  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder


  1. Slice the bananas into approximately 1/4 inch slices and place the on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, allowing the slices a little space in between so they don’t touch each other.

  2. Place them into the freezer and freeze for at least 3-4 hours to allow to fully harden.
  3. Place the frozen banana slices into the bowl of a food processor or a heavy duty blender.

  4. Process the banana, scraping the sides of the food processor as needed. After a few minutes, the mixture will resemble soft-serve ice cream.

  5. Add the dark cocoa powder at this time and blend again - you may need to use a spatula to help it along at this time.
  6. While you could eat the ice cream right now, it will be super soft, so I recommend transferring it to an airtight container and freezing until it’s a little more solid in about 1 hour.
