Last year I posted a recipe for raw one-ingredient banana ice cream with chocolate chips. Since berry season is here I decided to throw some berries in the mix and the result is one tasty dairy-free frozen desert. This raw banana, berry and chocolate chip ice cream is easy and delicious. You won’t be missing the heavy creaminess of ice cream – especially in the hot summer months. You get the refreshment without the heaviness – you won’t miss ice cream at all.
6 over-ripe bananas
1. Peel bananas and cut into chunks. Lay banana pieces on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for a minimum of two hours.
2. Process the bananas in a food processor until smooth – this process will take a few minutes. Every so often when the bananas rose above the blades or shifted to one side I would push the bananas down with a spatula and then continue pureeing. I repeated that a few times.
3. Once the bananas are a smooth, creamy consistency add in almost half a bag of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and berries. Blend in the food processor until combined.
4. Put the banana mixture in a container and re-freeze for a minimum of two hours.
5. Scoop and serve.
