View Full Version : 1 Minute Chocolate Ice Cream
04-16-2011, 03:48 PM
For the past month, I've been loving this soft serve ice cream, sometimes a couple times a day. :heart Can even be your meal. Liquid Marine Phytoplankton easily blends into this without changing the flavor. Could work with some other greens/supplements as well.
2-3 frozen Bananas (broken into halves or thirds)
1 tsp Cacao Powder
Sm Amt Water (around 1-2 Tbs)
Blend on low until consistency of soft serve ice cream.
This is the Vitamix version. Other blenders may require a bit different prep.

wow! :-) Maybe I'll make it tomorrow. I have some bananas in the freezer already.

I changed the water amount because you really want very little water so it becomes whipped. Normally I don't find consistency makes much difference in flavor, but in this case it does.

Can I use carob powder?

wow, a great fast recipe. i love bana ice cream for 2 reasons.
1. it tastes delicious
2. it reduces the amount of sugar required in the ice cream because of its own sweetness. we all gotta watch our figures don't we? :)
i'll try this in my migimix mixer and see how it turns out.

Can I use carob powder? If you use one that tastes similar to chocolate, it will work very well. You may need to experiment a bit, but should be pretty close to the same. You can always add cinnamon, vanilla or a sweetener if you need to tweak the flavor a bit.

I always start out with very little water and only add more if needed. Sometimes it just needs a bit more to get going with the frozen bananas.
My next plan is finding something equally as tasty as chocolate. Could be carob or something fruity.

Yummo you lucky Americans. We had a cyclone in Australia a few months ago that wiped out most of our bananas and they've gone up 700% in price.
Will look forward to making this recipe NEXT YEAR.

yummy banana ice cream. i always use my food processor to make banana ice cream. no water required. some food are better at making banana ice cream than others, mind you. my 14 cup one is amazing for making it. the with of the bowl allows the frozen bananas more space to move around.

Thank you so much for posting. It was delicious. I think I'm going to walk over to the store and get some more bananas I can freeze.
oh and I used carob powder because that is what I had. I didn't need to add any water or almond milk.

Thanks for posting this, I think. I had it like 3 times in the last 4 days. I am going to go thru a ton of bananas and strawberries. It is so good! :drool:
05-14-2011, 07:36 PM
This is a treat! I also use almond milk for my liquid. For strawberry I use 1 banana and 5 strawberries. So good!

I tried raw carob powder (a good kind) and was pleasantly surprised to find it works very well. Good news as I'm trying to rarely use cacao.
I'm sure nut milk tastes amazing. With water, it keeps it low fat for times when you need to.
