Healthy Banana "Ice Cream"

Hmmm, what to call this post? "one- or two-ingredient ice cream"? "chocolate banana ice cream"? "summer dessert in a flash"? "easy, healthy, non-dairy, delicious chocolate-banana ice cream"? That's a bit of a mouthful.... Of course, someone I know likes it being a mouth full! :)

I've mentioned before that this little cutie of mine currently can't have dairy. I think she'll grow out of it, but I've wondered at times if the poor thing would have to go her whole life without ice cream. (Not likely, but sometimes my imagination runs away with itself).

Well this "ice cream" was made with two ingredients: frozen bananas and cocoa powder. That's it. And it's oh-so-good. The panel votes "finger-licking good". :) I'd like to give someone some credit for the recipe, because this wasn't my idea, but I've seen it all over blogland recently--who knows where it was first or last?

It tastes really good and the fact that it's just made out of bananas is impressive. Your kids will love you, heck you could give it to them for breakfast. How would you rate?!

Want to make some? Here's what you do.

First, slice up some ripe bananas (no green left but not all mushy, ready-for-banana-bread style either). For the kids, I did a banana a piece.

Arrange on a plate and pop them into your freezer for about an hour or so.

When they are frozen and you are ready to go, put them into a blender or food processor and blend away! I added some cocoa powder to mine and it was great. 

Mmmm, look at that smooth creamyness.  

Spoon it into some bowls.

Admire the fact that it's healthy, good-tasting, and took barely any effor at all.

And snarf.

Bon appetite!
