Ingredients

  • 4 bananas, previously cut into coins and frozen
  • ¼ cup plain, unsweetened plant-based milk
  • ¼ cup cacao powder (substitute cocoa powder if preferred)

Instructions

  • Add frozen bananas and plant-based milk to the bowl of the food processor. Secure the lid. Holding tightly onto the lid of the food processor, pulse a few times to start breaking up the bananas.
  • Once the bananas are broken up into small chunks, add cacao powder to the food processor and pulse a few more times to incorporate it. Then, process on high until the nice cream is smooth and no banana chunks remain.
  • Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan or rectangular glass container for easy scooping and freeze for 1-2 hours.

Notes

It's best to use very ripe or overripe bananas as they are sweeter than those that are still slightly green or just ripe ones.
To keep this recipe soy-free, avoid using soy milk. To keep this recipe nut-free, use a plant-based milk that is free from nuts. To keep this recipe paleo-friendly, avoid using soy milk, oat milk, rice milk and other non-paleo milks. 
If you're not going to eat the nice cream in an hour and prefer to save it for later or the next day, store it in a freezer-safe airtight container instead. Leave out at room temperature for a few minutes to soften up before enjoying.
