Raw: Chunky Monkey Goes Healthy

banana ice cream

Perhaps the tastiest and most simple dessert of all time is banana ice cream! This is a virtually guilt-free dessert that’s great for kids and adults alike. Ditch the stuff with sugar and go natural, you won’t be disappointed!  Here I’ve taken the simple one ingredient recipe and fancified it to my liking. You can achieve the soft-serve like consistency in any blender, but it’s far easier if you’ve got access to a high speed blender such as a Vita-Mix or BlendTec. A food processor may work as well.

  • 4-7 frozen bananas (simply freeze overnight in a freezer container or bag)
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder (I used Navitas)
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter (or peanut butter)

Add frozen bananas to the blender and pulse them until they are in small pieces, then go high speed and blend until smooth, pushing down the sides when necessary. Add in cacao powder and blend well being careful not to over blend or liquify. Transfer to a bowl and stir in your nut butter. Devour!
