"I ran across this recipe on and just had to try it out. It sounded too good to be true, but it really works. It comes out of the processor as soft-serve, but you can freeze it in a plastic container if you want it to be harder. You'll hardly know its not ice cream:) "

Step 1

Freeze banana pieces for at least 2 hours or until frozen solid.

Step 2

Place frozen banana pieces in food processor and pulse until it resembles "gravel".

Step 3

Once the "gravel" stage is reached, blend until smooth. Scrape the processor bowl as needed.

Step 4

Once the bananas look like soft-serve ice cream, add in cocoa powder and peanut butter.

Step 5

Blend until smooth.

Step 6

Serve immediately or spoon into a freezer-safe dish with a lid and store in the freezer.

Step 7

(If the banana mixture has a hard time getting going in the processor, you can loosen it up a bit with a small amount of almond or soy milk.)
