Another week, another surprisingly delicious, shockingly simple banana ice cream recipe! With desserts like these, there’s no reason to let “spoiled” bananas go to waste! (Unless you’re allergic to bananas, in which case you wouldn’t have brought them home to begin with. I hope.)

Without further adieu, I give you Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream! Super-yummy, though the Banana Bread Soft Serve is still my one and only favorite. There’s just something about allspice, amirite people?
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream

(Makes slightly more than one quart of ice cream.)


4-5 over-ripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
1/2 cup chocolate chips or chocolate bark


Combine the frozen bananas, vanilla extract, cinnamon and cocoa powder in a food processor and mix until smoothly blended. Sample the batter and, if it’s not sweet enough for you, add a tablespoon or two of sugar (or other vegan sweetener) and chocolate chips or bark and process until blended. Try not to overprocess the batter, as this can result in soupy ice cream. If the soft serve is too much on the soft side, transfer it to a covered container and store in the freezer for an hour or until it’s thickened up a bit.

Optional: for more finely chopped chocolate chunks, process the chocolate chips or bark first, and then add the bananas and follow the directions from there.

Enjoy: immediately! often! for breakfast, lunch or dinner! with omnivores! for an audience! but not with dogs, cause chocolate isn’t kind to them, yo! (Sub in carob powder and/or chips for a dog-friendly recipe.)
