frozen banana pieces into a high speed blender or food processor and blend. Keep on blending, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed as you watch the chunks of banana transition through a kind of dry looking mixture, then start to resemble soft serve ice cream.
Add this point add in the additional ingredients - cocoa powder, honey, peanut butter, chocolate chips - and keep blending to incorporate and aerate the ice cream.

Either eat at once or put into a container and freeze for a little while.
Make it a 2 fruit serving by serving it with strawberries, blueberries, etc.
