Chocolate Almond Nice Cream
Chocolate almond nice cream is made with just 4 ingredients, and uses banana only as the sweetener! This healthy ice cream is dairy-free, refined sugar-free, super chocolatey, rich from the almond butter and so easy to make. It will quickly become your new healthy soft-serve ice cream once you try it!
Start by freezing your bananas (if not already frozen). Take 2 ripe bananas, peel, and dice them into 1-2 inch pieces. Lay the banana pieces on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer and allow the banana to fully freeze. The bananas will take about 2 hours to freeze.
When the banana pieces are frozen, it’s time to make chocolate almond nice cream! Place the frozen banana pieces in a food processor and pulse a few times to begin to break them down. After that, turn the food processor on and allow it to run for 30 seconds, breaking the banana down. It will look kind of stuck right about then.
Add in 1 tbsp of milk (up to 2), almond butter, and cocoa powder. Turn the food processor back on, and let it run for 30 seconds. Scrape down the side and break up any chunks that get stuck – we want smooth nice cream! Continue to process until you are left with smooth, creamy nice cream. You can use it right away, or place it in a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and freeze to make it a little more solid and scoopable.
Serve and enjoy with almost slivers and/or chocolate chips!
