Chocolate Nice Cream

Nice cream is non-dairy ice cream made with fruit instead of milk. Make sure to allow the bananas to get nice and ripe first so they can sweeten the dessert naturally.

3 very ripe bananas, frozen
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 to 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
a few tablespoons of plant milk or water if necessary to blend

To freeze the bananas, peel and break into one inch chunks. Place in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for several hours or over night.

In a blender or food processor, mix the frozen banana pieces, cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla and salt. Add a tablespoon or two of plant milk or water at a time if necessary to blend into a smooth consistency.

Taste the nice cream. If the bananas were fully ripe, it should be sweet enough. If desired, add a small amount of sugar, syrup or other sweetener.

Enjoy the soft-serve texture right away or freeze it for later. In the freezer it will firm up to be like traditional ice cream.

Dear Diane,
I tried this recipe. Hard to believe, but it took a little while until the bananas got very ripe.
It tastes really interesting but good. Did'nt know that it's possible to make ice cream with these ingredients.
Do you mind if I would post the German version on my blog?
Have a nice day
