Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frozen Banana Ice Cream (+ VIDEO!)

August 22, 2018

If there’s something you must know about me, it’s that I love the texture of frozen bananas. Something about a frozen banana takes it from a sad, mushy mess to next level goodness. Since my constitution runs cold, I’m not supposed to eat a lot of cold food, but I treat myself when it’s hot outside, which means I eat frozen banana ice cream a minimum of once a day during the summertime. When frozen bananas are cut up into chunks, they have a doughy texture I love using in frozen banana ice cream to mimic cookie dough chunks. I’m actually surprised that to my knowledge, no one has written about this, but I’m here to tell you my favorite frozen banana ice cream hack AND I filmed an IGTV episode to go along with it!

(serves 2)

Frozen bananas
Raw cacao powder
Raw cacao nibs
Ghee (omit if v/veg)

1. Cut up your bananas into 1/2” width size coins and put them in the freezer for a few hours or overnight. I like to use these reusable silicone bags called Stasher bags.
2. Put about 4 medium size frozen bananas into a high speed blender (preferably one that has a tamper to make blending easier).
3. Put 1 Tbsp of raw cacao powder in with your bananas. Don’t put in too much chocolate as you want this to be a lighter choc flavor rather than heavier.
4. Add 1 Tbsp of ghee (omit if v/veg).
5. Add just enough water to blend it all together and still maintain a thick consistency. (I’m doing about 1/8 cup.)
6. Blend ‘er all up! Work from low speed to high speed and use your tamper to fully incorporate the ingredients. (You’ll know your mixture is ready when it forms 4 small mounds.)

7. Add about 2 Tbsp of raw cacao nibs to your mixture. These will be your choc chips.
8. Set aside your ice cream. Take a few of your frozen banana coins and cut them through the center each way into quarters. These will be your cookie dough bites.
9. Lightly sprinkle raw cacao powder over your cookie dough bites to give them an extra chocolatey layer. Put your cookie dough bites into your mixture.
10. Using a spoon, mix it all up. OPTIONAL: Add more raw cacao for extra chocolatey goodness.
11. Pour your ice cream into your bowls.
12. Bon appétit!
