Chocolate Banana “Ice Cream”

Think of this as a recipe from your grandmother who really just gives you a list of ingredients and abstract “directions.”  Here’s a more traditional looking recipe, if you need that sort of thing (I did).  And then adjust to suit your needs.


  • Bananas – about 4-6 ripe ones
  • peanut butter (a couple spoonfuls – optional)
  • 1/3 cup (+/-) cocoa powder (I like Hershey’s Special Dark)
  • Chocolate Almond or Coconut Milk (optional)


  1. Slice a bunch of bananas
  2. Freeze them for at least 1 hour… or longer if you’re like me and either forget about them or are simply in “save the spotting bananas for something” mode.
  3. Throw frozen banana slices, a scoop or two of peanut butter, and cocoa powder in a food processor
  4. Blend until you get a creamy, soft serve consistency… add almond/coconut milk 1 tbsp at a time–if needed–to help get that consistency


This re-freezes, but needs time to defrost before you serve it again… it’ll be a solid chunk rather than soft-serve consistency.
