This is the healthiest chocolate ice cream you can make, and it tastes like heaven! Only 2 ingredients needed!


  • 4 very ripe frozen bananas
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder

For the chocolate sauce:

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp raw cacao powder


  • Chopped raw almonds
  • Cacao nibs


  1. Cut the bananas into 3 or 4 pieces (or cut them into coins if your blender or food processor is not very powerful), put them in an airtight container and freeze overnight. If your blender/food processor can’t blend the frozen bananas, add some plant milk (coconut milk and nut milks are awesome to make ice cream) or some non frozen bananas (I’d use 3 frozen and 3 non frozen bananas).
  2. Blend the bananas until you have a super creamy banana ice cream. Be patient, keep blending!
  3. Add the cacao powder and blend again.
  4. When it’s ready, you can eat the ice cream immediately, but it will be quite soft. You can also transfer it to an airtight container and freeze for at least 1 hour or until solid. If it’s too hard, let stand at room temperature for at least 10 minutes or until it has the perfect consistency.
  5. To make the chocolate sauce just mix the two ingredients.
  6. Serve with your favorite toppings.
